General Bio:

I have been in education for 13 years. My educational experiences include teaching Middle School Science and Math; High School Computer and Business education; Director of Math, Science and Technology; Chief Information Officer with responsibility for K-12 Data and Assessments; Adjunct professor, Keynote speaker.

I have been invited to present at numerous conferences on Leadership, Learning and Creativity in education, Social Learning: The Future of Knowledge Creation and Building Your Personal Learning Network. Recently, I have served as a moderator for the Global Education Conference, panelist for a career and networking event for recent college graduates and panelist for social media in education conference at Long Island University.

I completed my doctorate at Fordham University where I studied Knowledge Management for Institutions of Learning in an Age of Networked Intelligence.

Here is a description of my two most recent keynote addresses this summer.

In this keynote presentation, Bill Brennan will promote the next generation of Professional Learning Communities - Professional/Personal Learning Networks. These networks allow groups and individuals to acquire information and share solutions within a dramatically larger community. He challenges us to look beyond the surface barriers technology may present to the opportunities that knowledge sharing and fluid interaction offer us and our students. Paramount to Bill's initiative is the unyielding belief that Learning Networks are key structures and practices for continued student, teacher and administrator growth in this age of technology natives.

The Death of the Technology Committee

The Death of the Technology Committee,

the Birth of Something Much Better

 

Have you ever asked yourself, “What’s the purpose of a school-wide or district-wide technology committee?”

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been doing that.  And, the more I ponder this question, the more I wonder, “Why would I want a technology committee? And, “Are technology committees just outdated…

The Learners vs. The Learned: Which one are you in 2013?

"The Peloton of Learning"



Ten years and thirty pounds ago, I was a pretty serious cyclist. In fact I had competed in over 50 triathlons, and spent many long weekends riding the North Shore of Long Island. As a result of my participation in triathlons, I developed an admiration for cycling, and fell in love with…

Keep Your Eye on the "Prize"

Posted on December 19, 2012 at 7:30pm 1 Comment

First blog post since finishing my studies http://wbrennan.wordpress.com

Since September 2009, I have been immersed (I mean really IMMERSED) in my studies at Fordham University's Educational Leadership, Administration and Policy program. If you have been in a doctoral program, surely you have heard the statement - "Keep Your Eye on the Prize." And, you probably know that "The Prize" comes in the form of that new…

Mr. Brennan:

I apologize for not getting back to you sooner but there was some electronic problems here because of the strong electrical and rainy storms here. I just want to say thank you for your welcome. I will try to keep you and the network informed of my doings on a weekly basis. Again....Thank you for your welcome.

Mr. Brennan:

I feel that this network is a very powerful tool for not only the dialoguing of school leaders, but the improvement of the practices in administration both here and worldwide. I am currently plying my practice globally, for I am a UN Advisor of Global Education through the International Agency for Economic Development, an NGO of the UN. I have gained more understanding of the principles of leadership through not only face to face, but, in this century of e- everything, networking. Thanks for creating such a strong network of inspiring individuals.

Peace

Hi William,

With your work in Technology for Port Jefferson Schools, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service. Here’s a public class recording conducted by Nellie Deutsch on Technology Integration.
