Working in education and technology today requires the same type of planning, but the timeline to implementation is measured in days not years. We drag our feet trying to decide if we should put in another computer lab, or get a rolling cart, while the reality is both of those options are from "days gone by". We now try and figure out how we can support a 1:1 program, and if we time it right, wait long enough, keep asking the same questions because we hide behind old data based on the assumption that our students don't have the Internet, 1:1 will be history too, replaced by students that can BYOD.
We need to move, take action, implement technology today that will help our students do real-time work, personalize their learning, and give them anywhere, anytime access to educational content. Sometimes I feel like we are afraid to fail, purchase the wrong technology, or make the wrong decision. When in reality Failing Fast, so we can Succeed Faster is a much better place to live. Let's move forward....Just Dig the Hole.
