The future is here now—check out these pictures of the future–but some times, it’s hard to move organizations along. And, some times, it’s not the organization that’s the obstacle but certain folks—like technology directors—who have trouble saying, “Yes, let’s do that!” That’s why my motto is to do something different, but making that motto REAL is another thing altogether.
I love this Dilbert cartoon that Doug “Blue Skunk” Johnson posted:
Dilbert comic strip’s character Mordac, The Preventer of Information Services, is regrettably an all too recognizable figure in many schools…A major cause of this disconnect is that educators and technologists have valid but very different priorities when it comes to technology. As educators, we need simplicity, abundance, convenience, and ubiquity. As a technologists, we must provide security, reliability, and adequacy.
