Across the Gulf - Remembering Technology Integration

What is the core, fundamental experience of instructional technology? As I reflect on my years of experience, I'm trying to take a trip down memory lane, back to what helping another educator was like. I'm reaching for that root experience because I feel that something has been lost over the years. And, with my focus having been more on communication and infrastructure, I have achieved some professional distance.

As a campus technology coordinator in the Mt. Pleasant ISD, but also a teacher, I always remember working side-by-side with other teachers in my grade level. Just as they shared their lesson plans with me, ideas for new learning activities in the classroom, I slowly started sharing what I was already doing in my classroom--helping students use technology to reach a deeper understanding of content.

For example, I remember my first projects with third grade to sixth grade students:

  • Students used The Graph Club to create graphs based on a "paper" spreadsheet they had made, measuring the characteristics of vertebrates and invertebrates. 
  • Students used HyperStudio to create multimedia, hyperlinked slideshows about the solar system. They introduced graphics, pictures of themselves, audio narration in English and Spanish.
  • PBL (project-based learning activity) to explore complex subject like apartheid in South Africa.
I often ask myself, What was the level of technology integration of these activities? If I had to evaluate the LOTI level of the graphing activity, I'd label it as a Level 3-Infusion. Or, if we're using SAMR, probably augmentation. 


These days, I often find that we focus on the tech, the tool, the app, and what you can do. It's easier to focus on that. But I continue to long for the kinds of activities that require more of me as a learner and learning facilitator, that hearken back across the gulf of years to that time when it was about the learning objectives, and how to use tech to dig deeper.

But it's not just about that...it's also about encouraging others to use technology as a natural, routine, regular part of their teaching...and for students to embrace it as a part of their learning. In chatting with a colleague in Texas, he said something profound--until students had regular, daily access to technology, the culture of the classroom didn't change. When they did have the access, that's when the culture changed.

Of course, classroom culture has to connect to a district culture that's equally committed to shifting instruction. To that end, my colleague described a district that did the following a few years ago:

  1. moved its instructional technology specialists into the role of digital coaches
  2. focused on digital classroom initiative that built on instructional leaders in schools and
  3. embedded technology in the curriculum goals and approaches communicated to everyone.
Culture change, side-by-side coaching, and access to technology. It's clear some districts have found the formula, not because of star player in leadership, but because of a team committed together to achieve and empower others.

And the Race is On! Vote for your #TECSIG Officers #txed #txeduchat

The following email arrived in my inbox earlier today announcing that elections for new TEC-SIG officers are now open. Please allow me to share some of my reflections on what each of the candidates had to say, or was reported as saying by the person who nominated them.



There are some great candidates running! I've taken the liberty of listing the candidates and reflecting on an aspect of their platform, my key take-away.

Treasurer
  • Cori Coburn-Shiflett, Educational Technologist for Georgetown ISD - Catch her on Twitter!
    Take-Away: "
    Every situation is a learning experience...We can become a greater resource to all if we reach out and become more inclusive of members who may not have access to certain tools & professionals of experience." Reflection: Amen to that!
  • Tonia MeadowsCurriculum & Technology Coordinator for Friendswood ISD - Catch her on Twitter!
    Take-Away: "
    TEC-SIG’s resourcefulness is directly related to the number of people that participate. The more we have contributing to the knowledge base the stronger we are as a group." Reflection: I don't disagree with this perspective! This is the power of having a robust network of folks to connect with.
  • Rachel Medrano, Coordinator of Instructional Technology, Alice ISD - Send me your Twitter! ;-)
    Take-Away: 
    "...the SIG is heading the correct direction with the amount of collaboration that takes place on the TEC-SIG listserv"
    Reflection: We are headed in the right direction and need to make adjustments--reaching out to under-represented groups--so we don't end up on the rocks. 

