IT staff needs to understand the realities of classroom instructional goals and educators need to be aware of the requirements and limitations of securing and supporting all technology tools used within the educational environment. In this fast-paced webinar two educators with extensive curricular and IT backgrounds will share tips, tricks, processes and approaches to enhancing collaboration and communication between IT department personnel and the instructional “side” of a school district. There is no one-size-fits-all approach, but investigating the many successful approaches to enhance collaboration and communication will help educators from all sides of the fence to improve and support technology integration in the classroom.
