Digital Curriculum Sustainability Discussions
Research Led Discussion with a Focus on the Next Stage in Transition: Analytics
As an ever-louder voice of data intrudes and transforms education at every level of our school district systems, leaders and teachers need understanding. Our 2018 Digital Transition Discussions bring that understanding with the latest information from around the country, including the market dynamics which are pressuring educators from every side.
Join us for important and practical professional development. Presentations through the day include:
- Keynote from LeiLani Cauthen: Ed-Tech Market Dynamics 2018 & Learning Analytics
- Leading: Having a “System” Mentality
- Tech Directing: Integration, Device and Network Impacts
- Teaching: New Roles, New Opportunities
What’s unique about these discussion events is they invariably bring up and tackle the tough questions about what’s happening inside the digital curriculum shift, and what that means for the actual teaching and learning.
The goal is to help every executive, principle, coach, instructional technology specialist and teacher through this challenging time in education transformation. During these one-day events we cover what “systems” are being used, the types of strategies and tactics and how to enhance the creative construction of digital learning resources between teachers, administrators and publishers.
The point of these free professional development days is to help all learners everywhere become more engaged in knowledge acquisition for life success.

“For me this event has been extremely valuable. I am in a transition and this has helped me understand the problems and assisted me to solve those problems. As an education leader decisions about technology and curriculum are difficult so a meeting like this with like-minded people really helps.”