Vice-President/President-Elect
  • Joel Adkins (Read blog)Director of Digital Learning for Crandall ISD - Catch him on Twitter!
    Take-Away: "
    I think outside the box and bring in new ideas...we are at a point of being able to engage in more strategic conversations with TEA regarding E-Rate, reporting, and developing resources to share across the state." 
    Reflection: Given the wealth of resources available online, the question isn't what can we develop to share but how can we better build relationships that facilitate sharing in new ways...outside the box ways.
  • Miguel Guhlin (Read blog)Director of Technology Operations for East Central ISD - Follow on Twitter!
    Take-Away: Gee, just read the campaign platform online!
    Reflection: Reading my campaign platform, you wonder how this can be accomplished in 2 years. I shudder to think what happens if we don't unite together to address the challenges the organization faces, as well as strengthen our blessings.
  • Tracie SimentalDirector of Technology for Huntsville ISD - Catch her on Twitter!
    Take-Away: "
    SIG should be a resource that will provide professional growth opportunities of individuals and facilitate relationships between districts."
    Reflection: One of the most succinct points that gets at the heart of who we are.
  • Mark Simmons, Technology Director for Sabine ISD - Catch him on Twitter!
    Take-Away:
    "
    To increase membership and collaboration through meaningful professional development."
    Reflection: Professional development is only one aspect of Mark's plan. But collaboration and increased membership has to be one of the leading strategies.

Wow, lots of great candidates running against me for TEC-SIG Vice-President. Maybe, I should put it a different way:

There are a lot of great candidates running to make TEC-SIG a space where even MORE of our voices matter!
Best of luck to all the candidates! There is no shame in losing, only in not having made the effort to improve the world around you!

BTW, would this be a good time to mention I'm an INTJ? Just want to make sure you know...

Where Our Voices Matter: Detours to Achieve Success #tecsig #txed #txeduchat #edtech

Note: The TCEA TEC-SIG election will open on March 2nd, and close on March 15th. If you are a TCEA member already, be sure to sign up for the TEC-SIG at a cost of $20 (best $20 you've spent). Find out more about Miguel Guhlin at www.mguhlin.net

"Hasn't the total number of systems we have to provide student and staff information to just...exploded?" asked a technology coordinator sitting next to me at the Fall, 2014 TEC-SIG meeting. Others nodded their heads as they agreed vehemently. As I reflected on the journey my own district has been on to solve this challenge, I experienced a powerful catharsis as I realized that I wasn't alone.

Image Source: http://goo.gl/Ij0NnE
"We've encountered the same issue in our school district," I began tentatively as a roomful of eyes sought me out. "Here's what we've done to deal with that issue." As I shared our story, and others chimed in, I couldn't help but wonder, "What if this group of technology directors hadn't been here to share ideas and solutions?"

As a candidate for the Vice-President/President-Elect officer in TEC-SIG, I have known the benefit of these experiences, each a touchpoint leading my organization and I to success. At every point in my career as a technology director, whether an instructional technology director or a director of technology operations, I have relied on others, as they have relied on me, to find detours to roadblocks. Please allow me, if I may, to share 5 detours to roadblocks that we all typically encounter, and while doing so, share my vision for what TEC-SIG can grow to be.

"It's not about being the best, it's about being better than you were yesterday" via @kylepace #tecsig #TCEA15

When I was a young teacher, a TEA Monitoring visit came to my school. As the only member of the site-based decision-making committee (SBDM) who knew how to create a slideshow (e.g. Harvard Graphics), it fell to me to organize our presentation. One way to organize that presentation--which had positive results for the campus--involved outlining roadblocks and detours around those roadblocks.
Image Source: http://goo.gl/wcZ0P7

Roadblock #1 - Lack of awareness of TEC-SIG among potential members
"Have you ever thought about joining TEC-SIG?"I asked a group of 20-25 instructional technology directors, coordinators and specialists at an after-hours meeting at TCEA 2015 State Conference. As I listened to the group share about their informal efforts to connect about real problems they were facing, and which I blogged about, I realized that they had no professional organization they felt represented their needs. 

