    I have spent some time reading through some of the posts here and agree with what has been discussed by most of you.  The Principal has an imperative role in the implementation of e learning planning and development within a school.  This doesn't necessarily mean that the Principal must be the e learning expert.  It is just important that the  principal and the Board have a shared vision for e learning and that staff know what this vision is.  Staff also need to have input into the strategic vision for e learning and the Principal needs to make it a priority to allow staff time to engage with new technologies or new expectations placed on them.  The e learning framework is a great place to start.  We looked at this as an e learning team this year and it was interesting to see where each of us identified where we would be placed as a school on the framework. It was interesting to see that we didn't have a shared understanding so this made me wonder if we actually know where we are heading? Where the BOT and Principal want us to be etc etc.  I think for far too long the vision has been shared with a very small number of people rather than the staff as a collective unit.  After all the ones that will ultimately be implementing and effecting change at the ground level will be our teaching staff.
