Brief Session Description: Every CIO has that fear...that the technology purchased to transform learning won't be used correctly or maybe even not at all. Come hear how Dysart Unified School District created a process to ensure every technology purchase is preceded by a plan aligned with school and district goals. In Dysart, we are striving to create personalized learning environments. Through the use of Technology Innovation Plans (TIPs) we are aligning every technology purchase with our strategic plan and site-based continuous improvement process. Each year, school sites and departments are asked to create a Technology Plan detailing their goals for learning and efficiency, secure and equitable accessibility of technology, and plans for evaluation of progress towards goals. Each technology plan complements the school or department CIP and is aligned with the district strategic plan and no technology is purchased without one!
