As teachers and students rely on an ever-growing compendium of online resources for instruction and assessment of learning, access to those resources both at school and at home is a growing essential component for student academic success.Students without home access to high-quality broadband connectivity are at a disadvantage, unable to realize the full power of digital learning. The lack of home internet access also negatively impacts school-to-parent communication and makes it more difficult for parents to support their children academically. The promise of anywhere, anytime learning for all students requires that schools and communities come together to solve the challenges of digital inequity and the widening disconnect that impacts not only students but parents and guardians as well.Given the current challenges involved with the efforts to continue teaching and learning in the midst of multiple school closures, the issues involved in leading digital transformation are now more urgent and relevant than ever. Our three superintendents share strategies they have implemented to lead learning for all students in their school districts during these most unprecedented and complex times.This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders. ClassLink ClassLink’s mission is to remove barriers between students and impactful education content.

However, accessibility impacts more than students. School leaders need to make certain that all information provided to the public, parents, guardians and staff is accessible for all stakeholders as well. In short, accessibility is a vital part of the education equation. Accessibility policies and practices must be front and center for everyone at all times. Additionally, it is equally important that school leaders make their commitment to accessibility highly vocal and visible. Continued attention and ongoing modifications are prerequisites when it comes to assuring accessibility for all.In this edWeb podcast, three superintendents share how they are leading the complex issues involved in ensuring accessibility for all within their school districts. Five compelling steps for ensuring accessibility will be articulated and illustrated with real-world examples of successful strategies that have been used to address accessibility among all school district stakeholders.This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.ClassLink ClassLink’s mission is to remove barriers between students and impactful education content.

Successfully leading digital transformations within rural school districts has a tremendous impact on our nation as a whole.Technology planning and investments can typically be quite complicated. Often the challenges begin almost from the moment a district begins to consider next steps in a comprehensive technology plan. With tight budgets and multiple stakeholders involved, each with valid concerns, along with the constant evolution of technology tools and resources, a framework for evaluating technology initiatives and guidelines for arriving at well-supported decisions are more important than ever before.Listen to this edWeb podcast with three tech-savvy superintendents, from three different states, as they share how they lead their districts in creating technology plans that align priorities, costs, and outcomes and also assure that the ability to sustain technology initiatives over time is part of the planning process. Each superintendent explains their strategies and imparts their expertise on the total cost of ownership, student outcomes, budget management, and the value of investment. Tools and resources to evaluate, rethink and strengthen technology planning and decision making are shared.Given the current challenges involved with the efforts to continue teaching and learning in the midst of multiple school closures, the issues involved in school districts’ strategic technology planning are now more urgent and relevant than ever.

This edWeb podcast is sponsored by ClassLink and co-hosted by CoSN and edWeb.net.The webinar recording can be accessed here.In today’s world of ubiquitous use of technology, we still hear about school districts that move forward with 1:1 technology programs without thoroughly considering nor reflecting on the “why” behind that decision. Sometimes the reason may be the growing realization that students are digital natives and seem to prefer learning with technology, or it may be a sense of “peer pressure” to match a neighboring district’s technology program. Fulfilling a mandate from the local school board can also be the motivation behind a district’s launch of a 1:1 initiative. Regardless of the motivation, a district must create and own a comprehensive shared vision for implementing any technology program. Without that essential collaborative planning process, the result may be an effort that lacks the desired impact or worse, simply fails miserably.In this edWeb podcast, hear from three superintendents who are recognized as technology leaders in their field. They share what it takes to successfully deploy, implement and sustain a commitment to digital learning. Each will share the “why” behind their successful technology initiatives.This edWeb podcast is of particular value to school superintendents, K-12 school and district leaders, and aspiring leaders.ClassLink ClassLink’s mission is to remove barriers between students and impactful education content.

Today technology is an essential tool for planning, creating, delivering, and evaluating successful instruction. Online assessments are becoming routine within many school settings and are used not solely for summative or high-stakes testing, but also for formative measures of learning as well. It takes a coordinated leadership team effort among multiple district-level departments to execute online assessments successfully.Listen to this edWeb podcast conversation as three members of the district leadership team from Hampton Township School District in Pennsylvania—including the superintendent, the director of curriculum, instruction and assessment, and the director of technology—share how they collaborate and coordinate their work in order to effectively lead the implementation and use of online assessments within the schools in their district.

Now, more than ever, school networks must serve students and teachers both inside and outside the classroom, anywhere and anytime. Innovative technologies, more access to the internet, and powerful communication, creation, and collaboration tools are driving instructional transformation. Rapid change is increasing the demand for greater network capacity and reliability.
