The move toward ubiquitous computing environments impacts everyone who works in a school or district. Administrators, teachers, CTOs, and instructional technology facilitators must collaborate to implement a large-scale plan. At the heart of the work to purchase hardware and software, develop infrastructure, and provide professional development, digital transition is about a common cultural belief that learning and teaching must look different when technology is used appropriately.
This interactive session examines the role of technology in teaching and learning as well as a research-based framework to guide schools and districts through their implementation plan. It is designed for all stakeholders in a school or district who are planning or implementing a technology-rich initiative. You will learn how to engage with other stakeholders from around the nation to empower your digital transition. At the end of the session, you will receive a webliography of free resources and an opportunity to join a free national cohort program!
