Supporting Apple Technologies in K-12: Techniques for successful technical team conversations

It is hard to believe another school year (in the United States, at least) has the end of the year insight already. With that in mind, I’ve been reflecting upon this school year as well as others in the past and put together a resource about some ways technical-focused teams can better understand the impact technical decisions have within the classroom.

The aim of this resource is to share a 12-month guide where elements of Plan, Act, Ask and Reflect steps with activities and prompts can help guide teams to increase communication and collaboration with individuals across all parts of the organization. I’ve heard lots of stores where educators run into roadblocks of “IT did …” and hopefully the items in this guide help eliminate those moments.

This isn’t a passive guide; rather, each month contains activities, reflections, areas for you to add your own items and the last two pages contain blank templates you can use to fit toward your organization. I really hope you customize this, share what you have learned, and even contribute your own thoughts and ideas since each organization is unique in their needs but have a wealth of experience to share.

You can find Supporting Apple Technologies in K-12: Techniques for successful technical team conversations in Apple Books. I look forward to hearing your successes!

Such a needed and helpful book Randy! This is a wonderful approach to solving all kinds of “tech issues” and/or communication problems between tech teams and classroom educators. Thanks for the share!
