Making the Commitment Webinar Highlights
- Rob Abel (IMS Global) shared an overview of IMS Global’s K-12 Digital Learning Revolution Program and provided details on what is required to get started with the program and why implementing the program will impact teaching and learning in-12 districts.
- Tony Hunter (Broward County Schools) discussed the role all stakeholders play as a district starts to transform their digital teaching and learning environment. Tony stressed that technology rollouts need to be tied to instructional-focused initiatives; when teachers see the value in what the district is doing and the potential learning impact it will have on their students, they will be more inclined to support and trust the commitments that are being made.
This was the first webinar in the K-12 Digital Learning Revolution series for K-12 district curriculum and technology leaders.
In this series, you will hear from educational leaders at school districts across the U.S. that are revolutionizing their district’s digital learning initiatives based on open, plug-and-play technologies and integrated curriculum architecture that is supported by hundreds of providers of innovative digital resources, tools, and environments.
