I just returned from ISTE in San Diego where topics including personalized learning, embracing social media in the classroom, and BYOT made its way into almost every session presentation or conversation. Now it’s time to consider applying these key learning’s in the classroom come fall. The folks over at the Education Recoded blog also recommend using the summer reprieve for planning and new inspiration. The blog was launched back in October by Scott McLeod, John Nash, Justin Bathon and Jayson Richardson, the four directors of the UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE), an academic center dedicated to the technology needs of school administrators.
Aside from having a catchy name with a good backstory, I love reading Education Recoded because it’s a blog on a mission for change. They ask their readers to create a new vision of education while also offering tangible examples of how to make that change happen. By integrating tech leadership success stories and highlighting the key takeaways from a variety of sectors they demonstrate that looking at the big picture doesn’t mean you can’t find actionable items.
So if you are looking for a truly unique read on what technology leadership means to educators today, look no further than Education Recoded.
