My Digital Footprint

John Seely Brown

The web has just begun to have an impact on our lives. As fascinated as we are with it today, we’re still seeing it in its early forms… My belief is that not only will the web be as fundamental to society as electrification but that it will be subject to many of the same diffusion and absorption dynamics as that earlier medium.

Making Change Happen

Changing Paradigms: Sir Ken Robinson

31 days to become a better Ed Tech Leader (UK)
This is an excellent support tool by educational technology leader Terry Freedman. The project aims to guide the ed tech leader through a series of structured sessions in their own time and at their own pace over 31 days?  As it's difficult to find a logical sequence through the posts, I've linked to a site search of the term "31 days to become a better ed tech leader".

The Horizon Report
This report was produced in partnership with the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN).  The consortium's Horizon Reports are regarded worldwide as the most timely and authoritative sources of information on new and emerging technologies available to education anywhere. The reports seek to identify and describe emerging technologies that will likely have a significant impact on K-12 education, higher education and museums. Specific Australian reports are also available.

America's Promise Alliance
The Grad Nation Project is a 10-year campaign to mobilize the nation as never before to reverse the dropout crisis and enable our children to be prepared for success in college, work and life.  It’s a call to action for concerned citizens, businesses, community leaders, policy makers, educators and the nation.  Builds on the response to the documentary film Waiting for Superman - a view of the failing US education system.


The Future of Information Technology - K12
From CoSN (Consortium of School Networking), this document written by Robert J Moore has the subtitle How the Next Ten Years Will Fundamentally Change the Role of the K-12 CTO (Chief Technology Officer). It's a summary of a larger report about the role of the IT Department within K-12 education, cloud computing and virtualisation.

Developing a Technology Vision Statement
This blog post by teacher librarian and technology and learning coach, Kim Cofina, documents the journey her school has taken in developing a technology vision statement.  It's worth noting for those involved in developing the elearning journey within a school.  Of particular note is the involvement of all stakeholders - teachers, students, administration and parents.

Institute for the Future: Future of Learning
Bringing together innovators and thinkers to explore education.  New technologies, new ecologies, and new practices are disrupting how we learn, what we learn, and where we learn. The definitions of teacher and student are fluid. Education is moving out of episodic experiences at traditional institutions like classrooms and schools into learning flows that course through our daily lives.  This project assists in gaining perspectives.  Also Future of Work.
