Demonstrating Your Value to the Superintendent & the District
Thursday, March 20, 2014 (at the CoSN Annual Conference in Washington, DC)
Designed for district technology leaders, this event will demonstrate how CTO/CIOs can show value to their superintendent, board of education, and other district leaders. Hear from superintendents what they expect from technology leaders to make the digital leap. Hear how you can work to get a seat at the cabinet table and what to do when you get there. Be part of a conversation about what skills you need to succeed today and tomorrow. Explore how to provide value to the teaching and learning side of the house. Leave with tips for working with peers and strategies on how to be a key partner to your colleagues in the curriculum and finance office and, of course, the superintendent.

Building a Powerful Team for Blended Learning
When: Monday, June 30, March 20, 2014, 2:00-5:00
Location: Grand Ballroom D1, Omni CNN Center Hotel, Atlanta, GA (during ISTE Annual Conference)
Many believe that blended learning is perhaps the most significant opportunity for transforming learning in schools. Blended learning offers the potential for personalization and the opportunity to leverage virtual learning with face-to-face support and collaboration. Yet too often, silos in our districts can keep us from making this digital leap and fully realizing the potential for blended learning. This highly interactive forum will explore the roles of the district technology leader (CTO/CIO), the chief academic officer (CAO) and the superintendent in enabling blended learning. Hear from a panel of key district leaders who are breaking down the silos and working to realize the power of this innovation. Bring your questions, engage in the conversation and come away with tips and tools for building a powerful team.
