As educators ready for ISTE, the biggest edtech conference in the United States, Tech & Learning invites district leaders to discuss not just innovation in schools, but how to sustain and scale this innovation across districts of all sizes. During the June 2017 Tech & Learning Leadership Summit in San Antonio, attendees will discuss innovative models of schooling, tech breakthroughs that will drive innovation, and what schools are doing to create the next generation of innovators. Participants will share best practices from their districts, analyze models that work, and discuss the challenges faced by district leaders as they work to support the diverse needs of their communities.
In addition to examining this theme, attendees will have the opportunity to suggest topics for small group discussions that they will attend during the second day of the conference. Topics range from data privacy to professional learning, 1:1 models to facilitating change. Tech & Learning Leader Summit participants are both teachers and learners at these events, sharing their challenges and successes with their peers, brainstorming solutions to a variety of challenges, building a personal learning network of colleagues they can turn to for counsel throughout the year, and walking away with action items they can put into place in their districts.
