Leading the change to Digital Learning

The Innovative Schools Leadership Workshop brought together over 65 leaders from existing and past Partners in Learning Pathfinder, Mentor and World Tour Schools from 30 countries for a one-day event on January 28th in London, UK, during the week of BETT Show, the world's largest ICT in education exhibition worldwide.

Together with workshop hosts Katelyn Donnelly, co-author of Oceans of Innovation, Tom Vander Ark, Editor of Getting Smart and Bruce Dixon, Director of Preston Dixon Consulting and co-founder of the Anytime Anywhere Learning Foundation, participants explored the role of leadership and what will be required to innovate education systems, digital learning and the importance of personalized learning as well as impact of ubiquitous access to technology on learners.

The highly engaging input from education experts sparked a lot of stimulating debate and discussion throughout the day. Take a look at the Hot Topics blog on the Partners in Learning Network and Tom Vander Ark's Getting Smart blog and download Oceans of Innovation.
