Scott McLeod helped co-create the first graduate program in the country that prepares technology-savvy school leaders. McLeod is co-director of the nation’s only university center dedicated to school technology leadership issues, the Center for Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education
(CASTLE). CASTLE’s groundbreaking curriculum has been shared freely with 15 other universities that have since used the materials to revamp existing classes, create new courses, and even develop new graduate programs.
In his podcast
(MP3, 17.5 MB), McLeod talks about how CASTLE’s program is different than others, the benefits and challenges he sees in making technology leadership courses required for all school administrators, and what the future looks like for administrators, technology, and blogging.
