13 David Penberg, Head of School, Innovate Manhattan Charter School, NYC


David Penberg has been involved in international teaching for many, many years. It was during one of his many stops that he and I coincided, and became good friends. Together, he as the Head of School and I as the Technology Director, transformed life at Benjamin Franklin International School in Barcelona a few years ago. Now he is the Head of School of a different kind of school; a charter school in the heart of New York City.

Innovate Manhattan is a middle school like none I’ve seen before. The entirety of their curriculum is web-based, and a student’s normal day is not your usual type of school day. Have a listen and David breaks it down in a very interesting way for us all to learn.
