I have been thinking about my experiences this year with our teachers in Laptop Focus Group, my Lead Tech Team, and Kal-Tech
and I can't help but think about the growth we all have made ..... as an individual, contributor, creator, teacher. Wow!! My brain can't hold it all :-)
My Kal-Tech team
is made up of a great group of educators from Ellis, Kansas. They are excellent educators struggling against the forces of change in their small rural community. They are the "cream of the crop" in their district. There are also four professors who work in the College of Ed. at FHSU
. They are also "cream of the crop" struggling to keep up with the curve of technological advances in their profession.
Life is an upward battle.
All of us have these people, the cream, living inside our organizations. Are we fostering their skills and creating opportunities for them to team? They can help design new learning opportunities. Leadership. Leadership. Where is it?
This year was HARD work for all of us "change agents"! The more we introduce change the "messier" it gets!
I would like to invite each of you to think and reflect about your experiences over this past school year.
What had the most impact on your life professionally?
What had the most impact on your life personally?
If you could change ONE thing in your building/district next year, what would it be?
If you could design a 21C skills class, what would you include? What knowledge is of MOST importance?
