Project Abstract

This Teaching and Learning Research Initiative (TLRI) project looks to develop knowledge and capability for innovative school leadership strategies that enable e-learning. The overall aim is to employ e-learning to support student achievement through stronger networks between schools, parents/whanau and the wider community. All five principals in this project have a strong desire to take advantage of Ultrafast Broadband in Schools (UFBiS) initiative and to share that nationwide. In order for the UFBiS investment to transform practice, there is a need for school leaders and policy makers to understand (a) more about what it is that successful school leaders do to implement school-wide changes with digital and mobile technologies, and (b) how leaders who are less technologically-confident can be supported to plan for and use UFBiS and the Network for Learning (N4L) for educational gains.
