#IDEACon: Leadership In A Digital Age
Thursday, February 27, 8:00 am • #IDEACon •Schaumburg, IL
Session Description: Leadership manifests itself in many ways. Relationships and how we support the people around us as well as building consensus around a vision are critical. This is frequently discussed and examined. The policies we set and the way that we budget are equally as important manifestations of leadership. Technology-rich learning environments bring new challenges to learners, teachers, and administrators. This generates a need to revisit existing policies, practices, and procedures, and often to create new policies, practices, and procedures — both in and out of the classroom. Join Jeff Mao for a pragmatic exploration of technology-related policies, practices, and procedures in light of the ever-changing digital landscape and discover when to ignore conventional wisdom. Learn why BYOD schools should not provide school-purchased devices to low income families, and why device insurance may not be in your best interest.
