Theme: Curriculum & Tech: Can This Marriage Be Saved?


Dates: Thursday and Friday, December 7-8


Location:  The Camby Hotel, Phoenix, AZ


For any tech initiative to not just survive but thrive, IT and curriculum leaders must share the same goals. It’s easy to say that an educational vision should drive everything we do with technology in schools but far harder to ensure that the organizational structure, communication channels and other elements are in place to make the marriage between technology and learning a successful one. The December T&L Leadership Summit will address this issue through panels and discussions that can help both sides better understand each other’s challenges, improve collaboration, and support a district’s instructional goals through powerful uses of technology.


In addition to examining this theme, attendees will have the opportunity to suggest topics for small group discussions that they will attend during the second day of the conference. Topics range from data privacy to professional learning, 1:1 models to facilitating change. Tech Learning Leader Summit participants are both teachers and learners at these events, sharing their challenges and successes with their peers, brainstorming solutions to a variety of challenges, building a personal learning network of colleagues they can turn to for counsel throughout the year, and walking away with action items they can put into place in their districts.
