As noted, I’ve accepted the Director of Technology position at the American School in London. My family and I will move to London this July, and Brad Baugher (our current Middle School Technology Coordinator) will become the Director of Technology at Oregon Episcopal School. In addition, our current Upper School Technology Coordinator is taking on new challenges in academics and residential life next year.
As a result, Oregon Episcopal School, a K-12 private independent school in Portland, Oregon, has two technology coordination positions open for the 2007-2008 school year:
Middle School Technology Coordinator: a full-time, ten month position which typically has two extra weeks of work and salary added in the summer. Twenty to forty percent of this position involved teaching Middle School computer classes, and sixty to eighty percent of this position involves leading the MS laptop and technology program. The administrative part of this position involves working with grade teams and parents, hands-on work with the operations and management of the MS student laptop program (iBooks and MacBooks), and planning for future changes and opportunities. The ideal candidate would be interested in how students learn, have a critical view of technology and its benefits and weaknesses, and be successful with collaborating with the strong MS faculty as the laptop program evolves. Background experience should include both teaching and work with educational technology. Through regular tech team meetings, this individual will also be involved with school-wide technology issues and the transition of MS students to the US program. This position reports to both the MS Division Head and the Director of Technology.
Upper School Technology Coordinator: a full-time, ten month position which typically has two extra weeks of work and salary added in the summer. Forty percent of this position is focused on US technology operations (ensuring reliable technology for US faculty and classrooms, and individual students), and sixty percent of this position focuses on technology integration support and research in the US. Recent initiatives have included the US faculty laptop program, a centralized comment writing system, and the Edline online course information system. Upcoming initiatives include the support of increasing numbers of student-owned laptops on campus, recognizing and supporting individualized technology work by students, and working directly with both departments and individual faculty to improve technology use in the US. Background experience should include both teaching and work with educational technology. Through regular tech team meetings, this individual will also be involved with school-wide technology issues and the transition of MS students to the US program. This position reports to both the US Division Head and the Director of Technology.
