Beyond Pockets of Excellence: How the Best Leaders Empower School-Wide Transformations

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Devices don't transform learning, people do. In nearly ever school, the introduction of a new device inspires individual teachers with extraordinary initiative and creativity to create pockets of excellence in their own classrooms. There are only a handful of schools, however, where new devices lead to systematic changes in student learning experiences. In these places, school and district leaders play a vital role in helping pockets of excellence scale to school-wide transformations. In this session, we'll explore the strategies that the best school leaders use to empower their teachers and students to rethink teaching and learning in a networked age.
