As an instructional technology specialist, I spend a lot of time in training meetings. Kat, Wes, and I need to know what student support systems are available to teachers and how to use them. All of this is happening while we're staying on top of incoming support requests.
It's a little crazy, really, because it turns into a mobile command center. We grab a table and open the laptop to the training materials while our iPads and/or phones quietly hum in the background.
The hardest part of all of these meetings is not becoming cynical listening to the low-fruit goals set by the tool. Our role is more to interpret the long-term goals of using our technology intentionally for creative work with these outside systems playing an ancillary role.No Comments on Serious work meeting
