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?

    I so agree Ra. I have a technician that comes once a week for a 3 hours do to sort out and manage all the network and servers tech issues. I am always running past him ideas, getting feedback and just discussing with him, getting his opinion from a tech perspective. This has been really good when discussing server upgrade, infrastructure purchases,' is this going to work with that?".. How can we..? He is full of ideas, speaks to me in laymans language and is honest. This helps us heaps in making informed decisions on what direction to go in.
