This episode was inspired by George Couros's blog post, "It Is Time to Move Away from the Idea of “Tech Leads”? Here are the interesting quotes I commented on:

  • For many people that have “technology” in their title, no matter the role, it means to other people “please come fix things in my classroom that use electricity”.
  • "Another concern is that when “technology” is in the title of a position that is not about IT, it almost forces you to find ways to use technology in a classroom setting, whether good or bad. Go to a conference and someone uses Kahoot in a session, and then suddenly you have Kahoot parties popping up all over your school. Is this leading to deeper learning, or simply using technology more in classrooms for the sake of justifying a position?"

Innovative Teaching and Learning Specialist is more the route we should go when it comes to crossing technology and curriculum. An ITL would assist teachers' integration of technology but more importantly, an ITL would work to improve instruction.

Obviously, I would love to be in this type of position and make an impact on students AND teachers.

So if you know someone who needs a guy like me send them my way!
