Brian Gray,
Sanborn Regional High School
 Terry Bullard,
Bedford School District 

Brian Gray has been leading the technological revolution Sanborn Regional High School for nearly eight years. In the classroom, he replaced traditional textbooks and paper assignments with an iPad-based curriculum. His students now gather information from an interactive textbook and online sources, then complete assignments using a wide variety of collaborative apps -- including Nearpod, GAFE, and KidBlog. Brian also conceived and co-developed the school’s Modern Media electives, in which students create video news segments that stream around the school, on a YouTube channel and even on local cable outlets. The class also features a Twitter feed and live streams Sanborn’s commencement ceremonies to friends and relatives of graduates around the world. 

As an avid basketball fan and coach, Brian takes technology to the court as well. He tracks his team’s progress with data collected on apps and video. Using this data, Brian has developed targets for his players that helped guide the team to a 19-0 record last season. He also created Sanborn’s annual 3-on-3 tournament, a wildly popular fundraiser that, needless to say, uses iPad-based apps to schedule games and record results. 

Brian’s work has garnered attention around the country, and even beyond U.S. borders. Visitors frequently observe his classroom -- including New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan, teachers and administrators from as far away as Afghanistan, and federal education officials. His class has been featured in numerous media outlets, including The Christian Science Monitor and National Public Radio.

Terry Bullard is in her 3rd year as the Director of Technology for the Bedford School District. Previously, she served as the Director of Technology for the Windham School District for 16 years and the Technology Director for the Manchester School District for 12½ years prior. As a Technology leader for over 30 years, her passion has been to implement a shared vision for effectively integratingtechnology to enhance teaching and learning. Considered a “Change Agent”, she challenges administrators and teachers alike to think outside the box as to how technology can be used to transform the world of teaching and learning. Terry believes that technology is more than a “tool” but that it is an integral part of student and professional life. 

Although Terry has been led many technology initiatives throughout her career, she is most passionate about the two one-to-one initiatives that she has implemented, the first in the Windham School District with the opening of it’s new high school in 2009 and the second at Bedford High School in 2015.  Terry believes that a one to one digital learning environment where students and teachers have access to content 24-7 creates unlimited opportunities to improve teaching and learning. A successful 21st century learning environment requires a team effort including staff, students, parents and the community in order to create a culture that embraces this paradigm shift. 

Each month, Terry also hosts two User’s Groups – Powerschool and Google Apps for Education administrators. Over 55 school districts attend meetings where a variety of topics are presented, shared and discussed.
