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?

    The principal & Senior Leadership team definitely has to be the drivers of this.  Scout the staff and see who may be the 'experts' or inspirational teachers are that can also drive it.

    Apps and tools are always changing so one needs to be 'up to date'.

    Allocation for Professional Development and budgets for ICT as this can be expensive.  BYOD is a fabulous idea too.
