Leadership

Leading the Change

As more and more schools become technology-rich, whether that be full one-to-one implementation or just more devices showing up in your school, the way an administrator leads the changes around the integration of technology has a direct impact on its success.

 

So, why should administrators care about technology for learning? Technology is not only a key part of today’s world, but it is key to setting students up for success in the future when used as part of the learning experience.

 

The role of administrators in the process of integrating technology in meaningful and purposeful ways is vital in setting the stage for both teachers and students to understand the importance of technology in the world today.

 

Often times, one teacher at your school will want to include meaningful and purposeful integration of technology in their classroom before Chromebooks, tablets, laptops, or other connected devices are introduced to the school. This could be the beginning of your school becoming technology-rich. Listen to why the teacher wants to bring technology into their classroom and visualize not only how it will help students in that one class learn, but how it would look if each teacher were using technology to help enhance the learning in their classrooms.

 

Having a positive attitude towards the inclusion of technology can make the uptake of new technology at your school more successful. As a leader at your school, if you’re on board with changes and emulate technology-forward behavior, it encourages teachers and other administrators to get on board! Technology will continue to be an important part of our lives as time goes on, making it that much more important to make your school a technology-rich learning environment.
