Roadblock #4 – Competing Visions for Instructional Technology
“Do you think technology integration has failed?” I asked a colleague. His response was less than hopeful. For many of us across the State, Instructional Technology suffered a crippling blow when the state technology allotment was cut. These positions at the district and campus level exist only by the grace of habit or current leadership. A new model is needed that we can all join together and support.
To that end, I commit to inviting TEC-SIG members and others to develop a model for District Curriculum Coaches—which builds on the work of Dr. Dawn Wilson and Dr. Katie Alaniz–whose responsibilities span more than data analysis, high stakes test prep strategies, and focus on proven instructional strategies that replace 20th century pedagogical practices with blended learning. Rather than abandon instructional technology to islands of isolated local funding, we can work together to map a path ahead that all Texas districts can rely on.
Detour – Enlist the aid of volunteer-leaders in TEC-SIG, TCEA and other organizations to transcend age-old curriculum vs edtech debates, forging a new vision based on collegial coaching for technology integration.
