This past month I was asked to be a Provocateur for ISTE’s 1st Leadership Summit. Target Audience: Administrators from all over the US & Canada. We went through the IDEO Design Process over 2.5 days in search of 1 Big Idea that would move the needle in our districts. Some attended as team, others as singletons.
My role for Table 2 as a Provocateur was to facilitate the conversation, keep things moving, provide clarity, poke the bear, challenge thinking. It was a great fit for my personality.
The Summit schedule included lightning talks, chats, design blocks in chunks, Big 3 ideas for discussion. It was intentional , thoughtful & well executed. Here are my notes:
