[PDF] Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader

[PDF] Technology in Higher Education: Defining the strategic leader | Language Learning @ the speed of change | Scoop.it

Information technology is so much the fabric of the university that its presence is often not fully recognized. The focus in the IT organization has shifted from a tactical to a strategic perspective. With the demand for IT only growing, understanding how IT leaders can best lead in these efforts is essential.

 

In early 2014, EDUCAUSE and Jisc came together to address a common concern: Understanding the skills required by technology leaders in higher education was an issue often overlooked and one needing immediate attention. The two organizations convened a working group of 10 leading U.S. and U.K. IT leaders to define a set of desired technology leadership characteristics and capabilities, now and in the future. This report identifies 10 key roles played by the IT leaders, describes what each of these roles entails, and outlines the essential skills required to perform them.

It always amazes me that despite being the world’s largest video library, YouTube is still blocked or banned in many educational institutions. As a resource for learning about almost anything, but particularly for language learning it is an incredibly valuable tool and a tool that many third party companies have started to build on and exploit to make its use easier and more engaging.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, June 20, 2017 3:09 AM
Many tools that can help educators exploit the learning potential of YouTube with a particular focus on English language learning. I hope you can enjoy these tools and if you do work in an institution where YouTube is still blocked perhaps you can use this article to help persuade the people responsible that the benefits of making the resource available far outweigh the manageable risks that it can create.

The Padagogy Wheel, v4 ... the Next Generation

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, March 9, 2015 3:33 PM

Here is a significant update of the Padagogy  Wheel developed by Allan Carrington. Here is what he has to say about what is included in the update:

  • Links to twice as many apps: It has direct links to 122 of the latest and most popular educational iPad apps.
  • App selection criteria: to help teachers make better app decisions These also are linked to the APPitic website and each Bloom’s Cognitive Domain Category has comprehensive selection criteria.  Prompts asking the teacher to think how the app would help the user achieve the domain activities.
  • Each domain activity linked to apps:  (that’s wheel 5 from the core) is linked to a group of apps considered most useful to enhance good outcomes.
  • The SAMR model wheel better communicates the idea.  This might seem a small addition but I have added two way arrows around the wheel.  I hope this helps teachers understand that the idea is to virtually align the SAMR model with the Bloom’s category they are working with.  The idea is once one or more apps are chosen then think Redefinition if possible. Just keep in focus that the SAMR wheel is meant to spin.  It also has a link to a great video from Dr P. as we call him in the ADE community (Dr Ruben Puentedura) who invented the SMAR model, that’s also worth watching.
  • The QR codes have been updated: and provide a great way to connect the “treeware” (aka printed) poster to online resources.  Every mobile device should have a QR reader App …. they are free as well.  The email QR code is particularly cool in it sets up an email to me in your email program and even gives it a subject line and says “Hi Allan”.
  • Information available in 19 languages: This is the most exciting new feature to me and it is again thanks to the hard work of the APPitic team.  So if one of these languages is your heart language, and not English, you can research the app and the pedagogical resources in your first language. Now that opens up help to a lot more teachers.  Of course the challenge is to get a padagogy wheel in the same 19 languages … anyone like to help?
