National Technology Leadership Summit 2014: Make It! Wear It! But do so Informally!
Abstract: A product of the National Technology Leadership Coalition, NTLS gathers an impressive array of leaders from various learning technologies and educational organizations each fall. Their collective focus—organized by three “strands”—is to address emerging issues and opportunities facing the national (and even international) P-20 community. In Fall 2014, the NTLS strands focused on Informal Learning, Make to Learn, and Personalized Learning Technologies. Activities generated by past National Technology Leadership Summits have lead to numerous conference presentations, articles, grant proposals, and a deeper integration of learning technologies into partner organizations. Attend this panel to hear from leaders of various professional associations on how NTLS 2014 has already begun to shape their work. Join in on the conversation by letting panel leaders know about the work you’re doing in these areas, and make suggestions about what topics you’d like to see addressed in future summits.
