Arizona Virtual CIO/CTO Forum 2021

Oct 5 - 6, 2021


This year’s Arizona CIO/CTO Forum is going digital again! The forum will once again be held in a virtual format over the course of two days. This event is designed to specifically address the unique interests and needs of Arizona’s K-12 educational IT community. Be part of a thoughtful networking and professional development opportunity that is designed for CIOs, CTOs, instructional technology leaders and their teams from around the state.

The forum is hosted by the Center for Digital Education, a national research and advisory institute specializing in K-12 education technology trends, policy and practices.

A message from our Keynote Speaker

CDE’s Arizona Education CIO/CTO Forum is the only event that’s “by us and for us.” The original event was founded by AZ school tech directors fourteen years ago, each year a steering committee of these individuals determines the scope and focus of the event. This year we will host our second virtual Forum. The event will focus on topics relevant to our systems, evolving classroom, digital citizenship, as well as a variety of others that are relevant to our work. Some examples include: the evolving classroom, an instructional technology showcase, standards alignment, data/cloud computing and disruptive innovation. We truly look forward to an excellent, relevant conference!

– Dr. Nancy Pratt, President, Arizona Technology in Education Association
