The Path to Teacher Leadership in Educational Technology

Educational technology adoption models have not traditionally incorporated either teacher leadership or the complex systems in which teachers work. This article presents two frameworks for viewing online technologies and implementation practices within the complex interrelationships among key actors and parts of an educational system. The Learning/Adoption Trajectory and Systemic Sustainability models, developed in different lines of research, fit together to better explain the path to sustainable systems of teacher leadership in educational technology.

While I understand some people wish everything was a computer.  The vast majority of humans need a physical and emotional connection...something "artificial intelligence" cannot give you.

Francisco Restivo's curator insight, March 7, 2014 7:07 AM

I believe that we have to recenter the human machine relationship, and this must be done from school, letting young kids learn that they control the machine, and not the other way round.

Computational thinking and critical thinking are for humans.

Compromiso y colaboración...¿es una manera de hacer equipo?

Compromiso y colaboración...¿es una manera de hacer equipo? | Languages and cultures | Scoop.it

Competir con exigencias personales y profesionales, aumenta la cantidad de información en una gran variedad de formas de un creciente número de canales – por eso el futuro de la colaboración se centrará en el compromiso y los análisis subyacentes que impulsan el comportamiento humano, la productividad, la eficiencia, la satisfacción, oportunidades de ingresos u otros parámetros que afectan a nuestra organización, a nuestras ideas y planteamientos….

 

En un mundo altamente competitivo para conseguir la atención de la gente, el futuro de la colaboración comienza con el compromiso. El compromiso es la entrada, la atracción, el nivel de esfuerzo, la atención, el tiempo y la energía gastada por la gente hacia lo que sea que nosotros estemos tratando de lograr.

 

Sin compromiso, no tendremos resultados muy productivos, probablemente va a acabar con un grupo de personas conectadas vagamente con poca interacción significativa. Del mismo modo, al no contratar a sus respectivas audiencias dará lugar a muy pocos retornos de la inversión en tiempo, dinero, recursos y la tecnología que permite. No, el compromiso no es sólo acerca de la adopción de la tecnología o de la actividad reportada….
