A professional association of district technology leaders is offering advice to school officials on how to transform schools using digital tools—by sharpening their focus on everything from teachers' professional development to community engagement.

"Seven Keys to Unlocking School Transformation With Digital Media," published by the Consortium for School Networking, is meant to help district officials avoid stumbles that can prevent technology from being used effectively. The consortium drew ideas from a group of school district leaders around the country, who are contributing authors to the document.

The authors point to key steps for districts implementing digital media, including involving all staff, parents, and students; aligning policies to support innovation; rethinking professional development; and getting school board support.
