  • Being a digital leader involves changing our norms…. Making different decisions, getting out of comfort zone… David thornburg once asked the question are we preparing students for our past, or their future?” If it is the latter we must create a new lead differently. Transition to next slide: Change is very difficult…it is a transition…. Sometimes we make changes for the sake of it ..it is challenging…many variables to the change/reform process &amp;quot;Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.&amp;quot;
  • Change is very strategic– we can’t move to fast Transition: why do we do this? Well sometimes we feel the money will be gone if we don’t move fast…. Look at our state….
  • Change is very strategic– we can’t move to fast Transition: why do we do this? Well sometimes we feel the money will be gone if we don’t move fast…. Look at our state….
  • Work still needs to get done, but with less personnel—when is there time in our new economy to strengthen our digital skills. Transition: Sometimes we are inhibited by this “digital world…” and want to continue with what feels comfortable…. How many of you sometimes fee like this?
  • And it gets worse…some days…we feel technolology and the digital world is less efficient and time effective…. Transition: or, we feel that we’re the one’s to blame…..
  • Transition: Sometimes “we” feel this way too….. But who are we and why we here?? Yes we live in the heart of the digital industry—silicon valley, but are the schools there better than anywhere just because of their proximity to these digital giants??
  • We work with schools in California as well as in rural areas such as Arkansas and Louisiana—we’ve seen schools in these areas model 21 st century approaches where as other schools we’ve seen right near our homes are back in the 19 th century….. It’s not about access or money or socioeconomics, its about leadership… how do you become a 21 st century/digital leader? What kind of visions have you or do you need to develop…or what do you need to know in order for you to make changes from 20 th century vision to a 21 st century vision…. Transition: let’s find out about you and provide you some hints a long the way…
  • Let’s see how you are connected to our digital world…connecting to this world helps leverage your 21 st century vision. Transition—these are just some of the questions you need to ask your teachers, leaders, students, and community…so think about this as we go through the presentations…. Our hope is to provide to help you develop the “change” through ….
  • Helping you think about a vision for this digital era and some other key factors that will assist you in developing that vision, but know this vision needs to be a bit flexible as some of skills and tools out there change We will also go over some skills that can assist you in implementing your 21 st century vision and help our students learn. Lastly, You can take your vision and these skills many different directions. What kind of support and strategies are out there and have been to developed to provide you some ideas?? Well, we will go over the TICAL project– to ease you into a variety of strategies that are already being used…. Transition: Why vision, skills, and strategies? What does this have to do with leadership?
  • To do this you must have a clear, realistic vision and the skills and strategies to have mastery relating to the values that are prevalent in the 21 st century. Full understanding of the changes you want by understanding the past and present to get to the future. Transition: In order to increase student achievement we obviosuly must put the students first….so … let’s think a bit about students….
  • So let’s brainstorm….. In the last 30 years or so….. Think about…how have students changed? How are they different now do they interact differently? Or the same? What are some things
  • We record findings on word- To be posted on Ning later
  • Yes..students are still social..but they are true digital learners…actively digital…. Sure puts a different thought on kinesthetic learners…. Very engaged in digital medium…more than ever before…why? Access is so ubiquitous… Not only that…. They “world” they connect with is beyond their block…their street…their physical environment……. Transition: Let’s see how these students are engaged in this digital world….
  • 1956 Bloom headed a group of edu. Psychologists. 1990 new group of phy. Led by Lorin Anderson, student of Bloom..first off…. Anderson noticed students are much more active and learning is done most efficiently through doing…. Notice the change…. It is not about acquiring skills anymore, but now it actually all about doing….the nouns are now verbs…. And notice … anderson believe student are most active cognitively, when they are creating… we now from the survey that they have access to create much more readily. Transition: So we definitely see how students have changed and how they are much more active AND self-directed in they way they acquire or learn new information…are our buildings and facilities allowing for this? Now….
  • Think about how schools have changed….
