Tactic - an action or strategy carefully planned to achieve a specific end.
Strong leadership is essential to systemic, sustainable change in education. School leaders need to be on the forefront of digital transformations to ensure that there is a sustained focus on measurable learning and engagement outcomes.

Tactics that integrate technology with purpose through quality pedagogical techniques for digital learning
Tactics that empower students to take ownership of their learning in ways that are personalized and individualized
