In his blog, Harris' Helpful TechEd Tips, Bill wrote about his new job this week:
"In my weekly
reading of The Art of Possibility this week I was attracted to the
chapter on creating frameworks for possibility. After seven years in my
current dream position I will be moving on to another dream position. I
will be the Educational Technology Director for a PreK-12 private
school. The school is a technologically progressing institution seeking
advice, ideas, and leadership to be forward thinking and not downward
spiraling in technology adoption.
I see my initial challenge,
not yet knowing the political landscape; as working with educators some
who may be reluctant to immerse themselves or their students into
technology and others who are ecstatic. I will need to find the sparks
that will ignite them. In fact I will be seeking the enrollment, for
some, in something they may not have complete “buy-in” yet."
Bill, I can't imagine anyone better for the job than you! Our coursework at Full Sail has certainly prepared you for a bunch of teachers who are stuck in a rut! After all, how many times in the past year have we been faced with coursework that we had no idea how to do or even begin to approach?? But look at us now, ready to go out there and light the spark in our co-workers. I wish you were coming to my school!
