Digital Leadership

Supporting leadership in technology and digital learning through coaching, resources, events, and other capacity-building initiatives.

Building leadership capacity in digital learning

Principals, superintendents, and other educational leaders have a lot on their to-do lists. Through our coaching program and other capacity-building initiatives, we can share the load and help focus on what matters most – increasing student learning, improving engagement, and empowering teachers.

The LTC also has its fingers on the pulse of the latest developments from ISBE and the Illinois state government. Educational leaders can count on us for timely updates about new mandates and guidance affecting K-12 education and technology.
