And yet, schools seem to be terrified of being the first ones to adopt new ideas in technology. Somewhere between kindergarten and our last faculty meeting, the role of line leader seems to have gone from the best job on the board to a position that's just a little terrifying. When did we become so terrified of being a trailblazer Let's explore the risks, benefits, and transformations that can occur when a school embraces risk and is willing to step up and be first."
