Week 1 Leadership: To Publish or To Present

My Capstone Action Research Project taught teachers at my school to use LiveBinders, a Web 2.0 tool that allows you to organize information neatly in a virtual binder. The following video is a preview of my project and you can read more about on my AR Webpage.

Now that my project is coming to an end, I am now thinking about my next steps in a leadership project about LiveBinders. My big dilemma about sharing this leadership project is whether I want to publish or present my work. If you would have asked me this question 10 months ago when I started this EMDT (Educational Media Design and Technology) program at Full Sail University, I would definitely have chosen to get my work published. Today I’m feeling much more confident and empowered by the knowledge and experience that I’ve gained from the 10 classes that I’ve successfully completed. I’m so proud of the work that I’ve put into teaching others about LiveBinders, and I’m even more proud of the positive results that I’ve gained from teaching teachers and students about LiveBinders. This makes me believe that I will be able to make a bigger impact if I have the opportunity to present my leadership project at a conference and hopefully inspire others to start using LiveBinders in their teaching practice.

  1. Gena, your work is amazing. I have been watching your videos for the last 10 months and became inspired to use live binders myself. The program is absolutely amazing and your videos did such a great job teaching others about it as well. I agree with you that presenting your work will have a bigger impact versus publishing it. I know that the teachers you work with greatly appreciate the effort you have put into your action research project so that they can grow in the ever-changing teaching profession.
