Each summer, a select group of California school administrators has the unique opportunity to spend a week as interns at the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC). The school leaders work side-by-side with PARC’s research scientists to explore emerging technologies and discuss how they might affect education in the future. The program is sponsored by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) and Xerox Corporation.
In this episode, Steve Kay talks with TICAL cadre members Tim Landeck and Jim Scoolis about their experience as interns in the program. To learn more about the program or pursue some of the ideas Tim and Jim discuss, check out the following resources:
