When technology began aggressively entering the education landscape, many educators were given the tools, but not the training, to integrate it into their systems.
As the exponential pace of technological innovation (in education and society overall) became more and more apparent, the Highlander Institute did what they do best—they adapted to the needs of the here and now. The Institute specializes in hosting monthly and annual meetings for education stakeholders to explore the new opportunities that have emerged in the education landscape. They create the space to not only discuss new technologies but also explore the shifts in pedagogy that come along with them. The Institute “focuses on the educator, providing unique, tailored, embedded supports at the class- room, school, and district level” so that local and national education leaders can come together and reimagine the possibilities for 21st-century learning.
