Leaders, teachers and educators are currently working in a technology rich environment where devices and tools are a plenty. The dilemma for these educators is to ensure that effective pedagogical practices occur where the digital tools are used to enhance and support student learning opportunities and outcomes.
For leaders it requires a systems thinking approach where the big picture of pedagogy is the paramount focus and the digital tools are the enhancers of the pedagogy. With this big picture in mind, leaders can target resources (human, physical, time and money) to ensure that teachers are enabled to develop their digital pedagogical practices effectively and support these teachers to lead the digital pedagogical revolution in their sites.
For teachers it requires a change in thinking in that the digital tools are the enhancer for learning and support the best pedagogical practices in class. Teachers require time, professional learning, collaboration with peers and engagement with the digital technologies at their site in order to implement and habit form effective digital pedagogies.
The Digital Pedagogy Leadership Conference will provide a platform for Leaders, Teachers and Educators to come together to share, discuss and develop their Digital Technology plans moving forward.
