Digital Technologies: From Vision to Action
Armistead, Stuart
Teachers and Curriculum, v16 n1 p7-15 2016
The interest and uptake in utilising digital technologies in education appears to be exponential. With the rollout of ultrafast broadband and the development of the Network for Learning in New Zealand, school leaders face the challenges and opportunity of deciding when, what and how they go about implementing digital technologies in their schools. Based on evidence from an interpretive study involving three school leaders of new schools, the alignment of their organisation's vision for teaching and learning and use of digital technologies is explored. This study suggests that digital technologies have significant potential to enhance learning opportunities within an explicit and shared vision of what a learner needs to be successful in their lives.
