On the instructional side, our philosophy is informed by frameworks like SAMR, TPACK, Understanding by Design, and Universal Design for Learning. On the operational side, we follow best practices from the ITIL framework and CoSN’s CETL program.
Our goal is to provide the best strategic advice to schools, supporting those strategies with first-class service, in order to allow educators to focus on what’s most important: the growth and development of the children in their care. We empower school leaders, both teachers and administrators, with a growing competence and confidence in the use of technology by teaching technology with every strategy and repair we make. Our schools learn technology as they work with us, improving communication, service levels, and vision for what is possible.
We cannot t understate the importance of developing a positive relationship with administrators. Our Education Technology Architect likes to grab about 45 minutes of each of my head principals’ time each trimester for a “State of Tech Integration” meeting, where he highlights projects, reports out how I was using my time, and updats them on district news they might not have heard about. A sample report is available here. When reporting on my work with teachers, I used Understanding by Design terms that we were applying to all curriculum efforts at that time – acquire, make meaning, transfer – and paired them with an edtech framework in favor at that time, the “Technology and Learning Spectrum”.
The eBook below isn’t something you read. It’s something you talk through with school and district leaders as you work through your 3-year plan. The guide is arranged in a way to spark discussion, debate, and further research.
