Kia ora koutou, talofa lava and welcome...

interconnected woven circlesThis kōrero invites you to think about those leadership skills and understandings which might be important when planning to resource e-learning in your school. We have all heard stories of schools investing heavily in technologies first and then deciding afterwards how they will be useful...or inviting students to bring in their own devices before considering how this might support the curriculum.

We know that e-learning is driven by curriculum and pedagogy - so what does this mean for leaders who need to grow a kete of services and technologies to support this in their school? 


Some resources to kick start this mahi...


From Enabling e-Learning Leadership, Dr Cheryl Doig outlines the change process and explains how to sustain change. As you watch, ask yourself what kind of leadership capabilities would be needed to do this and how does this relate to resourcing?

Our key questions...

  • How might principals grow their capacity to lead the resourcing of e-learning?

  • How might your decisions about school resourcing of e-learning impact on property, personnel or finance?

    How do Principals/Leaders ensure their elearning is sustainable?  Just a few thoughts...

    *  ensure elearning purchases and PD is embedded in the strategic plan

    *  Ensure you have an inspirational teacher (or yourself) who can drive this in the school

    *  Keep up to date with the new elearning tools, ideas which is displayed throughout various websites.

    Thank you for the webnair opportunity last week, what a fabulous way to run PD across the country.  Throughout the year I have been struck by how we have so many teachers who are lacking in IT knowledge and yet so many schools have been involved with IT contracts, what has happened to all our IT leaders?  SUSTAINABILITY.  Surely this is  a key word.  Lets US as leaders set expectations, grow the vision and empower our staff about 21 century learning or else push them so hard that they consider a change in career.  My benchmark is ' would I be happy with that teacher teaching my child and knowing my child is being prepared for 2020?'

    What influence do you have?
