Overview

PRAISE FOR SCALING UP SUCCESS

"Scaling Up Success tackles one of the greatest challenges facing school districts: How do we take successful programs and best practices serving a few classrooms or students and scale them up to serve schools throughout the district? Using innovations in technology as an example, the essays take a thoughtful and well-documented look at the issues facing districts and the ways in which scaling up can be accomplished. This book brings together some of the best education authors and researchers and provides a compelling study on how districts can scale up technology-based educational innovations as well as for how any innovation or policy might be spread to every student and school."
—Thomas W. Payzant, superintendent, Boston Public Schools

"A thoughtful and important update on the power and potential of information technology in education, and a must-read for anyone wondering if the computer revolution can and should make it to our nation's classrooms."
—Michael J. Feuer, executive director, Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education, The National Academics

"Scaling Up Success offers two important benefits. First, the authors provide very useful and interesting examples of technology-based innovations. Second, the authors' discussions of the challenges involved in taking improvements to scale have relevance beyond technology."
—Susan Fuhrman, dean, Graduate School of Education, University of Pennsylvania

"Scaling Up Success includes an impressive array of authors in one volume and provides key lessons learned on the reform scale up process, and on the transfer of technological innovations in particular."
—Amanda Datnow, Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California
