The Critical Role of Network, IT, and Tech Departments in UT LEAs

With so much money supporting technology initiatives, administrators need to get the most out of their IT spend and understand how edtech products are working for educators and students. Join us to hear how IT departments can lead work involving data and evidence with use cases from UT and beyond.

Many LEAs are rethinking the role of network, IT, and tech departments to ensure greater alignment with overall strategy and learning plans. These groups can bridge the gap between traditional operational functions of IT and instructional groups such as C&I and content-focused teams. Additionally, IT and tech staff have the ability to foster a mindset that recognizes technology as a tool for learners and educators to continuously innovate and grow. As IT staff roles evolve from being the technology gatekeepers to being technology enablers, it is imperative that they and others are empowered to address the curricular and business needs of each department within a school district. Join us to learn how network, IT, and tech departments can embrace this evolution with a focus on evidence to drive understanding of edtech effectiveness. LearnPlatform works with hundreds of LEAs of all shapes and sizes to equip leaders in this space with the tools to get the most out of your edtech portfolio, and as a state-supported platform, you can too with no LEA funds needed. You will hear stories from the field and take away practical resources you can use today.
