I came to realize this when some of my recent articles were published in both the K12 site and the Higher Ed site - www.eschoolnews.com and www.ecampusnews.com (Even though my experience is in a K12 organization and I write primarily to that audience.)
Higher Ed Article
I have long believed that the technology part of change is relatively easy. It simply takes some time, money and a small(ish) team of tech savvy individuals. However, the human side is much larger (as many more people are involved) and much more complex as each person comes from a different perspective and brings a different set of skills and attitudes.
Perhaps there should be more collaboration and sharing of ideas between these different levels of education?
