EduJedi Leadership Society
For Everyone in Education
Schools are not typically transitioning structure, only tacking on more tech. Leaders and teachers do not understand changing their practices from the vantage point of 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.
EduJedi know that 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. As digital curriculum Apps and systems permeate schools by the tens of thousands, schools lose all continuity of operation. Being “edgy” and counting accomplishment as a computer-for-everyone and unsustainable numbers of Apps guarantees returns for corporations – but not necessarily schools.
Becoming tech-relevant can be simplified.
The Right Fit
Schools need authentic arrival in the new “Experience Economy,” and skillful leadership. A new mindset and stable new basics are the solution to the barrage of products, distracting frameworks, and risky freebies. A proper redesign and complete understanding of what parents, students and teachers really need makes for a sustainable school that has mastered the tech reality.
Educators need the knowledge of the EduJedi.

What Does it Mean to be an EduJedi?
Becoming an EduJedi individual leader or school means you’ve moved beyond topics like “school reform,” past classroom focus and up into the “tech-blended institution.” Creating a quality culture, aligning strategy, connecting to stakeholders, requiring ever-more teacher training, layering on tons of new policies and programs – all the trends of the last two decades which have been failing despite everyone’s best intentions nationwide – are repositioned behind a designed for digital transformation.
