Part 2 of 2: This podcast is a recording of a presentation by Wesley Fryer on June 16, 2010, in San Antonio, Texas, at the summer administrative leadership conference for Northeast ISD. This was a 2+ hour presentation, so the recordings have been separated into two parts. See the podcast shownotes for links to referenced videos and resources. (Audio from shared videos has been edited out of this recording.) The session description was: Much of the world has gone digital, so must learning at school. Creativity is vital, and good leadership matters. Stagnant, accomodation-level technology integration makes technology investments in our schools a waste of money. School leaders can and should encourage teachers to use digital learning tools in transformative ways to open new doors of opportunity for students as well as parents. By focusing on creating, communicating / sharing, and collaborating, principals can help develop a shared instructional vocabularly with teachers which is focused on student engagement. Without creation, there can be no creativity. How will you let your students create? How will you give students choices? How will your students teach the curriculum? These are essential questions to ask together with teachers, as we seek to effectively (and legally) “talk with media / pictures” and leverage the constructive power of digital media tools for learning inside and outside the classroom.

    Hi, I found your website on the list of the 50 Best Blogs for creative thinking. Congratulations. I’m always interested in creativity of all kinds. Great site.

  2. Thank you for doing your podcast. I have found it very inspiring and it keeps me thinking about the way I teach and the way my students learn. When you were discussing how students learn best with pictures I thought of a quote I heard some where along the way, “A picture can be worth a 1000 words, but still some teachers use 1000 words.” I try to keep that quote in mind when I am teaching. The best website I have found for pictures you can legally re-create and publish is google images. When you do a google image search click on the “advanced image search” there you can filter the images and one of the filters is “usage rights”. Have fun, and keep it up.
