Presentation on Technology in Education

15 01 2010

In January of 2010, I had the chance to put together a presentation to a graduate class at Keller Graduate School of Management.  The course was entitled “Technology in Education” and students in the class are working toward their IL Type 75 Administrative Certification.  (I recently completed my MBA with a Management of Public and Private K-12 Educational System concentration from the school)   This gave me an opportunity to reflect on aspects of my job and share those with to-be school administrators.  It also presented the chance to reflect and find research on instructional aspects of technology.  Not only was it a valuable experience to present this to others in a comprehensive manner, but it required time spent on finding ways to illustrate how the components relate to school operations and instruction.

A really great discussion spurred from, and during, the presentation where students asked questions that were relevant to their own experiences and shared their thoughts.  It was a highly worthwhile experience both to create the presentation and to see the enthusiasm and nods in the audience.  I can’t wait to hear the ideas the students come up with in this class.  It makes me excited to see the enthusiasm and commitment to learning by the future of our educational leaders.
