James Batson just lately obtained the Modern Know-how Director Award at Tech & Studying’s latest at Tech & Studying’s Innovative Leader awards in Illinois for his work selling accessible know-how in Fenton Group Excessive College District 100 in Illinois.  

Batson, is an Ed.D and the director of know-how for the Illinois district in Bensenville, a suburb of Chicago. For Batson, being modern isn’t about discovering a silver bullet. “It’s not trying to find that new shiny gadget and deploying it and hoping it does one thing,” he says. ”It is the way you thoughtfully and creatively use issues which are accessible to the fullest extent.”
