In addition to the sessions for teachers and IT managers I mentioned earlier today, we're also running early-start sessions for school leaders in the next few weeks. They are a fast-paced 90 minute look at some of the key strategic opportunities and issues that schools are facing right now with technology adoption. They are being run by my colleague Travis Smith, who is an informed and entertaining speaker, so I can guarantee that it will be thought-provoking, as well as being a good investment of time. And because it finishes by 9:30, it's not going to eat significantly into the school day.
(Given the amount of discussion (and hype?) around BYOD, I've always appreciated Travis for his grounded views on BYOD in schools, and the need to stay absolutely focused on the teaching and learning, rather than the device strategy itself)
It's being hosted at the Microsoft offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, and the details are below:
