Theme: Pre-ISTE Summit: A District-Level Look at Innovation in K-12


Dates: June 23-24, 2017


Location:  The St. Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, TX


As educators ready for ISTE, the biggest edtech conference in the United States, Tech & Learning invites district leaders to discuss not just innovation in schools, but how to sustain and scale this innovation across districts of all sizes. During the June 2017 Tech Learning Leader Summit in San Antonio, attendees will discuss innovative models of schooling, tech breakthroughs that will drive innovation, and what schools are doing to create the next generation of innovators. Participants will share best practices from their districts, analyze models that work, and discuss the challenges faced by district leaders as they work to support the diverse needs of their communities.


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.




Nashville, TN



Theme: Bridging the Equity Gap with Innovative Connections


Dates: October 6-7, 2017


Location:  Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center, Nashville, TN


Most school leaders know that for the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) to be successful, every student must be connected both at school and at home. School districts of all sizes and income levels face barriers to this goal. Low-income districts face economic challenges, rural schools struggle to connect students across vast distances, and even wealthy schools have to develop creative infrastructure funding since they often can’t take advantage of e-rate benefits.  The Fall 2017 Tech Learning Leader Summit will return to this crucial topic, exploring these challenges and focusing on innovative solutions that attendees can implement in their districts to get every student connected and close the equity gap.
