Topic: Leadership Issues
Okay, this is really not a Web 2.0 thing (unless you upload your Excel files to a Google or Zoho Spreadsheet) and I was intending to write about something completely different today, but then I checked my Bloglines subscriptions and found that Scott McLeod just posted a valuable link on his blog that I want to share with you. So, I'm scrapping my original plan and choosing to ignore the deviation from a Web 2.0 topic.
Educators are awash in data today. We collect it like maniacs. But then, what do you do with it? Sometimes you can get by if your IT department has the staff and time to generate reports for you. But what if that's not the case, or if you need to do some analysis quickly? That's when school administrators need to have some basic Excel skills under their belts. And, Scott has developed and posted a series of basic tutorials specifically for educators at School Data Tutorials. I highly recommend that you check it out and share with other administrators and teachers.
