Last December, Jean Tower (director of technology for Northborough-Southborough Public Schools in MA) shared a description of what would be discussed at CoSN’s CTO Forum, naming it “The Undiscussables of Technology Leadership”: If your people are too afraid to talk to you about what’s happening, challenge your thinking, then the group is broken. When I tweeted a question about this and posted it in the Google+ Community Scott McLeod started on School Leadership, Scott asked, What do you mean by undiscussables? To this question, Jean replied: The undiscussables are the conversations that take real courage to initiate. When we want to really challenge the status quo. We sometimes need to go after the sacred cow practices and those are tough discussions – almost, undiscussable.
