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?

    I agree. With things piling up on top of you it is quite nice to be 'forced' to do some professional reading when a notification comes through. Are you following EDtalks?

    With regards to the Principal being active in strategic leadership, I agree with those who have said that it is about giving it a go and creating systems within school admin that 'encourage' staff to branch out in using technology through modelling possible contexts. However it is also an opportunity to empower some staff and provide them with a platform to take their first tentative steps in becoming educational leaders; identifying strengths in others and then creating an environment for these to flourish is a key aspect to being an effective Principal.
