In collaborating at our weekly PD meeting I often hear about the array of issues that surface with our school site's older infrastructure that affects our wifi network, thus inhibiting some teachers from using technology the way they would like to. In grade level meetings I have also heard the hesitation from teachers to try new forms of technology that could better engage students and offer choice in student assignments. With this information I have come to realize it is important to uplift and strengthen your team for common purpose or goal.The only way to do this is to educate yourself and your team so that can take ownership in their contributions to meeting the common goal. "Making people people smarter is the job of every leader." (Kouzes & Posner Ch. 9, 260) When people have knowledge they have power which then leads to confidence and growth. As a leader its is important to foster both of these characteristics among your constituents. This progress will allow the team to grow thus leading to success.
Every two weeks I will be presenting a new website or technology resource that teachers could use in their classrooms. This will enable teachers at my school site to gain insight on new technology resources that may work in their classroom to improve the learning environment.
