Institutional Excellence & Leadership

IMS promotes new connections and collaborations that accelerate digital progress in sound, strategic ways. By understanding our collective challenges, we define user problems and arrive at practical, usable solutions that empower better, faster attainment of learning.

Institutional Leadership Boards

K-12 Districts and States

The K-12 Institutional Leadership Board enables effective collaboration among school district and state leaders who create and implement technology integration strategies for continuous improvement in instruction and personalized learning. The Board leads the adoption of open edtech interoperability standards for curriculum, assessment, and all aspects of instruction to benefit school districts and states working to put a new generation of IT infrastructure in place.

Higher Education

The HED Institutional Leadership Board provides guidance in developing and adopting IMS standards to enable an institution to become more agile in integrating digital applications, platforms, and tools into its ecosystem to evolve personalized and connected learning. Members advance the effective use of innovative technologies and open standards to improve digital teaching and learning strategies and scale achievement and educational attainment.

Innovation Leadership Networks

The higher education and K-12 Innovation Leadership Networks are the collaboration arm for IMS institutional and state members. Each group focuses on a compelling need or topic and develops strategic resources to help the education community at large enable digital transformation. Their work also helps to inform IMS technical projects.

"The school day doesn't have to end when that last bell rings. Learning is happening all over. Broward provides digital learning opportunities for our students through what we consider a robust digital ecosystem because we built it on interoperability enabled by open standards. Only with open standards can we maximize the investment we're making in technology innovation."
Daryl Diamond, Ph.D., Director of Innovative Learning, Broward County Schools
