As I sit here at 6:30 on a Sunday morning reading through Eric Sheninger's book on Digital Leadership and participating in a Voxer Book chat, I became inspired by Allison Petersen's comments related to taking action during times of change.In particular this quote from Eric's book "A vision begins with talk, but it will only become reality with action" really struck a chord. What actions have I been apart of over the past few years at Black River Middle School that have moved all school stakeholders forward in the digital era? Here is the list.......
I am sure there are a number of things I am leaving out. All in all though, it's a pretty thorough list. When school stakeholders work together in an environment that embraces autonomy and innovation anything is possible. Taking action is a must in today's educational world. Relying on what has worked in the past is no longer an option. Realizing that it's not about what we as educators are comfortable with. Rather, it's what the kids know in the present day and are comfortable with in their own learning environment. Please share ways in which you have taken action in the digital era by leaving a comment below. Keep fighting the good fight!
