Educational Technology Leadership

"The very least you can do in your life is to figure out what you hope for.  And the most you can do is live inside that hope.  Not admire it from a distance but live right in it, under its roof." -  (Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams)
Welcome to Barb Brown's Journey of Hope pathfinder!  The purpose of this pathfinder is to collect, organize and plan for research focussing on the essential conditions and strategies central to the adoption of instructional improvements for 21st century learning in K-12 schools. The focus of this pathfinder is on educational technology, specifically implications for leaders at the school and district level. Read more about purpose and intended audience ....
The "Journey of Hope Pathfinder" is set in the clouds. The background images in the clouds seem to shape and define one another; they are often continuously joined images with various parts connected with no identifiable centre. Different angles and perspectives may reveal alternate images. A "cloud" based work environment is often used to describe technological tools accessible anywhere that enable collaboration, connections and co-construction of knowledge, such as this pathfinder. There are numerous layers and relationships that add to the context and situated meaning of what is observed in the clouds.
