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?

    Having to be the person with the responsibility to creating a sustainable vision for elearning in the school is huge. Currently we are lucky enough to have a the input of an ICT industry professional. Our understanding of how systems function and therefore the choices we need to make around access have changed becuase of this. Having access to information and a level of understanding that far outstrips even those on staff who are very enthusisastic and pedagogically knowledgable has been beneficial. By combining theses areas of expertise we are able to plan for a future where we are in control of the steps we take, not reacting to the changes as they happen.

    Business make use of this knid of expertise. We're lucky that at the moment we are getting a lot of input for very little. There must be ways to encourage this kind of interaction without it costing schools.
