Sean Moroney (@seantm on Twittr) is well known throughout k12 independent international schools for his work with people, his relationships and his professionalism. I am fortunate that he took some of his summer time off to speak with me and allow me to record the conversation.

Sean is currently leading the efforts at the Vienna International School in Austria. During the conversation we touch on his approach at team-building and partnership fostering as he continues to push forward efforts to bring the school into a new way of using and exploiting technology for all it’s worth. Take a listen and learn new insights into tech integration and the planning that goes along in such a diverse and complex institution.

Andrew Taylor is part of the Humanities faculty at Vistamar School where I currently work.

I reached out to him because of the way he implements technology in the classroom. He does great work with students, and uses a lot of tools to keep them enganged and to ease his own workload, and is constantly talking to the IT team to find new ways of implementing technology in the classroom. I also wanted to know how an IT department can best support this type of teacher.

Andrew marks episode number 10, something of a landmark for me since starting this podcast.

Share this podcast with colleagues and give me some feedback to keep improving it.

I spoke to Lisa Howells a couple of weeks ago via Skype. What intrigued me most about her current position is that Benjamin Franklin Int’l School did not have an IT Director since I left in 2012 and only hired her last year. There was a gap between my departure and her arrival. Furthermore her position is totally new at Benjamin Franklin.

This is Lisa’s first post abroad and, though challenging no doubt, she is having great impact on that learning community over at Benjamin Franklin. Listen to her approach and how she continues to cement her presence at that school.

Tom Northrup came into the Benjamin Franklin International School in Barcelona, Spain, as the Interim HoS back in 2011. I was the IT Director there at the time, and the lessons he left me with are with me now as I continue to impact change where I go.

This conversation is entirely about leadership, and how to empower your coworkers, and everyone around you. I hope you enjoy this podcast and that you share it with your colleagues and leadership members in your organization.
