Productivity for Technology Leaders is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership in our students’ technological world. There are many technological tools available in the marketplace that can help administrators in their tasks and help them succeed in their roles. Such tools make administrators more productive and efficient in their day-to-day tasks. For this professional learning group, school leaders will develop technology skills and strategies to better support their teachers and improve student achievement. Administrators will work together to better use technology to improve personal productivity and model the professional use of technology. Participants will discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the group and apply them to their own practice.

Leading and Learning with Digital Literacy and Computer Science is a hybrid professional learning group that provides face-to-face and online content to support educational leadership as educators embrace the Alabama course of study standards for digital literacy and computer science. Technology allows educators and students to transform teaching and learning and to develop crucial skills for communicating, creating, and interacting with each other in a global society. Technology allows digitally and computationally literate students to transition from being consumers of information and media to being producers as well. The goal for this professional learning unit is to prepare administrators to lead teachers and students to the forefront in exploring these technological opportunities. This professional learning unit will allow participants to explore how educators can empower students to use technology responsibly and appropriately to create, collaborate, think critically and apply algorithmic processes. Administrators will collaborate and participate in hands-on activities designed to develop crucial skills for communicating, creating, and interacting with each other as they lead teachers and students in a global society. Alabama Technology in Motion Specialists will facilitate two to three professional learning group meetings and participants must attend all meetings and participate in all online activities. Meeting topics are as follows: Computational Thinking and Computing Analysis, Global Collaboration and Digital Citizenship, and Innovative Designing. In addition to attending group meetings, members will meet online to complete technology explorations, digital readings and participate in discussion forums. Each administrator must complete an action plan. This PLU will be offered by Alabama Technology in Motion and meetings will be held in all regional in-service center areas. One PLU will be offered for each person who completes the required activities. This PLU will be offered for three years.
