It often seems like my school’s technology curricula are ten or fifteen years behind the curve, probably more, although our technology hard- and soft-ware are utterly up-to-date. the students feel (and are) disempowered, and the administration is uncurious about how to make technology work better for everyone — students, faculty, administrators.

My initial response (at the risk of every problem looking like a nail to my leadership hammer) is to focus on the administrators. Without their buy-in and understanding, nothing meaningful or substantive is going to happen in that school organization. There are a variety of ways to do this…
