Learning new, helpful, and applicable tips is necessary for today’s K12 education space. Not only are these tips helpful for Technology Coaches and teachers, but district-level technology teams also seek to learn from each other in order to improve their technology team’s structure and effectiveness. That’s why we’ve partnered with Jake Standish, a district-level IT Program Manager at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools, for our upcoming webinar.
The Dyknow team has previously worked with Jake at NCTIES 2019 to learn how Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools uses technology to defeat student device distractions, how to effectively roll out a 1:1 student device program, and more recently had a conversation with him to learn how to maintain instructional consistency in a large district.

In her conversations talking to teachers, tech coaches, and administrators in the K12 space, Tierra understands the importance in providing a platform for these personas to connect, learn from each other, and ultimately improve the performance of their 1:1 student-device programs by making informed decisions.
Implementing a 1:1 student-device program is just the first step to successful device usage in K12 classrooms. Ensuring that these investments in learning technologies are maximized is the most important part of successful student device usage. We want to make sure district-level technology teams are able to effectively activate their learning technologies so that students and teachers get the most out of educational technology.
