Headlines in the news

Who said that.
  • I am not complacent at all John. I have gone
    through experiences such as this for a very long
    time. I know I am right. I make the good
    argument, write the wise articles, and the
    persuasive letters. And sometimes I feel as
    though I am preaching to a stack of wood. People
    do not easily embrace change. Convincing them to
    turn in a new direction requires a patience and
    persistence that tax everyone. It does not help
    matters that the course we are attempting to
    follow could get us all hanged

  • Educators need to be genuine, authentic leaders
    that will infuse meaning in what we do as
    teachers. We all need to tell our success
    stories, assist others in helping, influence and
    inspire people around us.

I.S.T.ENETS for administrators
  • Leadership and Vision
  • Learning and Teaching
  • Productivity and Professional Practice
  • Support, Management, and Operations
  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Social, Legal, and Ethical Issues

37
4 Main Point from I.S.T.E.
  • Educational leaders inspire a shared vision for
    comprehensive integration of technology and
    foster a culture conducive to the realization of
    that vision.
  • Educational leaders ensure that curricular
    design, instructional strategies and learning
    environments integrate appropriate technologies
    to maximize learning and teaching.
  • Educational leaders ensure the integration of
    technology to support productive systems for
    learning and administration.
  • Educational leaders use technology to plan and
    implement compre- hensive systems of effective
    assessment and evaluation.

38
Educational leaders apply technology to enhance
their professional practice and to increase their
own productivity and that of others. Educational
leaders
  • A.     model the routine, intentional, and
    effective use of technology.
  • B.    employ technology for communication and
    collaboration among colleagues, staff, parents,
    students, and the larger community.
  • C.    create and participate in learning
    communities that stimulate, nurture, and support
    faculty and staff in using technology for
    improved productivity.
  • D.    engage in sustained, job-related
    professional learning using technology resources.
  • maintain awareness of emerging technologies and
    their potential uses in education.

5. Are you providing Project Based Learning?
60
Students prefer dealing with questions rather
than answers, sharing their opinions,
participating in group projects, working with
real-world issues and people, and having teachers
who talk to them as equals rather than as
inferiors.
61
Project Based Learning?(2 min)
62
Kids have almost no choices at all about how they
are educated -- they are, for the most part, just
herded into classrooms and told what to do and
when to do it.

The Beluga Whale
70
  • Howie,
  • My 6th grade tech class did a web evaluation
    sheet on the "Facts About Beluga Whales" site you
    shared with us. They still thought it was great.
    They Googled the prof that wrote it and were
    still convinced it was trustworthy. Finally, we
    did the attached website comparison chart with
    two other websites, and they finally figured out
    that it was bogus. I really believe that cross
    checking sites is the key, especially for kids.
    Thanks for the good information we got in the
    class.
  • Denise Y. Everhart

71
While other species of true whales are
endangered, the Beluga population is thriving.
This is due, in part, to the extremely bitter
taste of Beluga meat which discourages hunting of
the animals.Dr. Anatole Blickson, Chairperson,
Department of Marine Zoology, University of
Finland.

  • How to retain good teachers
  • -effective professional development
  • Workshops That Focus on Real Needs... -
    Face-to-face presentations
  • Don't Forget the Administrators
  • - Well-trained leaders are key to
    the success
  • Topics for staff development
  • - center on academic goals
  • School administrators are being targeted in
    technology-based professional development
    initiatives
  • School principals celebrate completing a "Laptops
    for Leaders" course
  • Professional development for superintendent is
    a step they never leave out

108
I.S.T.E.National Education Technology Standards
for Administrators (cnets.iste.org/tssa)
  • Superintendent take a 50-hour technology literacy
    course along with other administrators
  • Progressive superintendents and executive leaders
    can and should lead the way.

109
And finally
  • Is the leadership capable of bringing about this
    change?

110
HOW TO OFFER OWNERSHIP OF CHANGE TO OTHERS
111
  • Inform people in advance
  • Explain the overall objectives
  • Ask them to participate in all stages of the
    change process
  • Be flexible
  • Demonstrate your belief and commitment
  • Appreciation and recognition to those
    implementing the change
  • Show people how it will benefit them

112
If you are that Leader..
  • from the book The Backdoor to Enlightenment
  • Eight Steps to Living Your Dreams and Changing
    Your World

113
Will you be the 10th person?
  • For every nine people who denounce innovation,
    only one will encourage it.
  • For every nine people who do things the way they
    have always been done, only one will ever wonder
    if there is a better way.
  • For every nine people who stand in line in front
    of a locked building, only one will ever come
    around and check the back door.
  • Our progress as a species rests squarely on the
    shoulders of that tenth person. The nine are
    satisfied with things they are told are valuable.
  • Person 10 determines for himself what has value.
