digital strategy

The intersection of networked, digital practices with institutional educational systems demands new conceptual tools and approaches for leaders, educators, and learners. An effective digital strategy is a guiding vision for an institution or program, comprised of complex, system-wide digital literacies and skills development, and targeted digital integration.

As a Director of Edactive Technologies, Inc., I lead workshops and conceptual sessions addressing the development and implementation of digital pedagogies, new media literacies, and digital strategy in education and professional learning, in alignment with key guiding principles from the fields of open education and educational leadership.

To grapple effectively with the implications of open and networked communications for institutional structures and practices, contract me to work with your faculty, staff, and senior management.
