Digital transformation is a buzzword that can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. What can IT leaders in school districts learn from a peer who has successfully implemented digital transformation to improve outcomes for students and educators? During CoSN2021, we spoke with Dwayne Alton, executive director of technology operations for the School District of Lee County, Fla., about how digital transformation enables teachers and students to differentiate how they teach and learn.

- Digital transformation involves not just updating technology but also ensuring equity, so students have access to the technology they need in school and at home.
