Is technology a barrier to learning in your district? We need to talk! For some, the problem of mobile devices is so severe that states and districts are banning cell phones from schools entirely. In some districts, the use of artificial intelligence tools has been banned, and websites blocked. Apple Watches are now banned in some districts, and the use of browsers on tablets and computers is “locked down” to prevent exploration outside of specific curriculum topics.

In this research-driven, provocative edLeader Panel, moderator Kevin Baird, Chairman at the Global Center for College & Career Readiness, leads viewers through best practices and engages attendees in discussion and debate.

A survey accompanying the edLeader Panel will be used as part of a national research study, published with a major university. All respondents who participate in the National Best Practices Survey – Device Management in Public K-12 Spaces will receive the research and will be invited to the research briefing when completed.

We know we have to do better—for our students. Engagement, distraction-free learning, and safe but cutting-edge technology integration are more essential now than ever before, while we balance the expectations of parents and communities. How do we provide “freedom within a framework”? We need your input, and national education leadership needs to hear your voice. Join us and help lead the conversation as new technology impacts our classrooms daily.

This recorded edLeader Panel is of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders.
