The presence of ubiquitous learning technologies has created the potential for redefining authentic learning environments suitable for 21st century learners. The Kansas Academy for Leadership and Technology (KAL-Tech) encourages dialog among school leaders recognizing the potential of 21st century technology-rich learning environments for redefining the way schools are organized and the way learning is conceived. More than 1200 school leaders in Kansas are KAL-Tech graduates and they are changing the conversation about education in the state! This paper explores the concept and philosophy of KAL-Tech, provides details of the evolution and growth of the KAL-Tech phenomenon, considers its impact on state and national levels, and explores the next generation of KAL-Tech thinking as it evolves into the Kansas Alliance of Twenty-first Century Leaders who are collaborating to support systemic change suitable for technology-savvy 21st century learners.
