Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant | Creating new possibilities | 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.

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea

Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute, South Korea | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

The Ecorium of the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea promotes a design concept by SAMOO Architects and Engineers that reflects three key concepts:

"From the Nature," "Be the Nature," & "With the Nature." 


The first is expressed by the dynamic, organic lines of the Institute and its grounds.  The second uses cutting-edge technology to recreate ecological environments by aligning greenhouses with the optimal amount of sunlight for each one.  The third includes visitors who immerse themselves in the complex ecological experience.  The Ecorium is poised to become a landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions.

We chose this article to be in the Intellectual/Arts category because it is about improvement of education. This article is about the National Ecological Institute in Seocheon-gun, South Korea which is an institute of ecology that focuses on 3 main concepts: "With the Nature," "From the Nature," and "Be the Nature" Its main goal is to become a "landmark in green research, education, and exhibitions." It looks like this landmark will help South Korea improve its knowledge in Ecological studies.
