Good To Great

I am again listening to one of my favorite books Good To Great by Jim Collins.

One section particularly struck me today, and I think the words are worth listening to, especially for school leaders who believe in learning and leading infused with technology:

We need to be leaders who think about “technology” as a piece, yes a major piece, but a piece in the puzzle.  School leaders must be grounded in best practices, and be lifelong learners!  We need to be able to model great teaching, support our teachers, share leadership, help establish quality PLNs, encourage collaboration, analyze and use data to help adjust practices, be open to paradigm shifts, design professional development that leads to student results, and work systematically and systemically with our district.

Wow!  The role of the school leader is an important one and there are so many pieces to the puzzle!
