In the K-12 environment Teaching and Learning and IT, departments have historically been separate silos that often are not on the same page. That may have worked early on when IT was building infrastructure and Teaching and Learning was still adopting textbooks, but those days are behind us and districts understand their success will rely on Teaching and Learning and IT coming together sharing common instructional goals. Districts will share their stories of best practices, learning approaches, professional development, culture, and unified IT systems, in a small setting that will allow for collaboration among the leaders of Arizona schools.
