• Lead, Plan, Implement, and Evaluate Digital Integration


     

    Comprehension in digital integration can lead to better evaluation of classroom instruction. Through the Digital Leadership Academy, school leaders go through three intersections of technology and school leadership: learning how to better use digital tools, the transformation of content delivery to staff, and preparing to become a digital leader (Mcleod, Bathon, & Richardson, 2011).

    School leaders can benefit from unique learning opportunities that furnish them with the knowledge to bridge the connection between student learning and digital integration. Through the Digital Leadership Academy, school leaders work to understand and internalize what is required of them to empower digital integration at their schools (Hannafin, 2008). Building technology leadership capacity has the potential to elicit the greatest impact when compared with the impact of learning how to use digital tools or how to deliver content digitally (Mcleod, Bathon, & Richardson, 2011).

    Educational Technology is proud to offer this program to school administrators in Fort Worth ISD. The theme of the academy is “Lead, Plan, Implement, and Evaluate Digital Integration”. Classes are online, begin in June, and will run throughout the 2020-2021 school year.
