ISTE’s membership magazine, Learning & Leading with Technology (L&L), features practical ideas for using today’s digital tools to improve learning and teaching and for appropriately integrating technology into classrooms, curricula, and administration. In the September/October issue of this international publication, Newton-Conover’s Cindy Geddes, Director of Accountability and Technology, was the featured co-author of an article titled “Growing Technology Leaders.”

The article focuses on how Newton-Conover City Schools has leveraged technology to support teaching and learning through focused professional development, high expectations for instructional leaders and teachers, the creation of our Tech Team, and creative allocation of funds.  Moreover, Geddes and Jayme Linton, former Instructional Technology and Staff Development Coordinator in Newton-Conover, share insight into how the supportive environment, needs assessments, and empowering teachers all play major roles in the success we have here in NCCS.

Take a few moments to read “Growing Technology Leaders” in ISTE’s international Learning & Leading with Technology publication.
