New Capabilities for Cyber Charter School Leadership: An Emerging Imperative for Integrating Educational Technology and Educational Leadership Knowledge
Kowch, Eugene
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v53 n4 p41-48 Jul 2009
Cyber charter schools (CCS) and cyber schools may soon become the most "disruptive innovation" in the education system (Christensen, Horn & Johnson, 2008) so the author urges educational technologists to take up the imperative to develop new administration knowledge among the students along with educational technology skills to support future cyber and cyber charter schools (Kowch, 2005b). To begin, this paper summarizes mainstream administration thought trends for non-administrators. On that foundation, the author then sets out some major cyber-charter issues and trends along with a host of new organizational, policy, and instructional leadership capabilities for the next generation of CCS leader hybrids. This paper concludes that a systemic change mindset and knowledge of both educational and administrative technology disciplines are prerequisites for developing integrative, holistic school leader capabilities so essential for cyber charter innovators in the coming decades.
