This session is for leaders who need strategies for getting their teams to be mission-driven rather than remaining stuck at the procedural operations level. Too many schools fail to leverage the strategic importance of technology despite its critical importance to the sustainability of the school.  
Attendees will be led through an exercise to design a departmental mission statement that is a natural extension of school’s mission.  Participants will then learn techniques to ensure that the departmental mission serves as a guide for making complex decisions. By constructing a unified vision of how technology should function to support the mission of the school, administrators will begin to look at decisions about technology with a new perspective.  With clarity of vision, leaders can facilitate and foster innovative and sustainable learning practices, remove barriers that focus on control, and empower educators and learners alike.
