Do Districts Need a Tech Director?

I am now a guest blogger at Dangerously Irrelevant, which is a popular blog devoted to technology, leadership, and the future of schools. The author is Scott McLeod, L. D., Ph. D. who is a professor at Iowa State University. The post is an article that I did on the idea that districts should think about cutting the position of technology director.

Thanks to Scott’s popularity, my article has attracted a lot of attention from his readers and is getting much attention of high profile people on Twitter. Let me know what you think.

    Anyway, here are my more formal thoughts:

    I submitted a guest post proposal with Dangerously Irrelevant. Hoping I get it…