As TCEA TEC-SIG Vice-President/President-elect, my detour around this is increased use of grassroots technologies we now have available to us. Those include, of course, PLNs, Twitter, Google+ Communities, in addition to the TCEA web site. I often consider TEC-SIG as my first Texas Professional Learning Network (PLN).

Outreach through existing members and other organizations remains our best  opportunity at connecting with those who don't know about TEC-SIG, an organization that will be their voice. The question is, Will these potential members believe they need TEC-SIG with access to so many other tools? Some of the groups that we need to make more of an effort to connect with, whose voices need to be amplified include our technical support staff, as well as assistive technologists.

"Miguel," asked a Special Education staff member in my District shortly after I took on my role as Director of Technology Operations, "how does Instructional Technology support assistive technology?" To be honest, I was surprised.  In my experience, assistive technology and instructional technology staff seldom worked out of the same department. How to bridge the gap? I immediately asked colleagues I knew from TEC-SIG how they handled this, and it was not long before I had enough feedback to craft a staffing proposal for a special education technology specialist that was jointly supported by Instructional Technology and Special Education.

My role as Vice President/President-Elect would allow me to make outreach to others a top priority; the richer, more diverse the community, the better the quality of interactions and feedback you can rely on to help you. 

Detour - Make outreach a top priority, involving CTOs, Instructional Technologists and others by inventorying common challenges and bringing them to light.

Roadblock #2 - The Meeting Formula
"What's the format of a TEC-SIG meeting?" It's a question with an easy answer. As long as I have been a member, the formula has deviated only slightly. On Thursdays, the entire group meets, attending a keynote and a few break-out sessions. On Friday morning, a Texas Education Agency (TEA) staffer gives a short talk about increasingly less important information. Isn't it time to change things up after so many years? Let's do mix things up a bit! Imagine the energy that would be generated by having an EdCamp style TEC-SIG meeting, blending in Pecha Kucha, table talks, and problem-based learning (PBL) approaches. A real need is how we can streamline processes using approaches like the Baldridge Model or American Productivity and Quality Center (APQC). These efforts can enable us to build on improving processes and performance management, which are sorely needed in K-12 schools, and (dare we say it?), our own work as professionals in an organization. 

Another key consideration includes the simple fact that we are awash in a sea of learning opportunities. Like TCEA, TEC-SIG's parent organization, we have the responsibility to connect with others through a variety of social media approaches. These connections are already happening with other organizations, and I know I would love to find out how others are accomplishing a variety of technical and instructional goals through webinars and just-in-time VoxerChatsGoogle+ Hangouts and Twitterchats. These kinds of opportunities strengthen our annual face to face meetings--in Fall, Winter, and Spring--and enable us to build relationships with fellow Texans.
Detour - Join with other TEC-SIG officers and volunteer-leaders to transform how we interact during face to face and online meetings.

Image Source: http://goo.gl/QlbLKq
Roadblock #3 - Vendor Interactions
"Why are they doing this to us?" asked on irritated technology director. She was referring, of course, to the plethora of digital textbook adoptions, each of which had a different username and password convention. Like others across Texas, I found myself spending precious hours trying to get the right username and password combination setup for students and staff at campuses in my district. For smaller districts, the challenge is no different than large districts--inconsistency, no voice or way of making displeasure known. 

TEC-SIG has, in the past, risen up to sound the alarm when inefficient practices and/or policies are imposed. As a TEC-SIG Officer, I offer to advocate on behalf of both large and small districts. Consider this note I received from a Texas school district the last time I was responsible for vendor relations:
I am the technology directory for [a Texas school district]. I just want to say how much I enjoy all of the valuable information that you offer to the tecsig group. My district is small, approximately [2000] students. I wear many hats, some that really should not be placed on me. 
Had it not been for you and the tecsig group, the 8th grade assessment requirement would have caused a big panic for our Assistant Superintendent who handles the curriculum and testing services, among other things, for the district. (Source: Email quoted online)

My experiences as a technologist in both urban, as well as rural districts, enable me to empathize and represent your needs.

