Recruitment and retention is a huge issue for school leaders, but could better, more relevant CPD opportunities keep some of your best staff engaged?
4. Build the right team
Early adopters, laggards, luddites: each nursery, school, university, college or workplace has its own unique mix. No different to any other form of leadership, building a strong and balanced team around you, with honest communication, will be key to your success.
3. Be Pragmatic
Every school has its own unique set of circumstances and restraints. Be pragmatic about working within your own bounds to create a culture of digital leadership (and impact) that is truly sustainable.
2. Understand what your aims are
A legacy of poor investments in hardware when times were ‘flush’ has given digital leadership a bad name, with vanity projects outweighing efficacious projects within schools. Having a robust framework to establish and keep track of your strategic objectives is essential.
1. Know yourself as a leader
Eric Sheninger is probably the leading self-proclaimed digital leader in education in the world. But that didn’t stop him being a huge sceptic just a matter of years ago. ‘I was the principal who didn’t believe in any of this. I wrote the policies that blocked social media.’
With The Edtech Podcast about to reach its 100th episode we will be releasing our daily lessons on digital leadership from guests on the show over the first 12 days of December, including important change management, budgeting and training tips for your own workplace and teams. We will then seamlessly and retrospectively crow-bar these into the format of “The Twelve Days of Christmas”
