With the technology demands of Common Core assessments and the growing popularity of blended learning, the issue of ed-tech leadership has become a high profile topic. Today’s most successful district leaders are increasing the reach and use of technology in education, from developing 1-to-1 computing programs to ensuring students have access to high-speed Internet connections both in school and at home.
Education Week’s Leaders to Learn From, the first of what will be an annual report, spotlights several district leaders who developed innovative solutions using technology. And the most recent issue of Digital Directions also highlights the role of ed-tech leaders in an increasingly complex education marketplace.
As a follow up to these stories, Education Week is holding a free webinar this Friday, April 5, from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. ET to give educators a better sense of the evolving issues emerging around ed-tech leadership.
Join special guests Dennis Stockdale, superintendent of Garrett-Keyser-Butler Community School District in Garrett, Ind., and Sarah Trimble-Oliver, director of information technology for the Cincinnati Public Schools, as they discuss the best practices for incorporating digital resources into the curriculum, for using data to personalize learning, and for integrating high-tech strategies to raise student achievement.
The webinar will be moderated by Education Week Digital Directions Senior Writer Michelle R. Davis. We encourage you to join the discussion.
