9 Lisa Howells, Technology Integration in Barcelona, Spain


2 Comments

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.

Reaz Shaheed provides great input into his approach towards his school’s BYOD program, LMS platform selection, wireless infrastructure and leadership of IT initiatives in an American independent school in the Asia region.

I thank Reaz moreover because we had our conversation twice. The first time we got in contact I messed up and failed to properly monitor the audio recording and ended up with something that I could not use.

I know a lot of IT Directors and Digital Literacy Coaches all over will glean some great information from this conversation.

#6 Scott Tombleson – Going from US to Alexandria, Egypt as Tech Dir

When I interviewed Joseph Christie a couple of weeks back I was surprised to find out that he is moving on from his current post as Tech Dir in Alexandria, Egypt to Dubai. Interestingly enough his replacement is pulling a double feat by first being new to the Tech Dir position, and secondly moving from the US for his first experience working abroad. I had to talk to him!

Fortunately he agreed!

Here is our conversation. We cover things such as how to prepare as you ready yourself and family for the move abroad. We also cover topics such as Tech Dir evaluations, software and tools assessment ideas and how to go about planting your feet as the Tech Dir in a school.
