Situation: Effective use of technology is essential for learning and teaching in a global, digital age.
Join us for a discussion on technology leadership and providing a vision and a plan for your schools.
Panel discussion will involve technology directors and technology "coaches" from RISTE member schools and districts.
Technology is at the core of virtually every aspect of our daily lives and work, and we must leverage it to provide engaging and powerful learning experiences and content, as well as resources and assessments that measure student achievement in more complete, authentic, and meaningful ways.
Technology based learning and assessment systems will be pivotal in improving student learning and generating data that can be used to continuously improve the education system at all levels. (National Education Technology Plan, 2010).
When teachers do not effectively integrate all aspects of technology in the educational process, today’s students are not fully engaged and miss out on authentic learning experiences emphasizing collaboration, creativity, and innovation. This leads to students who are unprepared to be productive digital-age citizens and participants in the highly competitive, global, digital workplace.
