As we move deeper into the digital age, schools are increasingly more concerned about equipping students with 21st century skills, yet in many cases the school culture does not support modern education. While some school leaders have fully embraced technology, many still find it intimidating, overwhelming, or simply fluff. Reluctant leaders limit technology use to basic routine tasks and have no clear understanding of how to harness its power or how it impacts student learning. In other words, they don’t know what they don’t know.

To reach a transformation of traditional classrooms into modern learning environments, leadership is the #1 priority. Requiring teachers to attend professional development, collaborate, and take risks does not ensure capacity building or sustainability over time unless leaders facilitate and model the behavior they expect in others.

In this session we will discuss practical, effective strategies that technology-leading school administrators can use to model, inspire, influence, and encourage innovation, and ensure buy-in.
