Some fantastic Friday reading: Over at AMLE Magazine, TIIE director Penny Bishop and associate director John Downes are talking about the power of teaming in supporting successful technology integration in schools:

Today’s middle school teams use a wide range of technology tools to achieve six important goals: to develop their teacher team; to design effective workflows; to establish a strong team culture; to involve families; to manage technologies; and to continue learning about new technology tools.

It’s a contemplative, well thought-out look at how educators, administrators and students can all support each other in making the most of the powerful new tech in schools and classrooms.

They also swung by AMLE’s middle school chat on twitter, and fielded some questions from the twitterverse on just what teaming for tech can — and does — look like. We’ve got the Storify recap here. Enjoy!
