We are pleased to be hosting this leadership course next week. The school will be visited by a group of school leaders from across the region to explore the ways we have worked with ICT at Priestsic. The course has been very enjoyable in the past and we look forward to meeting some more colleagues next week.
The course is described on the NCSL site as being:
Designed by school leaders, the Strategic Leadership of ICT (SLICT) programme gives school leaders the tools to draw up a strategy which places technology at the centre of learning and teaching. The programme combines analysis of key issues and school visits with thinking and peer discussion. The Primary SLICT programme has been specifically developed to address the needs of primary school leaders.
It will be a good opportunity to engage these school leaders about social media and the role they may consider it to play in the leadership of edtech in schools. I certainly will be talking about how my blog and further network has impacted on my day to day work.
Please help contribute to this discussion by answering the following two questions in a comment:
- In your opinion what is the most important aspect of successfully leading ICT / Edtech in a school?
- Why is a personal learning network of professionals important to classroom teaching?
Join in the debate and let us know your thoughts – the course is being run on Wednesday 23rd January.
