This podcast was created and recorded on June 6, 2007, during a workshop with school principals and assistant principals in Humble ISD, near Houston, Texas. In the first section, administrators share instructional advice for new teachers. After a brief personal reflection, the podcast includes the culminating discussion between administrators who had read ideas from Doug Johnson, watched a video of Sir Ken Robinson, or listened to Dan Pink share thoughts related to creativity, innovation, technology and school change. I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to the instructional technology department of Humble ISD, as well as the administrators in attendance, for this opportunity to explore and learn together what it should mean to be a digitally informed school leader in the 21st century.

    Great podcast! I have been reading over your Digital Literacy blog and will use some of the question prompts for my podcasting. Any website suggestions you can give me for music I can use on my podcast would be helpful. The students will really think it is cool if I can get some music on my podcasts before school starts. Principals are so isolated it is nice to hear from others. Teachers can talk to the teachers next door but principals don’t have principals next door. They have to call them or go see them to share ideas and principals are very busy. I will keep reading!

    Thank you so much. I am finding the music hunt frustrating so I might borrow one of your wav files until I know what I am doing. I am not familiar with all the copyright so I am reading up on it. I used Windows Movie Maker to add sound to my last one and blend it all together and that worked pretty well. I’ll let you know!
