Hough, Michael
International Association of School Librarianship, Paper presented at the School Library Association of Queensland and the International Association of School Librarianship Conference incorporating the International Forum on Research in School Librarianship (Brisbane, QLD, Australia, Sep 27-Oct 1, 2010)
This session will focus on the dilemmas and challenges of providing effective leadership skills for modern schools with digital information and communication technology (ICT) capabilities. It will review the selected challenges of engaging different generations of staff in ICT based learning and recommend strategies for effective leadership of ICT based schools. It will particularly focus on the issues of how a librarian and a library can assist to provide relevance and appropriateness of ICT based proposals and programs, and suggest ways to implement leadership policies which enable senior staff to remain accountable whilst all the changes enabled by ICT based learning are occurring within a school. A bibliography is included. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
