A ROBUST PLANNING TOOL

 

This free online tool is designed to help district leadership teams plan systemically to use technology as a tool to effectively engage students, empower teachers, and improve learning outcomes. Through the Future Ready Schools® (FRS) interactive planning dashboard, district leaders assess their district's needs, identify gaps, obtain strategies, plan, and track their progress over time. 

Implementing meaningful digital learning requires more than purchasing devices for a school district; it requires thoughtful planning, preparation, and analysis of student outcomes, teacher development, culture, and leadership. This is where the FRS interactive planning dashboard can help. The dashboard takes school district leaders through each step of a systemic planning process to create a comprehensive approach and action plan for implementing digital learning before they make the next purchase, ensuring a smooth implementation.
