Webinar – Leadership as a Driving Force in Technology Adoption
Leadership at a school site can make or break a 1:1 initiative. Without guidance and support, teachers will flounder for direction, technology problems will increase to the point of frustration, and computers will go unused. A strong and effective leader will make a 1:1 initiative happen no matter what. We’ll look at the actions of a successful technology leader, and identify where the most successful leaders apply pressure to ensure the sustainability of their programs.
Discuss the importance of community engagement and learn how to develop a shared vision for your technology program. Explore many different strategies for convincing your local community and school board to fund technology initiatives.
