  • Frank   Created by Carolyn, Melissa, Jennifer myself.   We also formed a focus group of nine administrators from around the state to help not only create the site but hone the capstone requirements.
  • Frank   These are the key areas of the project and website.
  • Frank   Key is that all activities must be relevant to their duties.   i.e. Digital Age Culture 1.   Create a resource page on the web. Many districts already have one.   As our advisors stated if they do this is easy to do, just add a few new ideas like a vodcast or podcast, for those who do not have a web presence then it will take a fair amount of time.   "Every Building Should have one"
  • Frank   Some are the same as the 21 Things for Teachers   There are a few that are different   Instructional Leadership School Improvement Tools   Beta Soon - Initial Launch in Jan 2011
