Tools for Empowering 21st Century Education Leaders

Creating a 21st Century learning environment that is student centered requires new visions and meaningful collaboration. How do superintendents and principals play an active part in setting the vision in your district and school and enabling a digital conversion? Of all the challenges you face as an education leader, technology leadership may be the one that leaves you feeling the most unprepared, uncertain, and vulnerable.  You are not alone and there is help available from the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN).  In this session we will explore the resources included in the Revised Superintendents Toolkit developed by the CoSN.  Learn more about the Teaming for Transformation initiative that focuses on Leading a Digital Conversion for Student Learning.
