SETDA’s annual Leadership Summit is a unique professional development and networking event designed to foster in-depth dialogue among state and national education leaders, educational technologists and private sector innovators. This year’s agenda will focus on state actions in making the shift to digital learning including the implementation of digital and open instructional materials, ensuring educator effectiveness, the privacy of student data and the equity of access for all students. State and federal education leaders will share examples of policy trends to support digital learning.

 The Leadership Summit is attended by over 75 state members representing the educational technology leadership from more than 45 states, the executive leadership from a variety of educational organizations as well as the corporate community represented by SETDA’s annual private sector partners and Leadership Summit’s event sponsors. This event provides multiple opportunities for state members, SETDA’s private sector partners, event sponsors and executive leadership from national education organizations, thought leaders from the broader education spectrum, national policy makers, and high-profile district officials to engage in meaningful dialogue.
