Think Like a Leader
This is a great topic for a Podcast. I like the idea of focusing on leaders. And, I like the fact that the leaders are from business, the military, and government, as well as education. As a teacher, I see this being used as a model by students. They can use this idea to interview leaders in their own communities for their own Podcast productions. As for supplying you with a lyric, I guess I need to speak to my Garage Band. For now the only lyric I can offer is: Roses are red, Violets are blue, I like the Podcast, To me, from you.
Great introduction- now I am looking forward to what you have suggested covering... particularly in the area of the policies implemented by education technologists. We have a lot to learn about how to handle the responsibility of using technology appropriately in a school setting. Balancing access with security. Bandwidth for administrative functions versus educational functions. Even such mundane tasks as keeping software licensing information and ensuring that we don't exceed what we are licensed to use. Or managing student and staff acceptable use agreements. Knowing that Dr. Anderson is quite well connected and has access to some of the best educational technology leaders in U.S., even a few abroad, I am looking forward to some solid meat in the future podcasts - delivered in his witty, homespun, genteel Southern manner.
He's real, down to earth, inspiring and a great leader himself!
Dr. Anderson has conducted leadership workshops with my organization. He has interviewed my boss and a close friend. He challenges you and encourages you and at the same time will confront you to think differently. Take the time to listen, think, and reply back to him. I wish I could pick up his passion of reading! ~Daron
