I can across this article today from EmergingEdTech and it immediately resonated with me. We have been struggling with this exact situation in schools in our own region. Whenever you talk to teachers, especially those that have some first hand experience of iPad use in the classroom, this is one of the first things they say to you. Real change in schools needs to come from the top. This is a great article where Principal David Mahaley discusses their approach to iPad implementation. Make sure you check out the rest of the EmergingEdTech site for some interesting articles on eLearning and Educational Technology.
Greg, you may be interested in the Lead4Change model. Auburn and other districts are using it for their tech initiatives, as well as other large scale school change initiatives, such as customized, competency-based learning.ReplyDelete

Hi Greg! Great Blog!! I think you would be interested in taking a look at this revolutionary new Math Game developed by a Norwgian/French company called www.wewanttoknow.com - the game is called DragonBox. I have written about it myself at http://ianmac57.wordpress.com/2012/07/16/wewanttoknow-to-partner-with-the-center-for-game-science-at-the-university-of-washington/ - I´d be interested in what you think of it.ReplyDelete
I would say that given the fact that technology will become more and more important in education and in the education process so, we would see more and more of these cases.ReplyDelete
I like the 2nd sentence "technology cannot be considered in isolation", thats so true. But we have to teach people the right use and the interaction. One Example is to pick the right things and not just to download everything (especially illegal). The have to know what they want and how to get it. And most important they should learn to prioritize, like these tools to automaticallyReplyDelete
