Redefining Ready: Preparing the Workforce of the Future
Dr. Tim Bobrowski, Why Can't We Do This?
This episode features Dr. Tim Bobrowski, the Superintendent of Owsley County School District in Booneville, Kentucky. As Dr. Bobrowski discusses, the push for innovation within OCSD has been largely spurred by a simple but powerful question?—?“why can’t we do this?”
This question is especially powerful within the economically depressed, rural area in which OCSD resides. As a League of Innovative Schools member and Kentucky-designated District of Innovation School, much of Dr. Bobrowski’s work has focused on implementing a 24/7 digital learning plan that empowers his students to learn at all times while building the college mindsets and confidence needed to get to and through college. Listen in as he also describes the impact that has been realized in OCSD by switching from textbooks to open educational resources (OER).
