Future Ready Leadership Is​ ​Delicious​ Ambiguity
The story of school is no longer as clear as it used to be, but that doesn't mean we can't embrace the ambiguity and use it to our advantage in the future. Join us for a holistic and pragmatic look at pedagogy, society, and the transformational technology shift of today. This one hour session aspires to inspire teachers, administrators, and IT leaders that despite national rhetoric (test scores, standards, tech integration, cyberbullying, etc.), their role in society is more valuable than ever before. Bring your device and a penchant to work through some empowering leadership strategies that you can use to build a vision of delicious ambiguity in your schools.
