On Thursday, November 15, the Alliance held a webinar featuring early digital learning adopters Ryan Imbriale, principal of Patapsco High School (MD); Brian Lewis, chief executive officer of the International Society for Technology in Education; and Kecia Ray, executive director of learning technologies for Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. During the webinar, Imbriale and Ray discussed how they are using digital learning in their schools and offered advice on how school and district leaders can help with the successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards in K–12 public schools.
Alliance for Excellent Education President Bob Wise and Lewis also discussed the need for states and school districts to develop plans that incorporate the use of technology in school improvement efforts. They also talked about how technology can help with school improvement efforts, assessments to gauge comprehension and learning, and shrinking state and school budgets. Alliance Senior Policy Associate Terri Duggan Schwartzbeck served as the moderator.
