2013: Leadership and strategic planning for e-learning | NAPP Kōrero 14

Started by Karen Spencer 22 Aug 2013 3:36pm () Replies (350)

Planning strategically for the integration of technologies across a school community can be complex, challenging and rewarding by turns. A principal will draw on a wide variety of competencies to balance the needs of learners, staff, the community and infrastructure. Increasingly, many schools in New Zealand are turning to the e-Learning Planning Framework to help inform that process.

In this Leadership story from Enabling e-Learning's media gallery, Tony Zaloum and Mark Quigley, school leaders at Orewa College, talk about how they have juggled a number of complex dimensions as part of their e-learning planning [transcipt on the Enabling e-Learning site]:

This kōrero will unpack some of the attributes and competencies that e-learning leaders seem to have, and explore ways in which the framework can be used as a smart tool in your review and planning processes.

There will be two webinars [the second repeats the first] as part of this kōrero, which you can register for below:     Webinar 1: 11 September   |   Webinar 2: 30 October

Our key question: how can principals take an active role in their school’s strategic planning to use technologies as part of effective teaching and learning?

    reading your remarks about the essential part a principal must play in the process of developing the introduction of BYOD in the classroom made me aware, Steve, that the qualities and skills required by principals in this area are really no different than the skills required in any change management they are leading; the qualities described in your last paragraph would apply to any change management situation wouldn't they?

    Thanks for the prompt Julie. I haven't yet made it onto twitter. But your comment about the necessity for principals/leaders to be "at the very least in the space where dynamic leaders are connecting and growing" made me feel guilty! See you on twitter.
