Leadership in a Networked World
It is a privilege to be living at a time with the greatest exponential technological change that humanity has ever seen.
Ensuring our students can take advantage of the opportunities that will be available to them at a time when nearly all standardized work, from assembly line production to report writing, can be done by robots, is a complex and challenging responsibility.
How do we share our learning as we shift from a culture where learning is provided to a culture where learning is sought? Understanding the tools that allow us to connect with other education professionals, and effectively communicate and collaborate over physical distances is an important component of strategic leadership in our networked world. How can our educators build the skills they need to model the learning we want to see in our classrooms? How do we ensure that our students are ready to thrive in the digital economy?
As educators, we can leverage the power of connection through professional learning networks to support each other in creating the schools and communities of learning that will help our young people to thrive in their world.
