How To Build a High-Performing Digital Team

How To Build a High-Performing Digital Team | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

 

Digital skills are in high demand and short supply. But first things first — how do you define a digital team when nearly everything is digital?

 

Digital teams are responsible for developing, testing, and implementing a strategy to reach and engage target audiences through digital channels like web, mobile, and social. While other groups may draft the messaging, a digital team works hand-in-hand with marketing and product leaders to curate and create digital-first content strategy. Most often reporting through the CEO or CMO, digital teams may also be responsible for implementing cross-channel analytics, surfacing relevant emerging trends, and providing comprehensive guidelines. As institutions have weathered the seismic communications shift from managed brand broadcast to real-time community interaction, digital teams have stepped in to manage listening platforms and identify opportunities for engagement. Finally a successful digital team will build a strong partnership with IT, who owns critical technology infrastructure and associated services.

How can we start structuring how to let go of control? "The less educators try to control what kids learn, the more students’ voices will be heard and, eventually, their ability to drive their own learning."

Nancy White's curator insight, August 21, 2013 1:31 PM

I love the fact that Diana responds to teachers who ask her when she just "tells students stuff" -she suggests that if you spark the interest, they can do the research. And...this leads to more ownership and engagement. This is where student curation begins! Great tips for creating a culture of inquiry.
