Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

The purpose of the session is to share our district's journey and resources with other leaders who are unsure of the best possible ways to use technology-based funding to support student learning. Our presentation will demonstrate a proven plan that allows individual school choice for interactive classroom technologies that best meet teachers’ and students’ needs. From attending our poster session, participants can walk away with resources and ideas on how they can create their own plan, outline a panel evaluation process, facilitate initial and on-going staff training, as well as tips on new-hire introduction and support. We will know that our presentation is successful from reflecting on the questions and feedback that listeners provide us during our poster session. We will follow up with any of these participants if needed as well.
