The Tech & Learning team is in Denver for more than just ISTE. Today we begin our SchoolCIO Summit, where school leaders will gather to discuss, among other things, the important role a school district plays in implementing a community-wide district citizenship action plan. “Digital citizenship is about whole community awareness—including administrators, teachers, students, even extended staff,” says one of the presenters, Paul Sanfrancesco of Owen J. Roberts School District in Pottstown (PA) in a recent T&L article. Often, schools focus only on the students when it comes to developing district Internet protocols. Administrators sometimes realize too late that teachers, staff, parents, and school board members are also in need of training (see evidence from ColoradoConnecticut, and Los Angeles). How can school executives create clear processes and procedures that will keep their districts out of the headlines? SchoolCIO attendees are spending an intensive two days addressing this question with conversations with ISTE CEO Brian Lewis and Common Sense CEO James Steyer and hands-on workshops that will result in drafts of action plans that attendees can put into place in their districts—affecting more than one million students. Follow the conversation at #tltechlive.
