“As principals, the quickest way to help students is to give teachers really good feedback.”
However, 2010 Outstanding Young Educator Brian Nichols adds, the feedback principals tend to give is a checklist of what teachers are or aren’t doing. Nichols talks about a pilot program using the iPad2 to improve the quality of feedback between teachers and principals. For this technology to be embraced as a means for examining and improving actual classroom practices, Nichols emphasizes that this process is never evaluative and always formative.
