For Leaders. By Leaders.
TICAL’S mission is to support K-12 educators in providing informed and
effective leadership in the use of technology to improve education.
How can technology inspire innovation and prioritize
soft skills and new practices of good teaching?
In Spring, 2019, a group of 75 Superintendents throughout California gathered to reset priorities for TICAL. The result is this collection of topics that link you to research-based resources, tools, and information.
