Purpose & objective
Effective instruction, while integrating emerging education technology, relies on the support and understanding of the district's IT leadership. When students have robust access to technology and require more freedom in the use of that technology and in access to the internet, IT departments face new challenges to keeping the network safe and stable while still allowing for this critical instructional shift. Learn from educators, CTOs, thought leaders, and administrators about the support they need to teach in this model and learn from CTOs about the ways their roles have changed.
This moderated panel discussion will include live interaction via twitter.
