"Jason Markey will be the first to tell you that this is the work of his community (and he truly means community which includes parents, teachers, and especially students) coming together and doing some pretty amazing things,.....  If something goes awry, at the end of the day, he will be accountable as principal of the school.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, August 24, 2:26 AM

The trust Jason Markey places in his community is of a very high level and the community members seem to have accepted and rewarded that trust with their attitudes and behaviours. This shows calculated risk taking and leadership exhibiting courage.

Deborah Welsh's curator insight, August 24, 3:17 AM

Ours is firmly placed within a Learning Management System. I fail to understand why, as this is not reality. Here is some innovative thinking.

How To Become A Better Online Researcher - Edudemic | Technology tools and shiny stuff | Scoop.it
When we ‘research’ things now, we generally aren’t referring to spending time in a library – or even referring to spending time online accessing specific library or school research databases. The word ‘research’ largely refers to the act of typing words into your internet search bar and seeing what the Wise Old Web tells you. …

Digital Technology And Student Learning: The Impact Of The Ecology

Digital Technology And Student Learning: The Impact Of The Ecology | Technology tools and shiny stuff | Scoop.it

"There is no significant linear connection between the use of digital technologies and enhanced student attainment. It is time to appreciate the traditional, simplistic way of looking at  the impact of digital technology on student learning has to fundamentally change and for all associated with schools to understand that the impact of digital technology on student learning can be profound if a suitable school ecology is created." Mal Lee


Via Allan Shaw
Deborah Welsh's insight:

Technology is about enhancing learning, and relationships. There are things never before possible, but central to the use of digital technologies is an attitude, a mindset of collaboration, not of the individual learning in the traditional competitive classroom. Many educators aren't quite there with that one yet.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, July 17, 6:31 PM

There is much written about the positive effects of a good school culture and how it is difficult to attain. The reverse also holds true and a negative school culture is deleterious to a child's development and a good culture can be easily lost. Mal lee has made the key connection between between school culture and expectation and the embedding of good digital thinking and practice in a school environment. Bravo Mal!
