Learnings about technology integration in education from a local ed tech head in the Monterey Bay.

Motivating & Leading Learners with iPads:-)

TriCUE iPad in EducationI would say that I'm inspired by many things that are happening in our schools. Educators now have multiple opportunities for teaching & learning. This is the first time in human history that somebody sitting in their classroom or office has a chance to contact more than just the students in front of them or a few people at a time.

We have an innovation revolution that's going through our world right now is opening more doors for more people than ever before. When I look at the combination of those two things, I see opportunities, and I get up up every morning hoping WE as educators won't waste it.

As many of you know I'm totally addicted to helping people grow and watching the power that breakthroughs have with people, when you can see somebody doing something that they used to be afraid or used to believe they couldn't do. I find that really at the core of what it means to be a successful person:-)

On our last workshops I saw superintendents, directors, principals,  teachers, mentors, coordinators, counselors, assistants, and many more educators who learned to lead, collaborate, connect, contribute, laugh and play with a new community. 

I know this is what I do on a daily basis but there is nothing that excites me more than seeing people who teach our future for a living get inspired and motivated to go back into our educational instututions with vigor, joy, and new possibilities for teaching and learning:-)
