School and district leaders often are asked to do more with less, particularly when it comes to technology and classroom modernization. Leaders must ensure that every dollar spent on technology and innovation improves accessibility and operations, enriches learning, and prepares students to join the future workforce.

Fortunately, districts and schools can leverage transformative cloud technologies that maximize security, lower costs, and help measure student outcomes. However, the cloud journey requires strategic vision, an ongoing cycle of review, and a hardware replacement plan that ensures both short- and long-term sustainability while simplifying the needed infrastructure.

In this webinar, Michael Coats from Southwest MiTech, and Dr. Travis Paakki from Portland (OR) Public Schools shared how they leveraged cloud technology to create sustainable digital learning environments with measurable successes, maximized security, and lowered costs.

Our guests shared

  • their strategic thinking, process, and vision;
  • their unique plans for long-term growth and sustainability;
  • how they manage their respective organizations’ transformation; and
  • lessons learned from implementation.

This webinar is made possible with support from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
