This learning track is designed for the Innovator Leaders within a district, those whose job it is to learn all about the newest in technology and then teach it to the teachers. This Learning Track is for those with job titles/roles such as Instructional Technology Information Specialist or Instructional Support Teacher. It is not for those with job titles/roles such as Technology Administrator.

Fewer sessions will be offered, with more time for participants to collaborate, share, and discuss new technology. Facilitators will be in each session to help guide conversation, but the primary output will be more dependent on participant engagement.

Please be sure to bring your own device with examples/resources stored on it so you can share how you use technology in your district.

Those who are exploring, researching, learning new / advanced technology first within their district and are often responsible for teaching the teachers (job titles / roles such as Instructional Technology Information Specialist or Instructional Support Teacher). This will be a collaborative session and heavily dependent on participant engagement. Participants should come prepared to share, learn and engage with peers from across the state.

Facilitated discussion will be held on the following topics:

  • Google and beyond
  • Assuming Leadership Roles with the District
  • SMART
  • Group Sharing New & Developing Technology
  • And other education applications
