Technology In The Classroom: Can You Personalize Learning Without Devices?

I was lying to myself and didn’t even realize it. After completing numerous 5K and 10K runs, I was considering taking my running to the next level by training for my first half marathon. I would visit the specialty running store and look longingly at the glass case of GPS smart watches. “If I only had one, I’d run more,” I’d say to myself. “I would have up-to-the-second data and an increased desire to run. Everything would be easier.” I took the plunge and made the purchase. The features were helpful, and for the first few days, I did get excited to take my watch out for a spin. But over time, did it make me run more or was it essential to my running? Not at all.

4 Ways to Empower the Intrapreneurs of K-12 and Ignite Innovation

In the 1980s, the organizational leadership world was introduced to the concept of the intrapreneur. Simply put, intrapreneurship is a working style that emphasizes innovation and risk-taking – traits we associate with entrepreneurs. The difference is that intrapreneurs use these skills within, and for the benefit of, an established organization. I consider myself a serial intrapreneur because I constantly look for ways to encourage innovation at every company I am in. I’ve seen time and again what giving people ownership can do for results, be it in a private company, public utility, or school district. It’s time for intrapreneurship to surge in K-12 education, and from my experience, here are four surefire ways to ignite innovation in your organization.

Knowledge-Centered Service

How do teams capture knowledge about ideas and solutions in a way that is readily available throughout your organization? This is a question that challenges leaders everywhere, whether you direct a tech startup or a high school's English department. It is perhaps even more important when you are embarking on something new: rolling out a new initiative, starting to integrate new software and technology, trying out new devices. The last thing you want is for your lessons learned to get lost.

Discipline Through A Personalized Learning Lens

When we work with school districts to embark on a personalized learning journey, we empower students to be self-directed, independent, motivated, and well-versed in articulating and sharing ideas.

When it comes to what learning looks and feels like in my class, everything is different. Since dipping my toes in the pool of personalized learning
