NSBA Education Technology Site Visits


Since 1987, the National School Boards Association's Technology Leadership Network has hosted education technology site visits that give educators a first-hand experience of successful technology programs in districts. Through these site visits, educators get an in-person look at successful methods and essential conditions for technology implementation at their schools.

From the past 28 years of site visits, the NSBA has seen that district leaders often cite these visits as an important factor in creating technology programs. The site visits take place at schools within the host district and include classroom observations, mini-briefings, and conversations with students, staff, board members, and community partners. Participants gain insight on how district staff implemented their vision, and in some cases, what changes they would make if starting over.

If you are interested in starting an education technology program within your own school or district, check out the upcoming site visits later this month:
