INFORMATIONAL

TO:

Division Superintendents

 

FROM:

Billy K. Cannaday, Jr.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

SUBJECT:

2008 Educational Technology Leadership Conference

 

The Virginia Department of Education is making plans to transition the sponsorship of the annual Educational Technology Leadership Conference to the Office of Educational Research and Outreach at Virginia Tech. Due to budget constraints and staffing changes in the Department of Education's Office of Educational Technology, it is not feasible for the Department to continue as lead sponsor for this conference.

 

Because this conference is critically important in providing technical assistance and professional development for technology leaders, the Office of Educational Research and Outreach at Virginia Tech has agreed to assume responsibility for this event. To ensure that the conference continues to address issues of concern to the K-12 technology community, the Office of Educational Technology will assist Virginia Tech during this transition.

 

The Educational Technology Leadership Conference will be held December 9-12, 2008, at the Hotel Roanoke and Conference Center. We are confident that the conference will continue to be an important event for technology leaders across the Commonwealth.

 

Should you have questions about the conference, please contact Ken Potter in the Office of Educational Research and Outreach at Virginia Tech via telephone at 540-231-9694 or e-mail at kpotter@vt.edu.
