Data Use, Technology, and Educational Leadership
I like this NPR article on why workplace meetings are so bad. It definitely has me thinking about how to improve meetings at my job, as well as what my leadership students ought to be doing when collaborating at work or around coursework.
But I also glanced at the comments section, and I’m wondering something else. Who are these commenters? What motivates a person to share agreement or disagreement to the world at large? Boring vignettes about how boring their meetings are? At least in my research on Twitter, I saw people who seemed to know or want to know each other. This seems a step removed.
In light of how many Twitter users claim that blogs and blogging are a key piece of their learning, I’m also wondering if it’s time to explore educators’ comments in blogs. What would I find? Blind (dis)agreement? Collegial banter? Vitriol?
