The Tulsa Tech Board of Education, along with Superintendent and CEO Dr. Steve Tiger, recently announced the additions of Dr. Scott Williams, Dr. Joyce McClellan and Russ Hester to the executive leadership team of the school district.
Russ Hester joins Tulsa Tech as chief operations officer from Francis Tuttle Technology Center in Oklahoma City, where he was the assistant superintendent of operations and instructional support since 2002. Previously, Hester was the national training director and distance learning program director at American Education Corporation in Oklahoma City. He earned his Master of Education degree from Jones International University in Denver, Colo., in 2005, and also a bachelor's degree in liberal arts from the University of Central Oklahoma. Hester was named to the prestigious Computerworld Premier 100 Leader's Award in 2010.
At Francis Tuttle Technology Center in Oklahoma City, pilot projects using iPhones and Kindle e-readers are in their early stages, as administrators weigh technical and financial considerations, said Chief Technology Officer Russ Hester.
He estimated that students might even save up to 50% on the cost of textbooks by buying them electronically. As an example, he said a complete set of textbooks for several courses in a single curriculum and a Kindle device, sold at perhaps half its retail price, might cost $1,600, compared with $2,000 for the traditional textbooks alone.
