Accelerating Change in Rural Districts
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM: Breakout
Room: Skyline II (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Concurrent Session - 60 Minutes
Track: Rural District
Brief Session Description: Taking the digital leap is particularly challenging in rural districts that have limited resources, limited access to broad technical expertise, and limited access to high quality professional development. CoSN has partnered with Team4Tech, a non-profit organization that provides immersive service learning to technology professionals to improve the quality of education among other places, in school districts, and corporate volunteers from PureStorage and VMWare to offer professional development to teachers and support for technology leaders in accelerating their digital leap. Learn how these engagements had a profound impact on rural districts and their staff.
