Ever since the #PENNSV16 trip to the San Francisco area several months ago, I’ve been seriously interested in the relationship between #edtech vendors and #edleadership. Fast forward to #ISTE2016 and the opportunity to dig deeper into this relationship.
If you’ve ever been to an ISTE conference, you know the vendor floor is like a carnival with no shortage of attendees interested in lining up outside the hall long before the doors open. As I waited to enter the vendor hall one morning, I ran into Dr. Rod Berger and shared with him some of my questions: What are attendees looking for in this massive carnival of edtech? How many of these people are school leaders and what kinds of critical questions are they asking as they encounter the next edtech solution?
Rod suggested we walk about the floor and have a conversation. The series reflecting our conversation appears over at Scholastic Administrator, and I think it will be of interest to school leaders and edtech vendors alike.

You may also be interested in the series from the #PENNSV16 trip to Silicon Valley and the relationship between school leaders and edtech vendors.
We need to bridge the gap in the conversation between #edtech vendors and #edleadership. How do we ignite this important conversation?
