School districts are investing heavily in laptops, tablets, and netbooks as they put in place online testing programs for the Common Core State Standards. But schools may not be making the best use of these devices for day-to-day learning-what many educators believe is the key benefit of these technology investments.
An Education Week workshop aimed at helping educators maximize their investments in digital devices will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. on Oct. 14. Guests will be Eric S. Hileman, executive director of information technology for Oklahoma City Schools; and Valerie Truesdale, chief of technology, personalization and engagement for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in North Carolina.
