Overview

In a flexible instructional environment, technology tools can make or break both efficiency and depth of learning. As leaders grapple with which tools to prioritize, our coaches have developed some key benchmarks to consider in their approach. To roll out technology successfully, leaders should start with the why, then examine the capacity of stakeholders and the context within which they’ll adopt. In coaching or a Virtual Workshop, participants will:

  • Define the instructional purposes of technology
  • Explore the common obstacles and options for tech uptake
  • Build and get peer feedback on their plan for rolling out tech

Audience

This workshop is great for any coach, principal, or district administrator looking for a shared space to reflect on what has worked and what new best practices they can integrate into their technology leadership. You can ‘roll out tech’ at any point in the year! Even with a tool you have used for years.
