09:50 coolcatteacher : Good schools transcend people. However, right now it is difficult to see.
09:51 coolcatteacher : Where many of us are an island. It is the pioneers that must set the status quo and eventually the status quo will take over.
09:51 mjclausen-1 : @coolcatteacher so true, the really dynamic programs are so personality driven it is hard to imagine them without the present leadership
09:51 coolcatteacher : and then transcend the leaders, however, at this juncture I think it is still largely pioneer- driven.
09:52 coolcatteacher : I think empowerment is key.
09:52 coolcatteacher : clap clap
09:52 jstearns : distributive leadership is essential
09:52 coolcatteacher : How many people are there?
The whole time I was IM’ing Kristin Hokanson who was sitting by Louise Maine (who has a forthcoming simulpost on this blog.)
I find this interconnection fascinating and feel that we are making wagon trails that will become the freeways of tomorrow.
And everyone, please remember, that EVERYBODY IS A SOMEBODY in the edublogosphere. Come over, comment, post, and be a part. We don’t the resources and time to go to these conferences, but if they are free, join in, listen, and chat.
