Superintendent Symposium

About the Program

In July, 2015, California CUE and Discovery Education and the California State Parks hosted Superintendents from across California for a leadership symposium. Each superintendent delivered a brief talk sharing how they are leading the digital transformation of their district. Topics range from professional development for teachers to communications strategies, from going 1to1 to equity of access, from setting vision to scaling successes. You will find the recorded talks from these thought leader Superintendents below. Simply click on their image to listen to the strategies that have made an impact for their districts. Borrow the powerful ideas to apply to your practice, and share your ideas on Twitter #TransformingEDinCA and @DiscoveryEducation.
