Technology and Leadership
Reflect on the required resources for Week Five, especially the articles from Edge (2012) and Wagner and Ice (2012) and your personal and professional experiences in relation to the points conveyed in the resources. Discuss how instructional design principles and theory influence the ability to make informed decisions regarding the use of technology in support of learning and, especially, leadership. Use additional resources in addition to those provided with Week 5 to support your evaluation. Providing specific examples or a scenario to illustrate your understanding of the question and incorporating opposing views to demonstrate critical thought is encouraged.
Hint: You might consider including a concept map with a tool such as Bubble.US to visually convey your understanding.

Thinking critically throughout your initial post and replies is encouraged. In this and every discussion, for optimal engagement with your learning peers, you are encouraged to reengage in the discussion by replying to posts made in response to you by the instructor and peers
