The last thing we want teachers to do is ask permission to be innovative! That’s an education given. #LearnFWD15 #FutureReady

In the early days of Internet communication Gwen Solomon invited me to NYC to be part of an edtech get-together. My good friend Norm went along. Norm understood me, and was good at translating ideas. I miss him. We made it to the conference. From where we sat I could see Gwen, and a very quiet large screen remote of Kathy Schrock. Something was wrong. I got up. Norm asked, “Where are you going?” I said, “I can fix this.” I walked onto the stage. Gwen was more pleased than surprised. I jiggled a few wires, clicked a few buttons & we heard Kathy. Gwen introduced me to Kathy Schrock that way. ;>)

Just read a post on video teacher evaluations. It missed a few points. I'm not shy about mentioning a couple. The way that this video approach succeeds is when the video tools & format are consistent, & done often. The key is to have educators video themselves often for self-analysis. It's a bit more than videoing a golf swing, but self-correcting by educators themselves can happen. Relying on a "feature movie" approach for evaluation is more show than professional developmentally useful. Today, it is not difficult for teachers to create their own consistent Vlog log for better teaching. There's more, but that's a start.

In business, you can’t afford to miss a new idea from every team member each day. Imagine the number of ideas possible, as well as the potential combinations. Chances a few would pay dividends. In education, you can’t afford to miss hearing from each student, each day, and in every classroom. Think of the interaction and participation possibilities. There’s more than a lesson. ;>)

“Thought” & “Leadership” together is still an unstable education banner without the words “Specific” & “Action” added. #EFF15 #Edchat

Stories about the lack of, or inappropriate use of, technology by teachers and students in schools seem to get more attention than stories, where those tools are used well. There can be no judgment, unless all the facts are known, as well as reasons considered. We need to know more about the products, solutions, techniques and practices used. Are they outdated, used correctly, need modification, or just inappropriate? Is professional development a complete, ongoing, necessary part of the process? Fix things that aren't working. Let’s read more positively active solutions to problems.
