Effectively leveraging tech to advance teaching and learning is one of the most critical issues facing today’s district-level leaders. Teachers and students need knowledgeable advocates who understand what it takes to be a technology leader. ISTE recognizes this critical role and has designed the ISTE Digital Leadership Summit with learning experiences featuring a variety of expert speakers and formats, meaningful conversations with industry leaders, and the ISTE Standards and Essential Conditions as the framework.
Keynote Manoush Zomorodi
Saturday, January 19, lunch
Manoush Zomorodi is the author of Bored and Brilliant and co-founder of Stable Genius Productions, a woman-led media company. In 2012, Zomorodi created, hosted and was managing editor of “Note to Self,” a podcast from WNYC Studios for “anyone trying to preserve their humanity in the digital age.” In 2015, Zomorodi led tens of thousands of listeners through an experiment to help them unplug from their devices, get bored, jump-start their creativity and change their lives. Her book, Bored and Brilliant: How Spacing Out Can Unlock Your Most Productive and Creative Self, builds on that experiment to demonstrate how to rethink our gadget use to live better and smarter in the new digital ecosystem. She’ll be joining us for a talk on human skills for digital natives, followed by a conversation-style Q&A.