Detour - Serve as the voice of school districts suffering beneath the yoke of poorly thought out account management and identity management for digital textbooks.

Image Source: http://goo.gl/sNyTZL
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 organizing TEC-SIG members and others to develop a model for District Curriculum Coacheswhich 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.

Image Source: http://goo.gl/3rNd00
Roadblock #5 - Network Services, Infrastructure, and Technical Support lack representation.
"What learning opportunities do we offer our technical staff?" I asked and only recently have we seen some effort made to meet the needs of support for information technology side of the house. TEC-SIG must expand its support to more than just instruction, bringing into the light those who MAKE IT HAPPEN every day through their efforts. 
TEC-SIG must also expand it's session offerings and events to represent our technicians, our network engineers, systems interface specialists and database administrators, empowering them to connect and collaborate!
This is a view that TCEA's Executive Director shared when I corresponded with her earlier this year:
...anyone who is interested in ed tech can legally join TEC-SIG. That includes anyone employed by a school (public, private, charter, higher ed), ESC, vendor, parent, etc. The SIG caters to those who are technology directors, but membership is open to anyone, just like it is for the other SIGs and for TCEA itself. We want to be inclusive and not exclusive!
Detour - Expand TEC-SIG's Offerings to involve and serve the needs of ALL who support Technology in K-12 Public, as well as private/charter, ESCs, schools, home-schools, and higher-education.

CONCLUSION
As a leader, I constantly ask myself, "Can I be better than I was in the past?" I believe we must ask the same question as a learning organization. As I ponder what TEC-SIG might be in two years, I see an organization whose ranks have swelled to include all who labor on behalf of our students, from the technicians who crawl in the ceiling laying cable to the curriculum coach who suggests Google Classroom as an easy way for a teacher to share learning resources in a PBL unit to the Chief Technology Officer who must lead, connect, and communicate to achieve far-reaching results.

As your Vice-President/President-Elect, I will do my utmost to collaborate with others to connect, communicate, collaborate and create a qualitatively better experience for TEC-SIG members while reaching out to those who are unaware but needful, disenfranchised but longing for a place where their voices...where our voices...matter.

Be Open to New Possibilities: Focus on Your Strengths

Image Source: Tweet via @tinacpa 
Heading for greener pastures seems the cowardly way out. After all, if you aren't happy with where you are, improve it! Bloom where you are planted, as my teenage spiritual mentor said to me.
Aside: Unfortunately, her life story took a tragic turn so truism about making sure you are following your own best advice rather than advice designed for another should be kept in mind!
That "Bloom where planted" attitude defined me in the past, but as my wife has often said to me, "Life is too short!" It's career advice well-worth listening to, especially when it's supported by folks like Dr. Scott McLeod.

Sometimes, metaphorically speaking, "grass" doesn't get greener, no matter how much you water it because the environment isn't ready for change. As another friend put it to me, "You have 3 to 5 years to make a difference before petty conflicts, inaccurate perceptions, the system push back." His wisdom, invoking Law #2 of Peter Senge's 11 laws of The Fifth Discipline, certainly flowed from his life experiences, which have carried him close to retirement.

I'd like to suggest that there is another way to frame this situation. This paraphrase of a popular quote comes via @JustinTarte:
Are you willing to do something you've never done before to accomplish something you've never before accomplished? Make the commitment... via JustinTarte 
One of the easiest ways to accomplish what you haven't done before is to do NEW things. Technologists have the best opportunity to accomplish this, don't they?

As I look at my list of accomplishments in the context of the organizations I've worked with--which I had the opportunity to do recently as I updated my ePortfolio and "polished my resume"--I ask myself, "Have I done this before?" I ask other people, too.
"Have you done this or seen this done here?" The response tells me what the probability of success is.

