I've just entered a new school. It's a high-performing, successful independent school. The challenge is that the school's success prevents them from seeing the need to integrate meaningful technology into their teaching - they don't think they need to. How can I establish need over time, while valuing what they bring and have been successful doing (though from another era)?

Our school system is going to plan a huge dive into Google Apps Integration. Has anyone already done this? Would love to hear some ideas going into planning!

PLN? there is a local elementary school that I am working to help integrate technology and create a technology strategy. Each teacher--some are early adopters and others need more proof--wants to see how other schools an/or classrooms are "measuring" the use of technology? what process are in place in your respective schools to monitor this integration? How is it being used (small group, whole class, individualized)? How do you know? What results are you seeing? How are you leading it? Any feedback and discussion would be most appreciated.

That is a fantastic resolution Cowpernicus! What convinced me about Twitter as a powerful learning tool was when I discovered how quickly/easily I could access passionate educators from across the globe. This network has allowed me to grow professionally and learn more in less than year than I had from any other PD experience over the past 6 years! Together we are better!

okay, New Year's Resolution: selling Twitter and #edchat to the other 61 Principals and 50+ VPs in my District. Wish me luck. Here is how you can help me (answer this question on Twitter #WhyLearn) What convinced you that using Twitter was a valuable Professional Learning piece?

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
