4.1.a Create…

…a shared vision and culture for using technology to learn and accelerate transformation through the coaching process.

While I am the first in line when a cool new piece of technology comes on the scene, I understand that not everyone shares the same sentiment. There are plenty of people out there who really could care less that Apple is rumored to be building an Apple car, or a VR headset. I know. It is hard for me to fathom why those rumors arent’ exciting to everyone! Nevertheless, I understand this and know that there are things other people find super exciting that I do not care about. Variety is the spice of life!

In the 2021-22 school year, I was placed on the school’s StrIDES team* as the technology integration leader to create goals and set expectations for the use of educational technology within our school. In doing so, we created a mission statement that says, the school will provide a high-quality education for all students through the use of technology in the classroom (paraphrase). Through this mission statement, provided to all staff, a ”shared vision and culture“ is created. Through this shared vision, I am able, as a coach, to come alongside educators to work towards a common purpose.
