New Career Change

Greetings everyone! With the changing of the seasons also comes a new career change for me ~ Naomi Harm. I am now an independent educational technology consultant expanding my vision for inspired technology leadership ~ transform teaching and learning in the k-16 world. This new educational journey is taking me to new and exciting places where I can share my expertise to a global audience, and collaborate with others to learn from their best practices as well. This will be an adventure of a lifetime, while transforming the new digital landscape for 21st century education.

With the doorway now open, I have been approached by many educational organizations to assist them with their strategic planning efforts for 21st century technology leadership and shared visioning practices. Of the most recent opportunities, is I have accepted to be a keynote and sectional presenters the the National ICT Classroom Conference in South Africa in September '09. I will keep all of you posted on this adventurous and exciting teaching and learning opportunity. Also I will be speaking at the WiscNet "Future Technologies Conference" FTC in Madison, WI on May 6. My presentation will focus on how Web 2.0 literacy tools can transform teaching and learning environment, and how these tools are utilized around the world by teachers and students to meet 21st century skills, technology proficiencies and content and technology literacy standards. This is an innovative- forward thinking- state conference where leaders attend to gain new skill sets and best practices of how information and technology are transforming the educational learning environment for all.

If you are interested in more information on attending this conference or keynote and session presentations please visit their website at WiscNet or contact my favorite two people in the world John Pederson or Maddy Covelli at info@wiscnet.net for orgnaizing the 2009 FTC conference.

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!
