Education Executive Professional Development to Attain Authentic Expo Centers of Learning
Focused on Orientation to Education in the Experience Economy, Terminology and Practical Leadership Games
Schools are not typically transitioning structure. Leaders and teachers do not understand context from inside the greater tech and economic reality. Captured by the shiny objects and vendor ingenuity, digital change has been fraught with peril. It has added cost, added stress, and in many cases subverted learning.
When schools focus on being “future ready,” they’re not in the present. Administrators and teachers join a constant try-anything parade of new products, anxious half-way implementations, and increasing technology complexity without real change in results. Being “edgy” and counting accomplishment as a computer-for-everyone guarantees returns for corporations – but not necessarily schools.
Schools need authentic arrival in the new “Experience Economy,” and skillful leadership. Stable new basics are the solution to the barrage of products, distracting frameworks, and risky freebies. A proper “fit” in the local-global consumer culture makes for a sustainable school that has mastered the tech reality.
Becoming tech-relevant can be simplified.

The EduJedi Pact
We pledge to transformative relevance by co-opting the best of digital learning technologies, organizing people and resources for a student-centric and highly personalized experience, and to most importantly, leverage our human empathy to the best advantage for learners. We are EduJedi.
The 5 R’s: Our reasons for making this Pact include giving our schools and teachers a chance to:
- Reset. Computing device deployments and random software usage is insufficient to realize the efficiency and greater service that can be unleashed because of tech reliance. Joining the future requires a mindset change that compliments new social dynamics and economic drivers.
- Retool. Take practical steps for individual teachers and administrations to get to alignment across the bridge of change and retain relevance.
- Redesign. The entire experience of learning to provide sufficient core subject understanding while eliciting creativity, curiosity and a high degree of interaction.
- Reorganize. To change structure, schedules, and personnel in an orchestration that leads forward with challenging environments attractive to learners and parents.
- Rehumanize. By not compromising on the technologies, we highlight the most important asset, our ingenuity