For example, if your educational organization has already passed out a laptop to every teacher, and many teachers destroyed the laptop or damaged it, then the organization probably won't want to do that again without serious reflection on what went right and wrong...and probably a significant change in personnel (a la "wiping institutional memory").

Having moved from one district to another over several years, I've definitely seen that the grass isn't always greener in the new spot. But each opportunity does allow one to learn new things, practice new ways of acting that might not be possible in the last location you were at. After all, every human being is unique...the "PLNs" or "networks" we build are as unique as the people in them. If you don't fit in one network, then move on to another. Fear, uncertainty and doubt are barriers to growth...they can also serve as fuel to be better, as a source of reflection that moves you forward.

For reflection purposes, I ask myself a few simple questions:

  1. What did I do right?
  2. What could I have done better or not done at all?
  3. What could I do in the future to improve achieving the organization's goals and mission?

And, I also have to forgive myself. We all do our best "in the moment." No matter how well-prepared I am, I know that I will certainly fail at something. It's a perspective that keeps me grounded at appraisal time, but also helps me cultivate a learner's attitude...no matter how old or wise or savvy, I can learn from new experiences.

I still remember the advice Dr. Scott McLeod gave me (paraphrased because I can't remember it verbatim) so many years ago--when you're in a spot where nothing you do is making a difference, it's time to move on.

Over the years, I have found that "polishing my resume" liberates my mind, helps me re-connect with the person I want to be rather than the person I have failed to be. It's an energizing process, and one I recommend to others--when you find yourself focusing on failure, make a list of what you're good at.
Talking about your positive goals activates brain centers that open you up to new possibilities. But if you change the conversation to what you should do to fix yourself, it closes you down,” says Richard Boyatzis, a psychologist at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve.Boyatzis argues that focusing on our strengths positions us to be open to new opportunities.Source: Daniel Goleman, Why Self-Improvement Begins with Self-Reflection

Protecting Against Scams (Updated)

Update: Fox7News in Austin, Tx interviewed my daughter after they read this blog entry. Read the news report online.

"Dad," my daughter told me, "the Austin Police Department just called me and said they were going to arrest me! They tried to 'Mirandize' me over the phone, if you can believe that!"


"What?" I spluttered, completely caught off-guard. I'd been in a meeting discussing creation of data files when the emergency text messages from my wife and daughter had arrived. I couldn't imagine what my daughter might have done to merit police attention--she's a student at a Texas university, hasn't been in Austin, Texas for over a year, and law-abiding.

After several frantic moments--"Don't panic! Stay cool!" I advised my desire to "Be Dad and Take care of everything!"--which involved conversations with my wife and an attorney, we decided this had to be a scam.

What was amazing was the scammer's ability to call from a phone that reflect the Austin Police Department. And, this is a scam:
The Austin Police Department has received a number of reports from citizens who have received phone calls from people claiming to be from Austin Energy, the Texas Attorney General’s Office, the Travis County Attorney’s Office, the Internal Revenue Service or other similar agencies. The callers try to convince citizens that they owe money or are entitled to money, then ask them to purchase pre-paid bank cards at local stores. The callers then ask the victims to call them back and provide the bank card information, including PIN numbers.
The City of Austin or any other legitimate agency or business will never ask for credit card or pre-paid card information over the telephone. City of Austin personnel and/or Austin Energy contract personnel do not collect payments in person or at your home/business for City of Austin services. This applies to any City of Austin employee, including those with Austin Energy, Austin Water, Austin Resource Recovery or any other city department. In addition, city employees wear identifiable badges.
Residents who receive calls from, or are approached by, people demanding payment for utilities, should contact the City of Austin Customer Service Center at 512-494-4900.
If you have been a victim of this scam or receive a similar call, please call
3-1-1 to file a police report. (Source: Austin Police department)
The actions my daughter took included filing a police report with campus police, as well as calling the Texas Attorney General's office.
