Yesterday I facilitated a discussion with school principals / heads in Hong Kong in which they brainstormed “School Administrator Questions about 21 Century Learning.” I created this as a Google Moderator Series, and invite you to virtually “vote” for previously submitted questions as well as submit questions of your own. You will need to sign in to Google with a valid ID to vote or submit ideas. I submitted this post to the conference Ning for the 21st Century Learning @ Hong Kong conference as well.
These questions can be used for professional development discussions with teachers as well as with other administrators. I hope to share these with Dr. Scott McLeod, who works extensively with school leaders on educational technology issues, leads a center at Iowa State on edtech leadership (Dangerously Irrelevant.” I think these questions would be great to tackle as upcoming podcasts on my podcast channel, as webinar topics, and workshop presentations / facilitated discussions with school administrators.
How do you think these questions could best be utilized to support transformative school change?
