It's not often that Google, Microsoft and Apple all agree on something, but they all agree on the seven elements that must be addressed in your technology plans. We'll unpack the elements and give you tools and frameworks for assessing your competence in these areas.

Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The participant will have the opportunity to discover the 7 essential elements. They will also have the opportunity to learn about a number of tools and frameworks they can use to assess their effective use of these seven elements.

Worksheets will be provided with links and summaries to resources such as the:
* ISTE lead and transform diagnostic tool (http://www.iste.org/standards/lead-transform/diagnostic-tool)
* The Microsoft 21CLD materials https://education.microsoft.com/GetTrained/21CLD-1)
* Apples 8 elements https://itunes.apple.com/au/book/eight-elements-for-success/id1079985263
* Google transformation centre https://edutransformationcenter.withgoogle.com/
* Future Ready Schools resources (http://futureready.org/)
* and more

Participants will have the opportunity to explore a particular element in depth with us if they wish and leave with examples of how other schools and districts have approached that element.

It is our desire that participants will leave the poster session having an understanding of what the 7 elements are, and have some tools and frameworks to gather data and then resources to explore to help them improve in one or more of these areas.

Outline

We will share the 7 essential elements that Google, Apple and Microsoft all agree must be in a technology plan. We will also share frameworks and tools that can be used to assess how a school or district is performing in each of these areas.
Participants will also have a package of resources, as listed in the purpose section, where they can engage with content and advice from various organisations that will enable them to enact an improvement plan.
