This workshop outlines essential skills for leadership, and offers practical
guidelines and creative solutions of building accountability into the planning and implementation process. Articulating vision and mission, managing change, and aligning technology to primary curricular goals are emphasized. A shift in perspective from technology to information and communication planning is a critical next step. We will explore opportunities for “leader as a role model.” We will also explore various opportunities for professional development design including empowering educators to join global professional communities.

The workshop will include response to the following critical leadership questions, such as:

How do we retain our educational and social values during this transition?
How do we redesign the culture of learning from a classroom with walls to every classroom expanding to global boundaries?
How do we build capacity within our schools for massive opportunities for professional development?
How do we engage our parent community, board and alumni as strategic partners in this transformation?
What should every student know to be prepared to make meaningful contributions to society?
What is the emerging definition of life-long learning?
How can we design more motivating and rigorous student work?
What is the balance of online learning with face-to-face learning?
How can school leaders provide the role models needed to set the tone and expectation of this transition?
