ATLIS publishes articles of thought leadership and practical application of technology in independent schools. Each issue focuses on a specific theme. For more information, contact Susan Davis, [email protected] 

Vol 3 (Fall 2019)
Theme: Leadership Literacies


Leadership does not simply alight on our shoulders when we are promoted to positions of so-called power and authority. To become competent and knowledgeable leaders of technology in schools requires our full attention to developing critical literacies in a number of areas, including vision-making, communications, empathy, and empowering others, among a host of other important skills and roles.

For the Fall 2019 edition of Access Points, we invite you to submit your article ideas for consideration. Articles can vary in format from extended scholarly research to personal anecdotes or case studies.
