1. EA changed the way at look at education and my role in it. I now see both my school site and the district differently. A much broader view of how everything fits together.
2. A better understanding of why it is important to have an EA plan that is aligned with the goals of the enterprise.
3. The importance of effective communication and transparency.
4. An inventory of applications and criteria matter.
5. It’s fun to build a brick.
As an educator, I plan to use some of the EA processes I learned in my instructional practices. For example, the brick process can be used to determine which instructional practices are no longer working and which strategies might be better to deploy. As an educational technology leader, the EA course has changed the way I view the importance of planning for the future and that it is even more important to communicate effectively and efficiently, and to include stakeholders in the decision-making process.
