A professor of mine, Dr. Scott McLeod, was apparently bitten by the blogging bug recently and has started a great new blog called Dangerously Irrelevant about educational technology leadership. This blog was long overdue because Scott is never short on opinions and he has an approachable, thought-provoking way of presenting them.
I was talking to Scott on the phone recently asking him about which professional organizations were doing good work on behalf of people like me—tech directors in medium-sized schools. It doesn’t sound like there’s much out there. ISTE is heavy on the instructional side and CoSN seems to cater to really big districts. I’d be curious to know what professional organizations that other ed tech leaders find useful.
