This podcast is a recording of a presentation on November 9, 2009, by Leslie Wilson, chief executive officer of the One-to-One Institute and former co-leader of Michigan’s Freedom to Learn Project. Leslie shared this session at the 2009 Great Lakes 1:1 Computing Conference in Chicago. It was titled, “Leadership: The Critical Factor (for 1:1 success.)” As Leslie describes, the leadership factor, vision, and “the why” of one to one learning is one of the most critical pieces of a transformational learning initiative. A compelling, articulated vision for 1:1 learning is pivotal, along with the ability for leaders to connect that vision to the outside world. Refer to the podcast shownotes for links and more information about the One to One Institute and their outstanding annual conference.
