This Wednesday: Join me for a chat on the phone about adopting technology

Ewan McIntosh conversation
Ever wish you could discuss how a blog post might actually be applicable in your own school? Now's the chance, with an opportunity to join a phone chat with me and other educators from around the world this Wednesday.

Earlier this month I published my thoughts to date on what works best for school leaders (or anyone, given a word-change or two) wanting to bring their staff on board for behavioural, procedural or technological change. It's the first of a series of thought pieces with practical next steps for Cisco's GETideas platform.

My GETinsights 'Office Hours' chats

This Wednesday, at 9:00 AM PST/12:00 PM EST/4:00 PM GMT, you can join me and fellow educators for a discussion of the points raised there on the telephone and/or on the computer, by registering for the 45-minute Q&A session beforehand.

My "Office Hours" session is designed to take the wide brushstrokes of the blog post and talk about how it might apply itself in your own setting - the idea is that we can all learn from each other's stories, barriers, and opportunties. It's also a chance to challenge or pick up on points that need expanding from the blog post.

I hope you can join us. If you're West Coast US, it's the beginning of your day, East coasters can join at their lunch break and European teachers can pop in at the end of the school day. Those in the Far East can think of it as their bedtime story ;-) Any questions, just leave a comment here.
