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 (IT) as part of a technology ecosystem.
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 vision & goals
- Develop a strategic plan
- Measure progress
- Develop learning outcomes
- Plan infrastructure
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.
