“Why hasn’t educational technology transformed learning in the majority of schools who have spent millions on IT?”
Educational technology programs often struggle because integration challenges today largely stem from people/organization problems, not “technology” problems. The way technology leadership is often done in schools is akin to expecting crops to grow without farmers, only sharecroppers and migrants.
In Digital Ecosystem Leadership educator-technologist Matt Brady shares a blueprint for initiating and sustaining technological change from positions of influence only, outside of a school’s core leadership team. He identifies the common causes and effects of ineffective integration programs and lays out the leadership principles and obstacle avoidance strategies needed to empower others to use technology effectively for teaching and learning.
