New call-to-action

Thank you for attending our session
"Creating a Customer-Driven Technology Roadmap"
Now get those free resources we promised:

Session Overview:

Your technology department is essential to the everyday operations of a district and a critical partner to transforming towards student-centered classrooms. How can technology leaders balance the competing priorities of building out infrastructure with trying cutting edge technologies and access that teachers and students are craving? Learn how. 

Learn how Spring Branch ISD, TX designed a 3-year technology roadmap that aligned both to the district's strategic plan as well as around the needs of their customers - teachers, students, administrators, and community. 

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how design thinking can be used as the backbone for a customer-centered planning process
  • Practice using planning canvases to gather information ahead of detailed roadmaps
  • Gain practical tips on how districts can involve their customers (students, educators, administrator and community members) in strategic planning
