NCAIS INNOVATE 2013: Friday, February 22 at St. David’s School (Raleigh, NC)
MAKE THE CONNECTION!
Learning and leading in a digital world does not happen in isolation. Education today is all about making connections. . . connections with students, with colleagues, and with the world. This is an “Aha” moment in education . . . we have to begin to connect the resources and tools that the digital world provides with the learning that takes place in our classroom. Connectivity is means by which we can transform education and make our schools relevant and sustainable in the 21st Century and beyond. NCAIS heads of school, academic leaders, teachers, and technology professionals are invited to join the dialogue as we connect and learn from each other. Breakout tracks include administration and leadership, classroom pedagogy, instructional technology and network administration.
