084: How to be original with Glenn Robbins

Glenn Robbins is the proud Superintendent at the Tabernacle Township School District. His passion is harnessing a school culture that thrives on design thinking skills, innovative digital spaces, BYOD/1to1, and Makerspaces. In addition, Glenn encourages all students to have a voice, not only in building a school culture but also in designing student-led courses. He was named as a 2016 Digital Principal of the Year by NASSP for exhibiting bold, creative leadership in his drive to harness the potential of new technologies to further learning goals for staff, students, and the school community. Glenn led his former school to become the first school in New Jersey history to receive the 2016 SETDA Student Voices Award, which honors an outstanding K-12 school or district that has leveraged technology to dramatically improve the educational experiences and achievement of their students.
Glenn has been recognized by numerous organizations for his innovative technology implementation methods and has been a featured speaker at numerous events across the globe. His extensive travels to various schools across the globe have helped to diversify his views on education and implement new instructional methods to better both students and staff. By empowering students and staff to have a growth mindset through design thinking, while implementing digital tools, we can better prepare them to be agile, flexible and adaptive, towards the profound shifts that they will encounter in life.
