This webinar offers a look at what principals and other school leaders think of the power of digital technology in the classroom. An Education Week national survey of 500 school leaders showed that they believe it has the ability to improve student learning, personalize education, and engage students. Yet some educators and principals have expressed worry that too much screen time may be stunting students’ social-emotional growth. The influence of technology companies on personalized learning and increased access to student data is also concerning for some principals.
During this webinar, Education Week will review the results of the survey and discuss the promise and perils of the continued expansion of technology in K-12 education.
