  • Focus on the vision for students. Tools are just means to an end. ISTE NETS-S http://www.iste.org/standards/nets-for-students/nets-student-standards-2007.aspx
  • This means letting teachers help determine the course of their training/professional development. What do they need for their classroom instruction? What do they want to learn?
  • Actively push the leadership of your district to expand their thinking and tear down boundaries. Education is power.
  • Adopt an attitude of “and” and not “or”. There is no perfect tool that fits every need or even every instance of a particular need. Don’t advocate a technology as such.
  • Technology should allow us to do things that would not otherwise be possible. Don’t settle for using it as a substitute for paper/pencil.
  • Average American watches 28 hours of television weekly.
    Read professionally—blogs, journals. Twitter is also great source of knowledge.
  • Share collegially (Today’s meeting is a great start.).
  • Twitter is another great resource here—excellent place to form collaborative group, ask questions, share answers.
  • Loudly share success stories with teachers (makes them contagious), leaders (makes us indispensible), and the community.
  • Don’t settle for pockets of participation. Keep in mind students in classes where teachers are reluctant adopters/adapters.
