The Challenges of Digital Leadership
McLeod, Scott
Independent School, v74 n2 Win 2015
Because digital devices and online environments can simultaneously be transformatively empowering and maddeningly disruptive, the work of integrating digital learning tools into schools is usually difficult and complex. Common challenges arise, however, and can be thoughtfully addressed by proactive leadership. In the end, technology change in schools is not about the devices. It's about robust, visionary instructional leadership. School leaders need to be active, engaged participants and modelers who recognize that digital learning is core work, not an ancillary add-on. Educators can no longer simply delegate things to school technology coordinators and integrationists and be done with it all. School leaders must take a visible, hands-on leadership approach to the technology-suffused learning and teaching that students deserve today.
