Leading learning in this new 2020-2021 school year comes with much more than the usual set of challenges for school leaders, educators, students and parents in K-12 education. AASA and CoSN came together and formed a partnership to assist school leaders in leading digital transformations.
Whether school districts are currently functioning in a traditional face-to-face teaching and learning setting, in a totally remote learning environment, or in some sort of hybrid model, maximizing technology tools for learning—as well as for school operations—has never been more critical.
In this edWebinar, Dr. Dan Domenech, Executive Director of AASA, and Keith Krueger, CEO of CoSN, are joined by Illinois Township High School District 214 Superintendent Dr. David Schuler. Together, they share lessons learned over the past school year and describe successful leadership strategies for navigating the constantly changing challenges districts and schools are currently facing. Resources and tools from AASA and CoSN are highlighted.
This recorded edWebinar will be of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.
