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

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 believe that the Principal needs to demonstrate leadership in a range of different ways - either show he / she has some skills to share or work alongside others to learn - I like 'in the space' idea from Julie.  I have developed an ICT committee and we have worked through making the decisions for our LMS - began with Moodle, investigated Google and settled on Microsoft 365.  We are really happy with Microsoft 365 which includes Office and many innovative apps that can be used  They are developing and improving in response to teachers and are ready and willing to come into school and support / teach us.  The team believe it has an expansive functionality which is useful for all curriculum areas in the school.

    Our next step is to move into OneNote and OneDrive which is superb for class interactions and storage.  We are developing a range of different teaching strategies to have ICT support learning.
