Someone You Should Know
If you don't know him you should. Doug Johnson has an extensive website of Information Technology handouts, links, words of wisdom...I even bought his book called "Machines are the easy part: people are the hard part." A technology educator's bible. This book has such practical advice (with great illustrations from his son). Really, if you are a technology director or a teacher using digital information in the class room it's a MUST READ. One of my favorite mantras of his is "Technicians do not make policy. Technicians do not make policy. Technicians do not make policy. Policy and rules regarding technology use should come from educators, not technologists. Of course, smart educators will get lots of input from their techies before making policy." So says Doug...get the book it's great.
