After developing and creating module 4 I realized that when discussing technology their needs to be a clear structure as to not become boggled down in the details. As a person who loves technology one of my biggest issues is that I become so involved on small details that I have forgotten to focus on the big picture. While creating the current state architecture I began to realize how many of the systems at our school work together for a common goal, my narrow view of looking at technology through the lens of a teacher started to go away and I began to see our district as a full functioning organization with many working parts. I knew this before but my mentality was so focus toward the classroom that I dismiss to a certain extent any other business system.
Once the current state architecture was developed I began to develop the future state architecture and this is where I began to see a big need for our district. Our need at this time and this is something we have begun to have discussions, as of this week on, is the need to integrate our many systems into less platforms and have greater access to information and data because of it. This type of discussion from my part would not of happened if I hadn’t taken a look at the future state of the district from many different business systems. Narrowing your view to the classroom is important because that is where the vision and mission of the school should show results but expanding the view to all other business systems allows us to see how everything has an influence toward that goal.
