Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant | Digital Learning, Technology, Education | Scoop.it

When a school leader neglects to allocate sufficient professional development time for newly-purchased classroom technologies, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader doesn’t provide adequate technical support personnel for a new 1:1 laptop initiative, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader purchases system-wide learning software with little thought given to long-term financial and instructional sustainability, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader fails to ensure adequate parent education and support before initiating expensive, organization-wide technology programs, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's curator insight, April 6, 2014 12:01 PM

I'm in my office tapping away on my computer, and can hear sounds coming from the other side of the door: clinks from my husband washing dinner dishes, and chirps from my son Leo's iPad as he happily entertains himself.

 

"Happily entertains himself" is not a phrase I use casually. While Leo is absolutely one of the happiest kids you'll ever meet, he is also autistic, and does best with 24/7 supervision and support. So for him to independently busy himself with that iPad is ... kind of a big deal. iPads are kind of a big deal for many kids with special needs.

The flipped classroom model is turning the education world on its head. (See what we did there?) Essentially, students listen to traditional lectures not in class, but in videos that they watch independently. In doing so, teachers can free up class time for more interactive learning activities.  So, why wouldn’t every teacher do so?

 

Learning #Spanish #online the flipped way: study the interactive learning materials individually, and then sign up for the one-on-one online session with your Spanish native teacher in Spain for guidance and evaluation. Available for children (+9), teenagers and adults.
