Jenny Connected

I can see that automating some of the administration processes associated with teaching would be welcome, but I am having difficulty seeing what could be more important, as a teacher, than interacting with students.

Being a leader without being the boss

Net-Map Toolbox

We’ve all been there and maybe you are there today: You feel responsible for the success of an initiative, change process or project but have little or no formal authority to tell people what to do. Which ones can you realistically develop (changing your race or gender are obviously less likely than changing your level of expertise or grumpieness)?

Power structures

Ken Carroll

Apply the map of ’power structures’ on anything and you can conjure up gruesome power relations - sex, gender, football - and construe them whichever way you want. In terms of process, such a widescale change in education would involve a massive level of complexity that no-one really understands and is all but untenable in institutions that were designed to teach, not to change. Often, e learning is being used simply as a new way to automate old processes.
