This session cites the experiences that district leaders have had in scaling up technologies that drive access. As a result, presenters will give a first-hand account of what it’s like to evaluate, implement, and manage a robust single sign-on, class-rostering, and analytics platform. The use of digital learning resources has moved to the center of instructional strategy, so the need for equitable, secure, and easy access shifted from a thankless task for tech teams to a strategic imperative for district leaders. Panel Discussion led by George Perreault, ClassLink Chief Academic Officer.

George Perreault most recently served as Director, Instructional Technology and Library Media at Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) in Florida, capping off a distinguished forty-year career as teacher, administrator, and technology leader. During his time working in schools, Perreault guided OCPS through increasingly sophisticated use of technology in the classroom and across the district. After retiring from his position as district administrator, ClassLink approached Perreault to join its growing team in the role of Chief Academic Officer so that he could continue advocating for the effective use of technology in education. Having used ClassLink at OCPS, he saw firsthand how the company’s technology was changing the way teachers and students engaged with technology and with each other.
