Webinars for Education Leaders on Data Privacy and Cyber Security
edWeb.netand CoSN have partnered to host an edWebinar series to help superintendents with issues of tech leadership. In the most recent edWebinar, the presenters addressed five critical guidelines for ensuring data privacy in any school system’s use of technology so that superintendents and district leaders can learn how to make student data privacy a district-wide priority. Education leaders are encouraged to watch the recording of the most recent presentation on student data privacy and sign up for the next webinar on cyber security (November 12, 2018) to gain ideas and strategies for driving school and district improvement through technology initiatives.
Sir Ken Robinson once said in a TED Talk that "Teaching is creative profession."
I love that line.
Because of systems in place, as well as cultural stereotypes, and Mrs. Crabapple from The Simpsons, it is very easy to believe that teachers are just walking textbooks, or playback machines, or mindless dictators (ok, maybe I can be a little dictatorish sometimes). But these descriptions are limiting, because at the heart of teaching is creativity.
