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 agree that SLT should assist with driving this but I also believe that the expertise lies with others too. Aligning to ones strategic vision enables the  e- discussions to come to fruition. As for BYOD, I suggest the common understanding of the how it improves student learning in  the 21st Century needs  be at fore ore of this discussion. NetSafe have some interesting points to raise about this. We  probaby all agree that burying ones head in the sand isnt a useful approach to issues around technologies.

Join this group to contribute to discussions.
