On this edLeader Panel broadcast, Dr. Roland Hernandez, superintendent of Corpus Christi ISD, is joined by the district’s director of instructional technology, Cary Perales, and the district’s director of technology services, Marilyn Doughty, as featured guest panelists. The district leaders will share the strategies they use to lead their work across their district to assure a safe and effective digital landscape for all their students. The district’s “Tech2Teach” conference and digital magazine, which are used to showcase truly transformative learning, are two of the multiple approaches for leveraging technology innovation that will be shared. Dr. Jill Brown, CoSN director of professional learning, also joins the panel to share CoSN professional learning resources and recommendations for addressing digital equity.
