    ISTE CEO, Richard Culatta, Highlights ITI in ASCD Magazine

    READ: "Creating a Shared Vision"

    What is the difference between schools who are using technology effectively and those who are not? More often than not, says Culatta, it comes down to creating a vision for learning before jumping into buying devices or software. Culatta describes how using a shared set of digital-learning strategies helped the Los Angeles Unified School District rework a failed technology strategy and right path to meeting its central goal of enabling more effective and more innovative learning for students.
