Technology has become a huge part of the classroom but, unfortunately, it is not always used effectively. Schools, districts, and even countries all seem to be “recreating the wheel” - implementing mobile deployments and making the same mistakes as others. More “cross-pollination” and sharing of best practices is essential for school districts to create a learning initiative that leads to success.
iSchool Initiative and Cisco have partnered to host twelve regional leadership events. These events are focused on assisting districts to move to a successful 1:1 or BYOD technology program. This program is designed for principals, superintendents, IT staff, instructional faculty, CTO’s, and anyone else interested in maximizing your organization’s technology potential.
Attendees will hear from thought leaders in the space and also have a chance to collaborate and share best practices with their peers.
