Providing leadership in educational technology can be one of the biggest challenges faced by a school administrator.
21st century leaders must have a broad view of technology across the schools they lead. They must consider the big picture that includes not only classroom instruction but also issues related to policy and advocacy.
It is with these issues in mind that the Virginia Society for Technology in Education presents the third annual Educational Technology Leadership Institute (ETLI) accompanied by two days of sessions at the Annual Technology in Education Conference, with presentations focusing on Educational Technology Leadership issues.
Concurrent sessions will focus on such topics important to an educational technology leader, covering advocacy, planning, implementation and professional development. This institute targets timely needs of this specific consituency group while providing a segway into your attendance at the remaining Annual Technology in Education Conference sessions.
Plan for a day of concurrent sessions, peer networking, a keynote presentation during a sit-down lunch, and ending with the opportunity to visit up to 100 vendor exhibits. All in one day.
Make plans now to attend the Institute. Because we know how difficult it is for administrators to be away from their buildings, the Institute is scheduled for a Sunday. However, Institute participants who attend the Conference will receive 2 more full days of leadership presentations.
