Modeling Technology Leadership and Rethinking Staff Meetings

Are you a model technology leader? How do you use technology in ways that "practice what you preach?" Is it time to rethink your whole notion of "staff meetings?" Here are some ideas that will spruce up the old, add a little new, and still allow leaders to connect and collaborate with the entire team. Consider some of the blended professional development and collaboration ideas below. Share your ideas with me! While this resource was built with schools/school districts in mind, these ideas can easily be adapted for other organizations as well!

I started my career in Louisiana as an elementary and middle school teacher, then became a district technology coach and eventually director of educational technology for the state of Louisiana. During my time at the department of education, I worked closely with the state legislature on policy around education, technology, and professional development for teachers. I provide ongoing consulting to ISTE, many state departments of education, and numerous national and international educational organizations. I was honored to have been profiled as a “Shaper of our Future” by Converge magazine, and received the “Making it Happen” award for educational technology leaders. I also authored a book for ISTE, "Data-Driven Decision Making: A Handbook for Leaders."
