Leadership in Inclusive Technology Systems
Effective technology leadership promotes the development of a balanced and inclusive technology infrastructure that examines assistive technology (AT), educational technology (EdTech), and information technology (InfoTech) as part of a technology ecosystem.
The Center for Inclusive Technology in Education Systems (CITES) has utilized a design-thinking process, in partnership with local districts, to refine a set of leadership practices that enhance the development of a balanced and inclusive technology infrastructure.
CITES leadership practices include:
- Create a community-wide vision and aligned goals.
- Develop a strategic technology implementation plan.
- Measure progress for continuous improvement.
- Develop clear outcomes for professional learning.
- Take ownership of infrastructure development.
How do district leaders create an inclusive technology ecosystem?
Learn how to systematically begin the process of creating and sustaining an inclusive technology ecosystem using the CITES Framework. The CITES leadership practices can be approached step by step, or as a “just-in-time” resource that focuses on specific areas most needed in the district.
