For any tech initiative to not just survive but thrive, IT and curriculum leaders must share the same goals. Tech & Learning Live Boston will focus on the question: “Curriculum & IT: Can This Marriage Be Saved?”. This one-day conference for school leaders will address this issue through workshops, demonstrations, and panel discussions that can help both sides better understand each other’s challenges, improve collaboration, and support a district’s instructional goals through powerful uses of technology.

In a recent report by Innovative Educator Lisa Nielsen’s The Innovative Educator, she writes, “Successful adoption of technology into the curriculum requires a happy marriage between curriculum and technology. There are four key components that can lead to a successful marriage: active engagement, group participation, frequent interaction and feedback, and connection to real-world experts. The key to staying out of divorce court is remembering that it’s not about technology. It’s about learning. These are not tech programs. They are learning programs. We don’t want tech committees. We want learning committees. (Read Lisa’s full report HERE.)

At Tech & Learning Live Boston, you won’t just dive into this question through high-level conversations with your peers. You’ll walk away with specific strategies and techniques you can put into action right away to help your school’s marriage between curriculum and IT not just survive, but thrive.

Highlights of the day include:
  • Keynote by the always-entertaining Carl Hooker: Becoming a Marriage Counselor for IT & Curriculum
  • Choose from three tracks -- curriculum, tech, and leadership -- where you can discuss the challenges of your specific role ad brainstorm with your colleagues.  
  • Learn about and test drive some of the latest edtech tools for K-12 through new hands-on workshops & demonstrations.
  • In the closing session where we’ll bring it all together: what lessons have you learned today and how can you better collaborate with all school communities? What action items can you put into place right away, and what longer-term plans can help your school improve teaching and learning through better collaboration?
  • Plus: plenty of opportunities to network with your peers.
