This past year, AMS Pictures joined forces with the Texas Education Agency to develop an initiative that features the amazing transformation happening in Texas classrooms due to the incorporation of technology into curriculum. From the beginning stages of research, it was obvious that digital learning was causing quite a revolution in Texas education. The AMS Pictures team produced an hour-long documentary, "POWER ON TEXAS: The Digital Learning Revolution", that offers a firsthand look at the process of implementing a digital learning initiative, from planning and dealing with barriers to training and promising practices. It focuses on seven school districts—diverse in size and location, as well as academic and socioeconomic rankings. The diversity of schools included in the documentary provides all Texas school districts with relatable situations allowing them to identify with, draw inspiration from and re-purpose the efforts of the featured ISDs into their own digital learning programs. Additionally, the AMS Pictures creative team developed a companion resource guide, website POWERONTEXAS.com, marketing and presentation materials and other professional development tools that allow educators to take action. In addition to the campaign website the POWER ON message can be found on Texas's iTunes U portal, TEA's professional development site for educators Project Share and POWER ON TEXAS's social media vehicles allowing for targeted and far-reach easy access to the campaign. And our mission is only at the beginning stages POWERING ON. In partnership with Texas Education Agency we continue to move the revolution forward working to bring POWER ON TEXAS to the educators of Texas and beyond.
