Dr. Adam Phyall, Newton County School System

Adam Antoine Phyall II, Ed.D., is the director of technology and media services for the Newton County School System in Georgia where he’s focused on helping teachers put technology in the hands of students to keep them engaged in rigorous learning. Since getting his first laptop in college, Phyall has been hooked on the fantastic things technology can add to learning. Early in his teaching career, Phyall had students create videos and podcasts to explain advanced science concepts. Once he saw the impact technology had on learning in his classroom, he began to share his activities and strategies with peers. This led Phyall to work as a building instructional technology leader, technology facilitator, and then take on his current role as a tech director. Throughout his career, Phyall has worked extensively with Title I and urban schools to improve technology integration for economically disadvantaged students. He has developed mobile learning plans for school districts in Georgia and Missouri that have led to 1:1 device initiatives. His philosophy on teaching is, “If you’re having fun teaching it, then your students will have fun learning it.”
