In the second part of this vlog series on Information Technology in schools, I discuss the role of IT as it should be: a service. IT should be a service unit to the school helping every member of the school community work towards the school’s mission of teaching students. I discuss some resources for educating the IT staff and helping them understand the needs of educators. I also talk about certification and training around IT service models.
I work as an Educational Technology consultant at International EdTech committed to helping schools use technology successfully. I frequently present at conferences on Educational Leadership, Learning Technology, IT, and Data Systems. I am also a a published author focusing on Educational Technology, International Education, and Leadership.
