One of the more fascinating discussions at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) 2019 in Orlando last month was centered on educational leadership, specifically what tech-savvy administrators do to advance their schools and districts. The panel discussion, hosted by international consultant Matt Harris and featuring thought leaders Alex Inman, Jianli Jiao, and Sonny Magana, included some unexpected ideas that any administrator can take to heart.
Educator First in Action: Incorporating Social Justice Frameworks in Edmentum Curriculum with Teaching Tolerance
Within the curriculum department, we chose to work with Teaching Tolerance in order to learn more about school climate, instruction, classroom culture, family and community engagement, and teacher leadership.

So, if you haven’t already, create your account, then check out some of these outstanding educator accounts and find yourself jumping down an entirely new (and entirely more productive) rabbit hole if fresh ideas and real-world advice.

The 30-60-90-day approach is a framework that helps in creating order and setting out a path to accomplishing such realistic goals. The model breaks down what progress will look like at the 30-, 60-, and 90-day marks of achieving long-term goals or sets goals over a three-month period, chunked into 30-day accomplishments. These 30-60-90-day plans have been used in the business world for many years as a measure of effectiveness.

[Professional Development] Why Every Education Administrator Should Make Peer Connections a Priority
Administrators face similar challenges related to demands on their time and isolated work environments just as teachers do—and they have just as much (or maybe more) need for collaboration in order to share ideas and tackle important problems related to student outcomes, whether online or in person. So, why should administrators focus on being “connected educators” and prioritize collaboration with peers?
