Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant

Poor technology leadership is usually just poor leadership | Dangerously Irrelevant | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

When a school leader neglects to allocate sufficient professional development time for newly-purchased classroom technologies, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader doesn’t provide adequate technical support personnel for a new 1:1 laptop initiative, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader purchases system-wide learning software with little thought given to long-term financial and instructional sustainability, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

 

When a school leader fails to ensure adequate parent education and support before initiating expensive, organization-wide technology programs, that’s not poor technology leadership, that’s just poor leadership.

Now, more than ever, we need local evidence from every TL practitioner regarding their contribution to teacher practice and student learning. ALA President Barbara Stripling makes presents a strong argument for the existence of school libraries, given the trickle effect their demise will have on public libraries, academic libraries, and the preparedness of young people to effectively contribute to society as creative, critical, ethical and informed citizens.

This is an important and timely document for teacher librarians worldwide. This document presents a vision-building blueprint for school communities to transform their school library into a 21C learning centre. Strengths of this document include the standards framework for building a vision, and the transitional growth continuum of indicators of success from Exploring through to Leading - this is brilliant!

This is a must read for all school library professionals and principals.
