Rule #1: Practice First. Never ever use technology without practicing it first in the location you will be using it - and still expect some happy accidents to occur. If things go "wrong," you are still modeling how to adapt and be flexible.
Death by Meeting
by Patrick Lencioni
"Still, punctuality notwithstanding, it was no surprise that any excuse to miss the weekly meeting was welcomed by Casey's team. In fact, it was somewhat rare that all six executives were present for the entire '
staff infection
,' as the sessions jokingly came to be known."
"But the meetings were
not a joke
when it came to their impact on Casey's company. They were the birthplace of the
morale problems
at Yip, the single point from which
confusion
,
dispassion
, and ultimately,
lethargy
emanated throughout the organization" (p. 38).
Where's Everyone Else?
PLC's and staff development workshops provide teachers the
opportunity
to
learn
new tools and techniques to use in the classroom; more importantly, however, these trainings can be the venue for
modeling
the use of
best practices
and
innovation
. Try out some of the ways we've successfully planted the seed to support our teachers on their voyage of technological discovery and application.

Plan some time.
Even if it is 5-10 minutes a day!

Rule #2: One Thing at a Time. Do not overwhelm yourself or others.
Rule #3: Be Authentic. Do not force the use of something new, just because it is cool. The technology should ALWAYS be relevant to the content you are presenting. Know your audience and model how THEY can USE it RIGHT NOW in THEIR CLASSROOMS/LIFE.
Rule #4: Let Other People Drive. Provide the opportunity for someone else to explore the technology and present his/her experience. This may happen after a "planting the seed" conversation. Now, you are truly planting the seed and letting other's grow!
Rule #5: Stay Current. Building your toolbox of great technology to integrate requires staying current. Create a Professional Learning Network -- and start SMALL.
Rule #6: Classrooms as Laboratories. Build relationships with teachers willing to take a risk and experiment with something new in their classrooms. Video tape the lesson and share with others. Cover classes so that other teachers can observe.
Rule #7: Reward the Risk-Takers. Whether the end result was great or not, celebrate the courage to try.
Rule #8: It's OK to Say "I Don't Know, Let's Figure it Out." You are not expected to be the expert in all cool things. Empower others to help find solutions. We're a TEAM!
