    MIT is "giving away" education free! What kind of a business model is that?
    Student misuse of social media sites have caused ed leaders to face new decisions about how to deal with this new issue. (There are always new issues to be dealt with by ed leaders. Are there underlying principles that should guide those in positions to influence decision-making?) This recent TV report presents the decision made by one middle school principal. Superimposed over the TV report you'll see another argument being made for an alternative decision. What decision would you make and why?
    
    Some teachers assume children know much more than they do about technology. Even if that is true in some ways, is there nothing that we should be teaching about using technology, social media in particular? And, what about parents? Do we as ed leaders have a responsibility to educate parents? Check out the message in this British video.
    StaySafeOnline.org is a resource for leaders who want to advocate for the safe use of the internet.

    This wiki has been created for the benefit of Oakland University, M.Ed. in Education Leadership students who are taking EL 690, the final course in the master's program.
    It will be used for communicating and sharing of resources. The students listed on the left are members of this wiki and each has a designated page. In addition, pages have been created for seven of the eight standards adopted by the State of Michigan for the preparation of school leaders.

    Okay, I found my own answer on this web site that seems to be by a teacher for teachers who are incorporating technology into their instruction. This particular link introduces Edmodo via a slide show and a You Tube video. (BC)

The Hechinger Report is an excellent source for Ed Leaders and I recommend you subscribe to their RSS feed to your IGoogle page in your Reader or a gadget.)

    1.2 Data should play a role in any change process but we should be data-informed not data-driven according to this blogger.
    Harvard is sponsoring a seven-part series of thought provoking commentaries on the Future of Education Reform. This link will connect you to the first three Commentaries.
    Strategic Planning in School Districts: Here is a handy guide to strategic planning that I thought was interesting. I find that my school is constantly thinking about our "strategic plan" and where we will be in 5 years, etc. I think this gives us something help keep our sights on the future and something to look forward to, work toward, and rally around.
    "Strategic Planning. ERIC Digest Series Number EA 41.
    Most school board members and district administrators instinctively like the idea of strategic planning. Many of them, however, confess to being confused over exactly what it is and what it requires. Strategic planning, writes William Cook, Jr. (1988), is "aimed at total concentration of the organization's resources on mutually predetermined measurable outcomes." An effective plan, by this definition, encompasses an organization's entire resources and purpose. It must be constructed deliberately and thoughtfully." >>full story
    (KCP)
    The author of the above article, Wm. Cook, was well known in the 1980's for his widely-used strategic planning model. His model however has fallen out-of-favor with many leaders who believe a more flexible and less cumberson model better serves today's organizations. For example, see # 2 in the article below. (BC)

    This article advises leaders to stop doing four things that are not working: 1. Ineffective PD. 2. Massive Annual School Improvement Reports. 3. Focusing on Structural Changes. 4. Focusing on Changing Culture. The source is the web site of the American Association of School Administrators. (BC)
