The East Irondequoit Central School District, University of Rochester - Center for Learning in the Digital Age, and Monroe #1 BOCES invite you to join us for our 3rd annual Digital Conversion Symposium. Come and learn about digital conversion and the tremendous benefits it offers for classroom instruction. Over 180 educators from 47 school districts attended our last symposium, comprised of leaders, teachers and information technology staff.

East Irondequoit is in the 4th year of its digital conversion with full device deployment (3400 iPads and Windows laptops). The district recently joined the League of Innovative Schools and the American Association of School Administrators Digital Consortium, and has joined forces with the new Center for Learning in the Digital Age at the University of Rochester to launch a regional Digital Conversion Consortium ... resource for K-12 schools.

Enjoy a keynote address from Eric Sheninger whose "work focuses on leading and learning in the digital age as a model for moving schools and districts forward". Come hear Eric talk about Digital Leadership and what it means to be Future Ready.
