  • Dr. Jon Becker, week of October 2. Jon is an Assistant Professor at Hofstra University and is another of the very few educational leadership faculty members that really gets this technology stuff.

  • You have to post about K-12 tech leadership and/or ed leadership preparation
  • You have to add commentary / opinions (i.e., don't just share resources / upcoming events)
