Is this you?

Have you ever embarked on an initiative that you were excited about but didn't get the results you wanted? Or did the initiative just stop? Did you wonder why?

What about in the realm of technology? How do you know if all the investments in educational technology that your school has been making are working?

Do any of the following apply to you or your district?
  • You're using technology in your school but haven't defined to what end.
  • You have money for hardware but no plan.
  • There are pockets of excellence in your district but taking them to scale is elusive.
  • You'd like to implement systems for improvement
  • Your technology committee is focused on purchases and not a vision.
  • There's lots of dabbling with technology in your district but no thread to link the outcomes
  • You'd like to know if the programs you have in place are making a difference.

Today is about answering these questions together. We will use this space to help us capture our conversations, curate and collect best practices and resources that can guide our efforts to helping our students and stake holders embrace the true possibilities and potential these new tools and platforms have for learning and leading.

We have and exciting and full agenda planned, and I could not be more honored or excited to begin this crucial conversation. The resources you need for our work throughout the day are located below. This is OUR day, so feel free at anytime to add your own ideas, links and needed resources.
