Listed in strategic leadership resources are feature articles, presentations, webinars, and links focusing on leadership in the use of technology to impact learning. This includes IMS articles and leadership interviews in our Series on Learning Impact. In addition to posting articles we will be providing links to articles on other sites we think are compelling reading and recent presentations given by IMS and others.
