7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education

7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

As schools change leadership must as well.

 

With society becoming more and more reliant on technology it is incumbent upon leaders to harness the power of digital technologies in order to create school cultures that are transparent, relevant, meaningful, engaging, and inspiring. In order to set the stage for increasing achievement and to establish a greater sense of community pride for the work being done in our schools, we must begin to change the way we lead. To do this, leaders must understand the origins of fear and misconceptions that often surround the use of technology such as social media and mobile devices.

 

Once the fears and misconceptions are placed on the table, leaders can begin to establish a vision for the effective use of technology to improve numerous facets of leadership. The challenge for school leaders is why, how, and where to begin. Digital leadership is not about flashy tools, but a strategic mindset that leverages available resources to improve what we do while anticipating the changes needed to cultivate a school culture focused on engagement and achievement. It is a new construct of leadership that grows out of the leader’s symbiotic relationship with technology.

The end result will be sustainable change in programs, instruction, behaviors, and leadership practices with technology as a pivotal element. Digital leadership requires a shift in leadership style from one of mandates, directives, and buy-in to one grounded in empowerment, support, and embracement as keys to sustainable change.

 

From my work I have identified what I call the Pillars of Digital Leadership. These are the specific areas embedded in the culture of all schools that can be improved or enhanced though the use of available technology, especially social media. They present a framework from which any educator or leader can begin to harness the power of technology to change professional practice and initiate sustainable change.

Why Aren’t More Schools Using Free, Open Tools?

Why Aren’t More Schools Using Free, Open Tools? | digital citizenship | Scoop.it
One school in Pennsylvania is using open-source tools wherever possible to keep students close to the code behind the machines they use. This stance is opposite to the very restrictive policies of many schools, but could allow students more freedom to explore what makes devices work.

Five Ways for High School Seniors to Establish a Digital Footprint

Five Ways for High School Seniors to Establish a Digital Footprint | digital citizenship | Scoop.it

"Over the years, I’ve listened with interest as many have spoken to the importance of helping kids establish and maintain a digital footprint that they can be proud of. I know that some college admissions officers make a study of such things. I also know it’s not enough for kids to simply avoid certain online behaviors."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, March 26, 9:10 PM

We often talk to our students about their 'digital footprints' and where they lead. Life is a lot more trackable for kids who grew up on the Internet. However, this can be presented to them fairly negatively. Perhaps the idea should be, how do we help them to create a digital identity that they are proud of, that celebrates who they are, that highlights their strengths and capabilities, and makes those who wish to hire them sit up and take notice?

"When you discover that a teen in your life has posted something astonishingly inappropriate online and you find yourself asking, "What was he/she thinking?" you wouldn't be alone. But there's also little you can do to stop the practice. According to research at Pennsylvania State University, it's just the way teenagers approach their online activities. Whereas most adults think before undertaking a risky behavior, teens tend to take the risk and then seek help, said Haiyan Jia, post-doctoral scholar in the College of Information Sciences and Technology."
