7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education

7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education | HP Digital Literacy Conversation | 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.

Mobile Viewers Spend Majority Time With Long-Form Content (Stories)

Mobile Viewers Spend Majority Time With Long-Form Content (Stories) | HP Digital Literacy Conversation | Scoop.it
Long-form content dominates all device viewing, reported Ooyala yesterday, when it released its Global Video Index Q4 2013. "Long-form" is considered content that runs 10 minutes or longer.  And even longer form is 30 minutes or longer. Watching content for longer than 10 minutes is  61% for desktop video viewing, 60% for [...]

OK -- here's the latest research on mobile video viewers and they are not spending time watching short 3-minute stories. They are watching stories that last lots longer.


Good news! But don't throw the baby out with the bathwater -- share stories that are both short and long. Just don't be afraid to create longer stories. Because truly, some stories just take longer to tell, and often shaving them down to a couple of minutes really guts them..


So share some short gems and add some long stories -- whether written or as videos. And dig into this research so you understand exactly what mobile video viewers are watching in various devices.

What a great dialogue about the pluses and minuses of both reason and emotion/empathy.


You are probably asking yourself, "What in heaven's name does this have to do with business storytelling?!"


It has everything to do with it -- because in business we bow to the god of analytics and logic. And in marketing/branding we bow to the god of emotion. But in our business storytelling we need a dose of both.


Working with storytelling is not just about learning the mechanics. It's also learning about how to think better about storytelling and what's behind it all. This TED video falls into the 'better thinking' category.


IMHO, understanding how we are easily led astray down either path of pure logic or pure emotion allows us to be more aware of both. Then we can learn to leverage them both well. It's all about working each side of the brain to build stronger more compelling stories.


This is an interesting video to watch that makes great points about humanity. It makes us smarter about being human. That ultimately makes us smarter about stories and can lead to better storytelling.

These are 4 essential principles for effective storytelling and filmmaker Ken Burns explains all really well.


I don't call them tips, because they are more than that. They truly are some of the best ways to think and be with your business stories. Principles like Find the drama and characters of your story and let them speak; tell the story your own way; and find the format in the story -- as opposed to stuffing a story into a predefined one-size-fits-all structure.


To quote the article, "Burns says that storytelling isn’t so much a process of arriving at a previously determined end, but about an investigation of the material."


If you can get that thought, it's revolutionary. The quote speaks to the teller's ability to learn more about the story by continually reflecting on it, becoming more self-aware. That self-awareness leads to not only better storytelling, but also deeper listening and greater empathy/connection with your listeners.


There is lots of food for thought here that will help make you a better teller of your business stories. And there are some terrific clips to illustrate the points. Have fun with this one.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 15, 2014 7:31 PM

What is one of the most powerful leadership/business stories you can share? Yep -- stories of failures, mistakes, and disasters.


Yet they rarely get told in our perfectionist society. Oh to admit we screwed up! Yet sharing stories of your failures humanizes you like no other story. On hearing a mistake story, every listener will say to themselves, "Whew, if he/she can admit to screwing up, so can I." or "Wow, it's not fatal if I make a mistake -- and I'll also learn something valuable in the process."


So take heart -- use these quotes to build your confidence and start sharing a few of your failure stories. They are a good shot in the arm. And thank you to author Ekaterina Walter for putting these quotes together to share with us all.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 16, 2014 1:15 PM

What a great post this is by Donna Moritz for Social Media Examiner. No doubt about it -- if you want more traffic, creating visuals that trigger a story in someone's mind or that tells a story outright is the way to go.


Moritz shares with us visual storytelling principles that get the job done. And she includes lots of examples which I love because we can actually see what she's talking about. Yeah! The examples alone will give you plenty of ideas for what to do.


And the principles are spot on: be consistent and quick, deliver on your audience's needs, use an obvious call to action, plus 2 more. This is a meaty article with tons of good points to make, so dig in.


Heads up: ads are not visual stories. Instructions for putting on makeup are not stories. Tips are not stories. But as long as any of these are structured and crafted as a problem and a resolution with a main character and a challenge to overcome, they can all be stories. Single photos and quotes can trigger a story in someone's mind: "What a beautiful lake. That reminds me of the time when we visited Crater Lake and I fell off the trail..." So pay attention and make sure you stay in the land of stories. Why? Even greater connection to your audience.


My only wish is that Moritz had shared tools to use to create visual stories. I recently wrote an article on this for Curatti that you can access here. It's a list of my favorite tools, or articles reviewing top tools. I'll also bring the Curatti article into this curation.


OK -- you've got lots to play with so have fun!

I'm still on vacation but while catching up on emails this morning I did find a couple of fab articles to share with you. Yeah!


This first one is all about the importance of a business having a fab story to tell. No news there. What is different is that the person giving this advice is a venture capitalist. The point of the article is that without a story, money and opportunities are left on the table. If you want someone to invest in you -- whether it's a money-guy or a customer -- you've got to have a story to tell.


Now here's the rub: most businesses suck at telling their story. So use the guides available in this curation (search on 'story crafting') or the various books out there on business storytelling (like my book Business Storytelling for Dummies) to get your story straight.


Enjoy this quick article and I'll be fully back online on 5/5.

The maker space can narrow the gap between school and work. 

 

"There’s a lot that students don’t know about scientists, an information gap that must be filled if they’re to imagine a future in science for themselves. Addressing the country’s shortfall of students in the STEM disciplines begins with persuading students that scientists are people, too."
