Terrific post. As administrators, we are going to need to model the use of new technologies for our teachers and our parents. How many principals have blogs? Wikis? Use podcasting? Have a del.icio.us account? and so on. This year I will be looking for ways to incorporate these tools into my everyday work life. I want to incorporate Wikis into faculty meetings and staff announcements. I hope to interview students, staff, and parents, and then podcast it. I will do more with videos of concerts, assemblies, and students performances on the web. But this is where I need help. I already know what tools are available. I now need assistance with how to make them practical to my work as a school principal.

Tracy,

Thanks for a great post. The three points you make regarding excuses are extremely important. Administrators, and teachers alike, often view technology and teaching as separate entities within their schools. One thing I have learned in the last few months is that there is no way going forward that those two will be exclusive of one another. It will be rare to see the teacher whose teaching is not in some way affected by technology, even adversely so.

THE USE OF MODERN TECHNOLOGY NOWADAYS ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT.. BUT WE SHOULD ALSO BE AWARE THAT THERE ARE STILL STUDENTS WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE AND WASN'T ABLE TO BE EXPOSE IN USING THE MODERN TECHNOLOGY DUE TO POVERTY... I AM A PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHER AND I USED TO DEAL WITH STUDENTS WHO DOESN'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO USE THE COMPUTER... ITS NOT A TEACHER FACTOR NOR THE STUDENTS AS WELL. ITS BECAUSE OF LACK OF SUPPORT AND THE ECONOMIC STATUS THAT OUR COUNTRY IS FACING TODAY.... WE REALLY HAVE TO HELP THE STUDENTS BECAUSE THEY ARE OUR FUTURE LEADERS..... AS ADMINISTRATORS LETS TRY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE ..
