The purpose of the NSBA annual Technology Innovation Showcase is to promote technological solutions that advance and benefit student success in K12 education. “It can be challenging for school board members and their school districts to stay abreast of all of the latest innovations, given the vast array of new technologies available,” said Ann Flynn, NSBA’s Director of Education Technology. “In highlighting innovative solutions, NSBA’s Technology Leadership Network aims to provide inspiration for decision makers looking for new approaches to both old and new challenges.”

“The Technology Innovation Showcase was created to introduce school leaders to new approaches, enabled by technology, that address real issues in K-12 education,” said Thomas J. Gentzel, NSBA’s Executive Director. “With its unique focus on the intersection of education policy and technology practice, NSBA has a long history of serving as a bridge between the entrepreneurial community and school leaders charged with making critical decisions.”
