BUILDING INNOVATIVE LEADERSHIP CAPACITY 
TO DRIVE DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN PUBLIC EDUCATION 

The Education Innovation Alliance (EIA) Innovative District Leadership Academy hosted in partnership with San Diego COE and San Bernardino SBCSS is intended to teach both non-technical and technical leaders about Innovation and Technology so they can better lead their districts through technology related initiatives and challenges. Understanding common mistakes, best practices, communication strategies, policies, and building an ongoing network of support with peers and experts is a best practice in dealing with current challenges and those to come. 
  
Each district team or individual attendee will work with experts throughout a 4-month course to build a solution to a technology challenge or drive an innovation / technology initiative in their district.  The first challenge we will address in the Fall is Digital Equity. The knowledge gained through this problem-solving exercise will provide attendees with tools needed to meet future challenges and drive technology related initiatives throughout your career.  

PROGRAM DETAILS

Participants will:

  • Receive a Micro Credential upon presentation of your project plan which will provide an innovative solution to some of the most pressing challenges districts face today. 

  • Gain an understanding of how technology impacts all departments within the district and learn strategies to unite departments around the district’s technology vision. 

  • Grow your knowledge regarding current and future trends, network infrastructure, and technology terms. 

  • Develop a greater understanding of Future Ready, ESSA, and the infrastructure components for those initiatives. 

  • Foster a general understanding of technology funding and other programs such as E-rate. 

  • Benefit from education and industry thought leaders sharing how to successfully engage stakeholders in order to create and implement a technology related initiative.

CA COHORT TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it.  One of the things I like about it brings people together from all around the state.  We are all struggling with it (technology) but because we have so many experts in the room we are learning from each other.”
