Abstract: Through five EDUsummITs spanning 2009 – 2017, approximately 100 researchers, practitioners and policy makers from across the globe have gathered to discuss ways to fast track what researchers know about information technology in education, into sound policies and best practices at the local, regional, and national/international level. This symposium focuses on outcomes from four of the nine Thematic Working Groups (TWGs) from EDUSummIT 2017, then seeks audience feedback and input on the findings and ways to best bring the 2017 Call to Action recommendations into implemented reality.
