Technology Leadership Symposium 2011: Learning In The Cloud
Mark your calendars today! Administrators from ITSCO’s membership are invited to the Technology Leadership Symposium 2011: Learning In The Cloud. The conference will provide administrators experience with cloud computing technology for professional productivity as well as sessions exploring cloud based tools to enhance teaching and learning. All participants will receive an iPad, Asus Transformer, or MiFi package* and round tables will be held throughout the day for discussion with leaders in educational technology. New this year! You asked for it! We have added more space and new session strands geared specifically toward iPad/Transformer setup and integration.
Thanks to a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation (MHJF), ITSCO is excited to announce the Cloud Leadership Project. Through this project we are able to combine the Leadership Symposium with the Deep Dive Series! This series of professional development allows participants an opportunity to intensively examine the cloud-based technologies most salient to individual districts needs in a smaller and topic-focused learning setting. As an extension of the Leadership Symposium, all superintendents and principals from public schools may attend the Deep Dive series for no additional fee. Visit the Deep Dive page for more information, including specific class dates, times, and topics.
