As technology leaders, we are more poised than ever to offer guidance and support to all school and district conversations. So how do we stay relevant? How do we get that critical seat at the table for those all important discussions? How do we get other administrators to see us as more than the department that keeps the network running? As districts create a new narrative for how the learning landscape should look post pandemic, how you lead can future proof your role as the CTO. Join us in this session to review research, learn from colleagues, and hear new ideas concerning the CTO role and the work we do!
