Are You a Credible Technology Leader?

Are You a Credible Technology Leader? | teaching and technology | 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. <===

Jennifer Clark's curator insight, February 3, 2014 10:45 PM

My grandfather had nothing and worked into his 80's.  He lead my family. Jane Goodall is a leader in saving the wild life.  I am very involved in that.  Henri Matisse was a leader in simplicity in Art; it doesn't have to be detailed to get the point across. I think President Bill Clinton was the best leader the US has seen as he helped college students and eliminated our deficit.  CHef Gordon Ramsey is an amazing leader although he runs with an iron fist, he commands respect and excellence in his kitchen.

The Focused Leader

The Focused Leader | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

Every leader needs to cultivate this triad of awareness, in abundance and in the proper balance, because a failure to focus inward leaves you rudderless, a failure to focus on others renders you clueless, and a failure to focus outward may leave you blindsided.

Kendall Haven, author of Story Proof: The Science Behind the Startling Power of Story recently wrote me about his latest research on business story endings.


It's way cool stuff. Bottom line: positive characters and positive endings are not as effective as we thought when desiring to shift behaviors.


Read the brief conversation between myself and Kendall, and then use the latest information to start crafting stories that will act as catalysts for change.

This is a pretty good article for teachers who are trying to divert from the traditional methods of leading the class. The main focus should be the steps given, which are easy to learn and broad enough to adapt any classroom. I would recommend others use this article as a guideline to how you should lead the class room. I like the idea of imagining the role as a "learner first."
