The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®) today unveiled the Lead & Transform movement. Debuting at ISTE 2014, this new initiative aims to provide a comprehensive roadmap and professional learning opportunities to guide education leaders through the transition to technology-rich and standards-ready learning environments.

Based upon ISTE's Essential Conditions, the 14 critical elements for effective technology integration, the Lead & Transform Diagnostic tool provides superintendents, CTOs, CIOs, school leaders and other decision-makers with a framework for planning and building a successful system wide initiative. Users get free recommendations immediately and then can work with ISTE experts on customized strategies to help leverage their strengths and identify opportunities for growth. The Lead & Transform Resource Portal features a growing collection of tools and resources to support planning, implementation and reflection and refinement of technology integration.

In a special session, "Rethink Learning with the Lead & Transform Movement," on Tuesday, July 1, from 10:15-11:15 am, ISTE CIO Wendy Drexler will give participants an overview of the new resource for helping school and district leaders plan, build and implement effective system wide technology transition plans.
