"Leading in the Digital Age"
9th October, 2015
Vivanta by Taj, MG Road - Bangalore


Educational Leadership Conference - Bangalore

Leaders need to be aware of the changing educational landscape, which includes societal shifts in technology use, advances in educational technology, and a new type of learner. Leaders today must establish a vision and implement a strategic process that creates a teaching and learning culture that provides students with essential skill sets - creativity, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem-solving, technology proficiency, and global awareness - commonly referred to as 21st century skills. These skills and processes should be at the heart of every decision a leaders makes and are key to providing students with the tools to succeed in jobs that have not yet been created. Consistent innovation, effective integration of technology, meaningful professional development, connecting beyond the wall of a brick-and-mortar building, and an open mind are all mandatory duties of a leader in the digital age. "The driving question we should be asking today is 'how' we should use the technology that is available to us to improve what we do instead of 'why' we should use it to improve what we do."


Most of the school administrators don’t have connections with local administrators and don’t have a lot of opportunities to connect and collaborate with them. Educators and education leaders also experience feelings of isolation when they want new ideas, and want to know about the best practices in offices, classrooms, or at home. Through ELC, they would be able to:

  • Take advantage of a great resource to de-isolate themselves;
  • Identify obstacles to change and specific solutions to overcome them in order to transform schools in the digital age.
  • Connect with a vast network of educators and thought leaders;
  • Utilize practical strategies from practicing school leaders that will provide a context for digital leadership in action.


ELC will be a great time and place for you to meet dynamic educators and educational leaders in person to celebrate their achievements and learn their secrets.

  • India’s Leading Educators To Learn From

  • Meet the Practical Innovators Who Make Today’s Schools Run Better

  • Discover the Secrets to Putting Their Effective, Proven Ideas to Work in Your Schools

  • Meet more than 150 of our nation’s most influential education leaders.


The ELC will aim to connect the early adopters of technology and 21st century education initiatives to experienced leaders and practitioners. Principals and administrators will share, explore, and learn about the integration of technology in their institutions and its benefit.

Educational Leaders will :

  • Highlight the current challenges and issues related to K-12 education;
  • Discuss about the solutions to those issues, required changes in the 21st century;
  • Share strategies for purposeful and successful edtech integration in schools.

Tweet along with other conference attendees! Connect and interact with educators by following #ELC15 on Twitter to discuss your conference experience.

A Certificate of Attendance will be e-mailed to all conference participants about one week after the conference.

Future ready schools are those which are focused on learning in a digital age and preparing students for the world of today and of the future. The culture of these real-world ready schools is based on building a leadership team, establishing a coherent vision for change, developing a systematic action plan, modeling for leaders effective and efficient ways to leverage digital tools to increase effectiveness, and modeling for teachers how to harness tools to support students' learning.

02:45 – 03:05 PM | What impact does technology have on learning and how do we measure it? - Case Study

All too often, in classrooms across the globe, teachers are claiming to be meaningfully leveraging technology, when in fact all they are doing is replacing traditional instructional practice with traditional instructional practice that uses technology. If this is the case, it is unlikely that there will be any gains in student achievement. Technology becomes little more than an expensive tool to do the same thing that has always been done. Increasingly, education systems around the world are recognising that substitution alone will have no impact. This presentation will explore the impact that technology is having on learning. It will ask if we are measuring this impact in the right way and provide some case studies of how technology is being used to redefine learning at an international school in Bangalore.

Speaker: Simon McCloskey

In this context, how to create space for change and innovation? I will share three magic tricks which can free teachers from the obstacles they perceive and unlock their creativity.
