Learn how to lead a technology strategy at your school

Education technology can help schools reduce workload, promote efficiencies, and support evidence-based teaching and learning approaches. The potential of education technology might not be realised without a carefully designed and implemented strategy, aligned with the school’s overall strategy and goals.

On this course, you will learn how to develop a technology strategy and communicate your vision as a school leader. During this process, you will consider infrastructure and security, make decisions about devices, and design a CPD program for your staff.

What topics will you cover?

  • How to align a technology strategy with existing school strategies and communicate your vision effectively

  • What technical and security considerations need to be considered for effective implementation of a technology strategy
