One Community, Five Voices: How Successful Digital Transformations Take Shape
Digital transformation in our school systems can’t happen without the support of an entire community. Administrators, principals, teachers, parents, students, and communities must work together in order to create and sustain a culture of change.
During the week of September 23, Discovery Education will be hosting five virtual events from around the country featuring five voices that are leading or supporting their districts' transition to digital resources.
This week-long series will talk about the challenges of garnering support for a digital transition, taking the first steps to set a digital transformation in motion, the key levers that are critical in driving the change necessary, how to best leverage the roles of parents and parent groups, and how to effectively enroll educators and staff to be champions and cheerleaders.
Join one or more of these sessions to hear directly from an administrator, a principal, a teacher, a parent, and a panel of students about their perspectives and experiences in moving their community from traditional to transformative.
