Twice a year, a group of 15 to 20 chief academic officers from innovative districts throughout the U.S. come together to share their perspectives on technology for learning, assessment and instruction. This summit is designed to help education leaders plan for the inclusion of digital media and learning methodologies in their districts. This is an opportunity for education leaders and industry executives to collaborate and address the most important policy, management and leadership issues surrounding the future of education across the nation.

The summit is hosted by the Center for Digital Education, a national research and advisory institute specializing in K-12 education technology trends, policy and funding.
