Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

When a school leader refuses to remove internal policy and filtering barriers that get in the way of students and teachers actually using purchased technologies, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

Excellent book for anyone...... but especially the school leaders.

Marian Royal Vigil's curator insight, July 18, 2014 10:38 AM

I think uninformed and worse, unwilling to be informed leadership is frequently the barrier to effective technology integration in the library and classroom.

Aunque este artículo habla de diferentes temas en relación a la virtualidad, menciona algo que en lo personal considero es algo que todo docente virtual debe poseer.  Conocer a cada uno de sus estudiantes, no por esto me refiero a tener un relación personal con los participantes; conocerlos significa, el ritmo de aprendizaje que cada uno de ellos posee y su manera particular de aprender.  Si un docente lograr desarrollar estás habilidades, puede tener un porcentaje alto de éxito en el desarrollo de su curso virtual.

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, June 14, 1:57 PM
Online teaching is different in so many ways. Traditional teachers now have to learn new ways of approaching their teaching methodologies, and also learn new practices in order to be successful at what they do. In this article you will discover few great insights on how to better yourself when you want to step up into this “new game”.

The Great Make: Rocketry Round-Up | Make: DIY Projects and Ideas for Makers | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Many a Make: reader, especially those of us of a certain age, cut our teeth on building and flying model rockets. This one hobby required you to gain at least a basic aptitude in model construction (and all of the skill sets involved there), basic design and engineering skills, understanding the science and aerodynamics of flight, rudimentary electronics, ballistics, and much more.

Given the importance of rocketry for many of us in developing as makers, it’s no wonder that Make: has covered a ton of rocketry projects of varying stripes over the years, from kiddie water and stomp rockets to serious high-powered efforts. Here is a selection of some of these projects and articles from the past ten years.
