Education Week: School Leaders: Don't Let Your Teachers Lose Heart - 51 views

  • Survey teachers. In the spring, as you consider programs for the following year (or years), send out a survey to teachers asking them to rate the areas where they need help. Pick your programs accordingly. You won't please everyone, but this is a chance to address your teachers' real concerns.

      I like this idea. It will help set our goals for the next three years.
  • Take something off the table. Teachers are being asked to do more without letting go of something else. Surprise your teachers before school next year and strike a program that was assessed to be ineffective. Your teachers will love you for easing their load.

      I agree with this, providing the teacher uses a school account, not their own personal account, as this would open up lots of other issues.

      I don't know how much I agree with this. I reckon that I would rather deploy statusnet on a server, as it is free, takes only a little amount of technical ability (or you could perhaps recruit the help of a computing teacher if you have access to one) and it then gives you, or some other trusted individual/group control and ownership of the data.
