PD opportunity: Technology District Readiness

The growing concept of Michigan’s Anytime, Anywhere, Any Place learning and other state and local initiatives are changing the way we fund and deliver technology to our students.
Will you, your technology department, and school be ready?

Consider the fact that beginning with the 2014-15 school year, our Michigan will implement the Smarter Balanced assessments. These assessments are scheduled to replace the MEAP and MME for both math and ELA. These assessments are entirely online.
Will you, your technology department, and school be ready?

The MSBO Technology Planning Sub-Committee along with Michigan Department of Education (MDE) has created this workshop designed to help you be an effective technology leader. Take your district to the next level.

March 26, 2012 • Lansing Community College – West Campus
8:45 am- 4:00 pm

Will you be prepared for:
  • Funding Based on Educational Performance: Powered by Technology and Assessments Online;
  • Software Consolidation;
  • Moving from Static Computers and Labs to 1:1 Programs; and
  • Wireless Campuses?
As a technology leader, ask yourself these three questions:
  • Does your district have a plan for implementing/upgrading supporting, purchasing and sustaining student technology access anytime, anywhere, and at any place (even beyond the school district walls?)
  • Are you a part of your school’s curriculum improvement efforts?
  • Are you as an effective leader as you can be?
A detailed agenda is posted on the MIEM website.
