I just discovered this afternoon that I’m listed in Janet Clary‘s list of women considered to be role models in educational technology, and there is even a special day (the Ada Lovelace Day) where folks spotlight women they feel meet their criteria. Wow I’m stunned to make her list, especially considering some of my own favorite role models are on this list as well.
So to extend this conversation I want to spotlight some of my other favorite women role models leading through educational technology that also deserve recognition:
Okay so yes, they are all school teacher librarians, media specialists, library information specialists, or some derivative of those terms, but they are all my friends, and ones I look up to and rely on all the time. They teach me, lead me, and keep me informed, and I am happy to have them in my reader. Icing on the cake — I can call them real f2f friends. Maybe someday I’ll fit into the shoes these women role models wear now.