  • Not much of a difference … But look we do have technology integration in the last 30 years right?? We now that all schools are like this…take a look at this…..
  • So we know what the students think,…. What do the researchers think at a global level?
  • Transition: How can we help develop these skills, not only for our students, but our staff members? What kind of standards do we our should we hold our school community accountable for..
  • Creates a backbone to help guide goals and objectives… developed with a great deal of input from researchers, educators… rubrics, assessments, and guides to help drive these 21 st century schools and make everyone ready for jobs tomorrow….. Transition: what are the major focus areas of educational leaders…how do we become a true digital leader….let’s looks at the standards…
  • Visionary leadership-establishing s shared vision and communicate it throughout school and community, develop strategic plans for implementation Digital Age Learning—model effective use of technology to enhance learning and provide technology rich and tools seen to motivate students and increase achievement Prof. practice—model effective communication and transparency, provide PD and opportunities for growth, stay current in educational research and emerging technologies Systematic improving– use data to drive instruction and procedures, retain and hire effective staff members, create and sustain and continue to develop technology infrastructure Digital Citizenship- ensure equitable access, create policies and model effective use of technology in our collaborative world
  • Use this transition to talk about students motivation toward these skills
  • EMAIL– gaggle, message boards, gaggle More: gaming, Google earth, satellites climates, digital story telling
  • Through the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and with cooperation from ASCD and Common Sense Media, CoSN commissioned the Metiri Group to conduct the study. random sample from the 14,199 public school districts in the U.S. stratified by four locales (e.g., urban, suburban, town, and rural) The report is based on the surveys from nearly 1200 district administrators, including 389 superintendents, 441 technology directors, and 359 curriculum directors.

  • (Update this slide with your own name, role and affiliation.) Welcome to this introduction to TICAL, which stands for “The Technology Information Center for Administrative Leadership”; a mouthful, so you can see why it goes by the nickname TICAL. I am _______________ and it’s my pleasure to provide you with an overview of the TICAL project and how you can use it to improve the use of technology—in your school, in your professional life, and even, perhaps, in your personal life.
  • Portical.org is TICAL’s Internet portal. It houses all of TICAL’s professional development resources. You may be wondering just what a portal is.
  • In everyday language, a portal is a door, gate, or entrance. In Internet jargon, a portal is a web site that offers organized links to pre-selected sites on the Internet. A portal may offer some original content as well. TICAL’s portal is both of these things.
  • The heart of TICAL is a searchable database of carefully selected technology resources. These resources include publications, models, people, hardware, software, and vendors. TICAL’s true value lies in the fact each of these resources has been recommended by a knowledgeable colleague and comes with an abstract to help you determine if the resource would be of use to you.
  • Each of the resources in TICAL’s database addresses one or more of the following areas: Integrating technology in standards-based curriculum Data-driven decision-making Financial planning for technology Operations and maintenance Professional development in the use of technology Technology planning
  • Like other Internet portals, TICAL does offer some original content that has been created by TICAL staff, cadre members, and invited experts. For example: The Tools and Templates section includes such resources as a Backwards Mapping tool and a Workshop Time Planner. The collection of Expert Opinion pieces includes short article, research summaries, and narrated slideshows on such topics as Supporting New Teachers to Use Technology and Web 2.0 for Administrators. You’ll also find Profiles and Success Stories that give you a glimpse of successful practices and the administrators who are making them happen.
  • TICAL’s Forum provides you with a way to communicate with colleagues across the state and the nation on topics related to education and technology. If you have a group of administrators who needs a place for an online discussion, TICAL can help. And one of the most beneficial parts of TICAL is the Ask-a-Question discussion area. If you don’t find what you need in TICAL’s database, or you just want to pick you colleague’s brains on a specific ed-tech topic, post your question here and TICAL promises you will get a timely response.
  • Transition: Change is about making things happen that wasn’t possible before. Technology will allow us to have a synergy that will bring us together for a common goal…
