Since change is difficult, and many schools do not have the resources, nor do all teachers have the training or the confidence to incorporate technology in their classrooms, why not choose JUST FIVE Web tools or tech software resources every school must have NOW! For example, we have established that all American schools have at least one or more computers because our society entered the digital age decades ago. Education has not caught up!…

"Apply directly to the Forehead!" My eTech Ohio Conference 2011 Reflections

I had the opportunity to attend the eTech Ohio Conference (#oetch11) on Monday, January 31, 2011. It’s a three day event, but with budget and time constraints, I was only able to attend one day. I am excited to attend each year, hoping to take away at least one new idea I can share with my staff. This year, I heard two presentations that were inspiring, encouraging, and practical. However, I will only reflect one the first one in this post.

The keynote presenter was Peter…

Revisiting Segregation

Most of the time, I read a news story about something in education, and I think about it for about five minutes before letting it go, chalking it up to just another new smudge on the complicated stained glass window that is public education.  The other day, though, I read the article “In N.C., a new battle on school integration," and I thought of little else during my…

What should busy administrators be reading (or watching)?

This is my first time participating in Leadership Day 2010, and I must say I am really excited to be a part of this fantastic movement. As educators, I would argue we all need to be inspirational and progressive leaders in our own right; however in education's current form we have building administrators and central office administrators as our leaders. Their jobs are extremely difficult, and I can honestly say most people have no idea how much time… Continue
