Room: Atrium Ballroom (Hilton Portland Downtown)
Format: Spotlight Session
Track: Spotlight Session
Brief Session Description: Imagine a world where all students are immersed in high-quality learning experiences. Schools are equipped with the knowledge and infrastructure to nurture the skills students need to achieve their goals and adapt to new contexts. As schools actively address challenges exacerbated by the rise of technology, they may be in better positions to take advantage of real-world trends, such as the growing emphasis on adopting data-driven practices and creating outstanding user experiences in digital spaces. This session marks the release of the latest report in CoSN's Driving K-12 Innovation series, 2019 Accelerators, focused on the megatrends that drive the needs and skills expected of learners and practitioners. Explore findings from the new publication, designed to help school leaders understand the evolving landscape of Accelerators and how they can be effectively leveraged via leadership efforts and digital strategies. The presenters will also share exemplars of the Accelerators in action.
