Adminstrators and Technology Wordle

I  just completed the JHU/ISTE School Administration and Supervision graduate program. What makes this program unique is the partnership between Johns Hopkins University and ISTE.

The partnership between JHU and ISTE aims to maintain the depth and focus of the face-to-face School Administration and Supervision certificate offered through the JHU Teacher Development and Leadership Program, adapt it to include a focus on instructional technology, and to offer it in a Web-based format that builds on CTE’s research-based approach to online learning.

Having just completed the program I was very interested in a tweet I received from amjohnston. Ann asked her PLN the following question, “Which words would you use to emphasize an administrator’s role in technology?” She then created a Wordle. Below is what Ann created.  As a future administrator it is helpful to see how folks view the administrator’s role  in technology. If you see some missing words, add them to the comments and I will pass them on to Ann.

Send a digital card to anyone who has an iPhone with ecardlets. This is such a cool tool. In three steps you can send someone a card on their iPhone.

1. Choose a card, personalize it and provide the recipients mobile number (AT&T only)
2. ecardlets will send a the recipient a text message with a link.
3. Recipient opens the link and views the card.

What’s neat about this is the card responds to touch. When you open the card in your browser window you use your finger to swipe the card open. You can also embed a widget that allows your readers to send a card directly from your site.

Imagine instant delivery of your holiday cards. Cards are available in the following categories or you can make your own by uploading your own image:birthdays
