I believe in this - transparency, openness, no hidden agendas and first and foremost to serve my COLLEAGUES.

Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, July 5, 9:22 AM

Bosses or managers who don't respect those rules are into power tripping. They don't last long in this ever changing business environment. If they do, they take the company down with them.

"Without much controversy or fanfare, Tennessee has successfully implemented Common Core standards in math and English that establish specific skills students must attain from kindergarten through the 12th grade, said Jared Bigham, director of college and career readiness for the State Collaborative on Reforming Education. Bigham is spending the week traveling through Tennessee teaching parents and educators about Common Core."

One thing we should not do is allow any technology to disappear from sight once we begin to use it. Technology, digital and otherwise, is an extension of who we are as humans. This has to be considered at all times. Is this the right extension? Are we even aware of the extensions?

Year after year, hundreds of millions of dollars are funneled into technology initiatives and resources in school districts throughout the country. From hardware and software, to infrastructure and one-to-one devices, money is flowing into programs and tools for schools like never before, but are these technology devices and tools making a worthwhile impact considering the cost? Who’s leading such implementation and reform?


As these tools become more prevalent in schools, it’s school leaders that will make or break the success of such innovative programs and ultimately help determine if the monetary investments were worthwhile. Administrators that exhibit digital leadership will undoubtedly have a higher return on such investments in technology. Schools without such leaders face an uphill battle.


How can administrators exhibit such digital leadership?

I like saying this, "When we approach things with seven pillars, seven habits, etc. it is formulaic." Communication is a much broader concept than just as a pillar. It is foundational to education outside of the way it is expressed here and includes public relations. Should the latter even be an educational pillar?

The point about principals seeming to forget about their classroom experiences is what I saw with many principals, first year and beyond, particularly towards the end of my teaching. It coincided with their desire to create an imprint of a few of their favourite things i.e. digital technologies, 7 Habits, organize complementary courses, etc.
