Elements of Leadership for Leveraging Technology in Schools

How do we help our students learn today and prepare them for a rapidly changing world? A driving force behind this change is technology. It affects the way we communicate, the way we work, the way we live day-to-day. It also empowers every individual—and every learner—to create amazing things and make a difference in the world. But first, we need to raise the bar for what’s expected, and what’s possible, for learning with technology.

Building Community Engagement: Graduate of the Future

Embark on a collaborative and exploratory design process to reflect on the purpose of secondary school. Create a shareable artifact that conveys what you and your community believe a secondary school graduate should know and be able to do.
