Houston ISD/Dave Einsel:

National Connection & the Technology Leadership Network

The TLN program continues its focus on emerging issues and innovative practices that are transforming learning and shaping the future world of work. As part of the National Connection program, the portfolio of TLN issues address “big picture” concerns like E-rate funding and digital equity to cybersecurity strategies that protect student and employee data. The relationship between facilities, furnishings and the learning environment; tools to support a district’s digital transformation; or identifying career pathways to support a community’s long-term economic success can be found under the TLN resources.


NSBA has one of the largest Legal and Legislative Advocacy staffs in the education community. NSBA’s legislative team is here to provide information about Congressional bills and agency guidance impacting education technology that is working its way through Washington right now. NSBA's legal team files more amicus briefs—on your behalf—than all other education organizations combined.


Successful decisions can't be made without research, findings, and the advice of others who have faced similar circumstances. TLN’s benefits keep you in touch with all the latest data, news, information, and opportunities surrounding education technology.
