The future of digital education has arrived ahead of schedule. It's an excellent time to ensure your digital ecosystem can adapt to changing needs. The first step is to establish a safe, seamless, scalable, and agile foundation for plug-and-play integration. Next, enrich faculty and student experiences by implementing workflows for resource personalization, assessment, and real-time data. Finally, dramatically improve your ecosystem to support more effective recognition of diverse student achievement through new digital credentialing approaches. Hundreds of edtech suppliers contribute to this open ecosystem today, enabling your institution to do all of the above and more.

K-12 Leaders Perspectives: Moving to Remote Learning

  • Maurice Draggon, Senior Director of Digital Learning, Orange County Public Schools
  • Jeanne Imbriale, Director of Enterprise Applications, Baltimore County Public Schools
  • Tricia Kennedy, Executive Director of Instructional Development and Support, Gwinnett County Public Schools
  • Kevin A. Tashlein, Ed.D., Chief Strategy Officer, Gwinnett County Public Schools

IMS K-12 leaders stress the importance of starting with the foundation of a robust, interoperable ecosystem, proven instructional strategies, and a clear understanding of your district's strengths to effectively adjust to today's scale-up. Having a solid core includes a centralized interaction point and consistency that is a jumping-off point for agility to address these exceptional circumstances. Collaboration among teachers to exchange best practices and ideas is key as well as communication with parents and connecting stakeholders for that sense of community. There is a real sense that innovation can thrive through incremental improvement going forward. The feeling is that school will be different in the future because a greater understanding of flexibility is apparent. IMS provides the collaborative space to enable district leaders to learn from each other for the benefit of their district. The IMS technical work makes the technology work so much better together for the benefits of teachers and students.
