COVID demanded technology infrastructure be leveraged to support teaching and learning in remote environments. Overnight, technology decisions were executed to support teaching and learning opportunities from home. The Center on Inclusive Technology in Education Systems (CITES) believes that 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. This session will discuss the whys and hows of inclusive technology leadership and examine key leadership practices and district tools that support the design of education technology systems of the future.
