Future Ready Leaders Project – A First Look
The Future Ready Leaders project links superintendents to research on effective practice through video to help them lead the transition to 21st century learning environments. The American Institutes for Research (AIR), in partnership with the United States Department of Education Office of Educational Technology (OET), is designing, developing, and studying an online tool that provides district leaders with a self-assessment based on the best available research to identify gaps in their district’s practice and generates a personalized playlist of videos to help them develop their capacity to lead an exemplary digital conversion.
During ISTE 2015, we will be working with Future Ready Leaders to give first glimpses of the Future Ready Leaders Project. You can get a first glimpse of some of the footage we shot at 9 exemplary districts throughout the U.S., and take a first look at the needs assessment platform!
PLPress Author Pernille Ripp
Throughout the conference, we’ll tweet out coupons promoting our PLPress authors, including Kathy Cassidy, Pernille Ripp, and Sue Stephenson. If you’re lucky you may even run into Pernille Ripp, author of Passionate Learners! Pernille will be presenting about student voice, being a connected educator, as well as speaking at the ISTE Town Hall, so don’t miss her sessions!
