When the former Governor of San Luis asked Alicia Banuelos for a digital plan to transform this largely poor and rural province in central Argentina into a knowledge society, a technology integration model for other jurisdictions across the world was born.
During her ambitious drive to equip all students, and adults, with the skills necessary to leverage learning through technology – which included making free wi-fi for all a constitutional right – Dr. Banuelos’ plan came to fruition with ubiquitous government-sponsored technology throughout the territory, accelerated skill development among adults, and above all, technology in every classroom, which led to dramatically heightened student achievement.
Dr. Banuelos will share her success story of citizen empowerment, including details from her master plan that mobilized the political, community capacity building, and evaluation levers for change. This keynote presentation will serve as an inspirational blueprint for all who have ambitious 1:1 goals for their school communities.
