Learn how leaders, including superintendents, principals and teachers, can promote a vision of employing digital tools to engage students in rigorous work. Leaders should emphasize the importance of student use of digital tools to communicate, solve problems and apply content and skills. Leaders should model participation in professional growth and collaboration across job types and levels through Digital Playgrounds, blogs, wikis and/or Twitter. Leaders should implement supportive policies and procedures relating to internet filtering, use of mobile devices on campus and other topics. Leaders should provide greater access to technology through initiatives such as student use of a wireless network; the establishment of a digital learning management system that supports the blending of virtual and traditional instruction and the creation of a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure that allows staff and students to access the resources of the district network anytime, anyplace and from any device with browser capability.
