A 2015 survey of district IT leaders by the Consortium for School Networking found that over half believe that their districts’ instructional materials would transition to digital to a “substantial” extent over the next three years*. How can curriculum, software and hardware developers help districts with the digital transition and what do districts expect from their vendors?
Our next webinar will answer these questions and more! Former Executive Director for Educational Technology in the Klein Independent School District (TX) Ann McMullan will:
- Provide a brief history and current status of how schools and districts look to leverage technology tools for learning.
- Review the full scope of what it takes to implement technology for learning initiatives in K-12 schools and school systems.
- Share what savvy vendors must know and do to assure their school clients are successful in implementing their digital learning tools.
- This webinar will provide you with strategic insight for your sales, marketing, customer service, and product development plans.
