Empowering technology leaders to connect their practices, policies, and procedures to innovation
As schools seek to become future ready, it is necessary to identify and cultivate leadership at all levels and across multiple roles. Future Ready Technology Leaders™ (FRS Tech Leaders) support their school’s and/or district’s Future Ready Schools® (FRS) goals through their professional practice, policies and procedures. Derived from the Future Ready Framework, the principles outlined below describe how technology leaders can support schools in their transition to digital learning and specific ways technology leaders can become more future ready. By aligning the school/district strategic initiatives with FRS, technology leaders can better connect their practices, policies, and procedures to educational innovation in schools.
Acknowledging the various roles of technology leaders within schools and districts across the country, these principles are predicated on a core belief that in a Future Ready school, all students have equitable access to qualified technology leaders, digital researchers and innovative learning environments. In support of these goals, FRS welcomes technology leaders at all levels to apply these principles in their work to ensure that all learners are equipped with the knowledge and resources they need.
FRS Tech Leaders support their school’s and/or district’s FRS goals through their professional practices, policies, and procedures.
