Going from a Good School to a Great School


I would encourage each of you to read the book by the author Jim Collins, "Good to Great". This book was wrote for business but many of the topics work with schools or social sector also. In fact Jim wrote a small addition "Good to Great the Social Sector" I find that his work also can be used in education when it comes to Technology. Technology will not be the difference in any school making it a great school or on the other side holding a school back from becoming great. Over the next few blogs I will talk about his work and how I see it relating to technology and helping accelerate a school to going from being good to great.

Here is a link for some of Jim Collins work

I've heard about this book before. However, I've never read it. I'm going up north for Superbowl weekend. I should find it before I leave town. I'm sure that it will come in handy up in the woods.

I look forward to reading more.
