Julie Evans is the CEO of Project Tomorrow (www.tomorrow.org
), a national education nonprofit organization (formerly known as NetDay). Join us as Julie talks (and takes questions) about what has been learned from Speak Up, the annual national research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow. The Speak Up data represents the largest collection of authentic, unfiltered stakeholder input on education, technology, 21st century skills, schools of the future and science instruction. Education, business, and policy leaders report using the data regularly to inform federal, state, and local education programs. A copy of the "top ten" report is attached to this post.
Project Tomorrow is dedicated to empowering K-12 students to have a larger voice in improving education and learning. Ms. Evans has been CEO of this organization since 1999. Prior to this position, Ms. Evans enjoyed a very successful 17-year career in national and regional sales and marketing management with Unisys and two education technology startups. Ms. Evans is a graduate of Brown University and serves on the Board of Directors of Project Tomorrow, the KOCE-TV Education Advisory Council, the Childrens’ First Advisory Council and the Association of Women in Technology Council. She is a Frances Hesselbein Community Innovation Fellow and a frequent speaker, writer and commentator on children, education, science and technology issues. In April 2008, Ms. Evans was named as one of the Top Ten Most Influential People in Education Technology over the past 10 years by eSchool News, a leading national education publication.
Project Tomorrow is the nation's leading education nonprofit organization focused on empowering students to have a greater voice in their education. National results from Speak Up 2008 will be released at our annual National Congressional Briefing in Washington DC on March 24, 2009.
