The identification of instructional weaknesses in classroom practices is seen as a method that strengthens and validates program goals. The SWOT analysis is tedious and time consuming, but a very necessary practice for building effective program protocols. Securing student achievement requires a collaboration of the school community, and ensuring that teacher and student needs are reflected in newly initiated programs is part of the process not an after-thought. With the collaboration of the school community, I believe policy can be changed for the better, and that available resources must target appropriate goals.
Our student population reflects a global and digital learner profile, and in order to have some understanding of what our future will demand of our education model, I must be a digital learner too. The communication tools, such as Jing, my Weebly page (at lmozer.weebly.com), and my RSS reader feed (until the Google registration requirement) regularly provided me with policy and information regarding eLearning. My research efforts and my role as an educator better reflect current literature for review of Web tools, the changes in student populations, and the expectations society has of education.
