Technology Planning Resources

After trying to submit a variety of technology planning resources tonight through one of our Wisconsin listservs and all emails being returned- I became quite frustrated with the limit of the 200kb attachment size. I have a found an alternative solution to share these resources with all of you through the embedded Google Site link for a hosting site for the tech planning attachments. Here is the support link:

I have personally created a variety of online technology planning assessment tools within Zoomerang, and also have collected over the past 5 years an "exemplar" collection of resources to support best practices through researched based tools. I am always willing to share to assist others in the "somewhat" agonizing task- but it is truly amazing to review the data results for the summarized surveys to support your technology initiatives within your school districts or educational environments.

Please remember that the Speak Up Day survey is also an excellent "FREE" survey tool to use within your district to gain critical strategic planning information. Here is the link This survey tool is NOW available and remains open until Dec. 19th. You need to setup your district information through the site and distribute the activation link within your districts to have teachers, students parents and community members take the survey. Results should be tabulated by late January early February 2009. You can request this info early if you need it to support your tech planning efforts.

Another tool kit to support 21st century learning environments and Web 2.0 planning is School 2.0 at Outstanding resources found within this site- even a bandwidth calculator for your 3 year tech planning efforts.

Good luck!

Hi Naomi,
There is a new completely free survey tool. Although it is still in Beta it works fine.

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. 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…

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.

Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…
