Instead of dismissing some #EdTech questions, think about what they mean.
It is an honor when another educator honestly asks you a question, but let us attempt to uncover what those *easy* #edtech coaching questions might tell us.

How are people repeating you?

Are you happy with the echoes of your ideas you hear others repeat back to you?
Sometimes it is an idea you know is rudimentary, but you recognize your idea in it when they repeat it back to you. I always worry the easiest parts of an idea take hold and the details are forgotten, but... Continue Reading →

Can I request a favor? I nominated Leslie Pralle Keehn, one of our instructional technology consultants, for this and she is now a finalist (more on her below). Unfortunately, this is one of those 'most votes' wins scenarios so I'm looking for some assistance... Please spread the word and get your family members / work colleagues to help? Thanks for considering this request. I promise she's highly deserving!

-----

Prior to joining Prairie Lakes AEA as an Instructional Technology Consultant in August 2013, Leslie Pralle Keehn taught middle and high school Social Studies and middle school technology courses at Northeast Hamilton CSD in Blairsburg, Iowa. After taking on a leadership role in professional development at Northeast Hamilton, Leslie helped lead the district’s 1:1 iPad implementation. Leslie has classroom and professional experience and training in numerous areas, including gamification, blended learning, project-based learning, and standards-based grading, and was one of the first teachers in the country to pilot the Big History Project. She recently became a Code.org affiliate trainer for their elementary computer science curriculum. Leslie has received several awards and recognitions during her time in education, including being named both a Bill of Rights Institute Fellow (2010) and C-SPAN Education Fellow (2011). Leslie remains active in  the Social Studies arena, serving as the Vice President and Media Director for the Iowa Council for the Social Studies, who also named her its 2012 Teacher of the Year. In 2014 Leslie was named a PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator, and an ASCD Emerging Leader in 2015. Leslie is a regular local, state, and national presenter, focusing on student creation, the maker movement, and empowering young learners.

Leslie and I connected our students in our 7th grade geography classes several years ago. She is a worthy recipient of this honor.

Captured by the phrase “New Containers, Old Methods,” I started thinking about what those new containers are. I started identifying the old methods educators try to squeeze in to them too.
New Containers, Old Methods - what are the new containers in #edtech? What are the old methods educators try to squeeze into those new containers?

Your Moon Shot approach will require a perspective shift. What will shift your perspective? 
A Moon Shot is something which humanity can rally behind, can support for the greater good, and change the trajectory of lives. Kind of like teaching.

Good Post, I liked the detail and thoughtfulness.

Have you looked at Copia Class Digital Content Delivery System. As a school leader, I find the flexibility for teacher while delivering a structured rigorous curriculum as a valuable tool for schools. Please take a look http://www.copiaclass.com. If you would like a demo let me know.

I find creating content only to consume immediately is an immature view of the purpose of creating content.

I find creating content only to immediately abandon it an immature view of why the content is created also.
Attending a 2nd grade classroom play I had to snap some pictures of my son’s classmates. They were doing something I had not yet seen. These students were recording the various plays presented and immediately replaying and watching them; in... Continue Reading →
