Maximizing technology for learning has never been more critical than it is today. Administrators, teachers, students and parents depend on a broad spectrum of technology tools to assure effective learning for all. Success in navigating the transition to virtual classrooms is one that requires specific skill sets for everyone involved.

This edWebinar features a lively, interactive discussion with the superintendent of Wake County Public School System in North Carolina and the district’s Chief Technology Officer along with the district’s Senior Director of Digital Learning and Libraries. Together they share the collaborative leadership work they employ to assure that professional learning experiences within the Wake County Public School System are effective in improving instructional practice in today’s virtual learning environments as well as inside traditional school classrooms.

Among the strategies they will share is how they go about engaging teachers in sustained social learning with mentors and peers. They will also describe the approaches Wake County Public School System uses to focus not only on specific technology tools but also impactful changes in pedagogy to support the sustained, effective use of technology for learning.

edWebinar participants will have an opportunity to engage with the panelists and learn how to apply the strategies shared within their own school settings. This edWebinar will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
