The Undiscussables of Tech Leadership (as well as a few other thought-provoking blog posts from his blog, Around the Corner).
I've worked (hard) for 20 years to be the best educator I can be. do my best to understand, both in an academic sense and in a pragmatic, experiential way, what that even means.
Part of me believes that it's all perspective. Being a tech leader (or now, just a leader having taken out "edtech" from the title since it's all just "ed" in 2012, right?) at a small school I go back and forth from positive to negative, frustration to optimism. In no particular order and not tech-related, here are a few things that I just do not get-
-We do we think covering material means learning has occurred?
-Are we too obsessed with technology, gadgets and devices?
-Why are so many children given spelling lists and words to memorize?
-Will we ever agree on what makes a good school or a good teacher?
