Washburn Academy Administrative Leadership Day

Greetings Administrators,

Today you are here with me to explore the limitless possibilities of how social networking can play a vital part within an educational setting as an effective communication tool. You will have the opportunity to review current school technology leadership blogs and discuss between your team members how they are currently being utilized to engage teachers, students and community members with school information, activities and the sharing of best practices. Before the end of our hands-on session today you will actually create your own administrative blog within a collaborative team setting, which to create a visual web presence to share with your administrative team, family and friends.

Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…

Smartboard Training at the University Level

This week I will be offering Smartboard trainings to our local universities. I have put together a link list of "adult learner" content sites that professors and instructional trainers can easily use with their college students to enrich their curriculum offerings. This is just a "starter list" and I will continue to add to this list as resources are found and shared from others from around the world. Thanks to my social network of Twitter friends for the development of the Smartboard resources as a true global team!
