Implementing a Digital Transformation Strategy for Educational Improvement

Wednesday, March 14
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Room: Dupont
Brief Session Description: Student-centered learning is achievable when technology works together to ease the way. K-12 districts are establishing technology ecosystems that allow for flexibility and choice, in selecting the digital tools and learning resources that educators want and students need, and enabling them to work together seamlessly. Getting to this pervasive ecosystem requires leadership, collaboration, and a strategy for how to apply technology at scale to improve and personalize instruction without costly customized integrations of online content and resources. Learn what leaders and innovators in K-12 are doing to achieve their educational objectives by moving from a glut of digital tools operating in silos to an educational technology ecosystem that allows educators to implement new instructional strategies and supports the evolution to next-generation personalized learning.
Presenters: Rob Abel, IMS Global Learning Consortium, Chief Executive Officer; Lenny Schad, Houston Independent School District (Texas), Chief Technology Officer; Lloyd Brown, Baltimore County Public Schools, Executive Director of Information Technology; Pete Just, Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, Chief Technology Officer
