Are You a Credible Technology Leader?

Are You a Credible Technology Leader? | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
We do not need our leaders to be our best users of technology, but they should know enough to safely use some of it and enthusiastically encourage and lead their teachers to use much of it.

 

Leadership, good leadership, transcends physical boundaries.  Technology cannot be dismissed from the leadership's responsibility to be in the know.  It is acceptable for the teachers to be more skilled than their leader in the use of technology with students. 

 

But it is not acceptable for the leader to stay removed from its use.  We need to learn beside our faculties and know and understanding the tools they are using. Room must be made for common understanding and improved use. 

 

Teachers, students and parents need to trust that those who make technology available and who advocate for its use know what they are talking about. The right mix of vision, knowledge, risk taking... and a dash of courage ...make schools dynamic learning environment for all of us.

 

The warning is against leaders giving the nod to their teachers without understanding the technology. 

 

===> It raises issues of trust, integrity and safety. <===

Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

Ecco cosa consiglia il collega d'oltreoceano: 

Stay Local > cerca delle occasioni di formazione/ condivisione vicino a casa
Connect Online > controlla la rete con le sue risorse
Attend an EdCamp > frequenta dei seminari (che chiamano edcamp...ne organizziamo uno???) 
Present or Volunteer > proporsi come autore o volontario nei congressi, worksho ecc: potrebbero esserci delle facilitazioni
Pick Up a Book & Connect with the Author > usare la rete (loro dicono Twitter) per chiacchierare con l'autore del libro che abbiamo comprato
Invest in Yourself > Joe investe il 2-5% del suo stipendio in formazione...ma quanto guadagna (verrebbe da chiedergli?).

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Had a great conversation with some fellow administrators this weekend.  We were reflecting on how sometimes people have trouble accepting a change in practice.  While I have sharedposts before on how to go about making changes in practice or procedures to create buy-in from staff, the discussion we had was geared toward what to do about staff that have not seemed to embrace the change and keep bringing it up in a negative manner.

 

 It's funny, depending on your perspective of course, how the little things can seem to be such a large distraction to your day as a building leader.  

 

The change in practice, one of my Tweeps shared, was a small practice that had taken place in the past, but it was one of those procedural things that shared information about student and was now easily handled through technology with the use of the Student Information System the district uses.  

 

However, staff members were used to having this information delivered to them daily.  I know, many may say this seems to be a first world problem, but as a building leader it becomes more than that.

Lou Salza's curator insight, May 13, 2013 5:11 PM

Let's encourage all our kids to own and tell their stories! We begin by telling stories we learn from others, then we start making up our own. Next we tell our story to ourselves and those we love. When we construct the narrative of our journey we gain agency over our days, our experiences and our lives. Tell your 'own' story to 'own' your life! This is the very definition of self advocacy.--Lou
