The Leadership Landscape Has Changed for Administrators

Posted by Deborah Mersino, Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, ISTE

Congrats to Scott McLeod, who has deemed today, August 15, 2012, “Leadership Day 12” in honor of his game-changing Dangerously Irrelevant blog’s six-year anniversary and Connected Educator Month.

Scott—and all of you participating in #leadershipday12—are paving the way for our students and our collective futures. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) applauds your work, your passion, and your commitment to improving education.  Whether you’re a long-time ISTE loyalist or someone who has never heard of our association, you are leading.

But the leadership landscape is ever-changing for administrators. Superintendents, assistant superintendents, CTOs, CBOs, CIOs, curriculum leaders, and technology coordinators are facing a host of challenges in this digital age. To help you and other leaders find tangible solutions to today’s biggest problems, the ISTE Leadership Forum, Oct. 21−23,in Indianapolis will address how to:

  • Maximize your tech investment and stretch your dollars.
  • Leverage social media for instruction and establish a social media policy.
  • Employ technology to meet the Common Core.
  • Support and motivate your staff to embrace new strategies.
  • Engage tech tools to assist with parent communication and involvement.

Registration is now open.

At ISTE, we continue to hear how leading educators often feel like an island in a sea of conformists. This is your opportunity to help others shift. Talk to your fellow superintendents about the ISTE Leadership Forum. Suggest that other principals in your district attend. Get your CTO or curriculum director signed up and plan to attend with them. Bring the whole team. You will be inspired. Your colleagues will thank you.

Sign up today, take advantage of early-bird savings, and start off the school year knowing you have a clear map to navigate the changing landscape.
