Another aspect of being an effective leader for instructional technology is staying up-to-date with the latest trends and ideas in that area. One way to do this is to subscribe to RSS feeds having to do with instructional technology. By following my RSS feeds this semester I learned a lot of helpful technology tips and I was able to impart that new-found knowledge with many of my fellow teachers, both at school and with other Music teachers in the county. Another way to stay up-to-date is to communicate regularly with those in the field. Not only have I learned a tremendous amount this semester from my instructor, Dr. Fuller, but I have also learned so much from my classmates by reading their own visions, SWOT analyses, and action plans for their schools. Their points of view helped me create my own vision, SWOT analysis, and action plan for my own school. This was an invaluable activity for an aspiring technology leader such as myself.
