Consortium to Serve as National Leader in Shaping Educational Technology Policies and Programs

Alexandria, Va. – July 26, 2016 – Superintendents who have championed the creation of successful models of digital learning in our nation’s public schools are gathering at West Leyden High School District 212 in Northlake, Ill., and Google’s headquarters in Chicago, July 27-29, for AASA’s Digital Consortium.

During the two-and-a-half day event, school system leaders guiding digital transitions will engage in a meaningful dialogue with their peers that will highlight emerging and successful models of combining digital content and professional development to improve student achievement. This event is sponsored by Discovery Education and the Horace Mann Educators Corporation.

“Engaging our members through AASA’s Digital Consortium is a profound way for superintendents to share best practices and strategies in our efforts to expand digital transitions in our classrooms,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA, The School Superintendents Association. “The consortium is an example of how participating superintendents are our premier thought leaders when it comes to moving the national education agenda forward. We thank Discovery Education, Horace Mann Educators and Google Education for supporting this initiative.”

Established in 2014, AASA’s Digital Consortium was created to support school leaders in the areas of innovation, creativity and technology. The next meeting, also sponsored by Discovery Education, is being planned for Fall 2016.
