What prevents administrators from shifting?
Some take aways from the discussion:
-There is limited number of U.S. professors (six) who work in school leadership who focus on technology and forward thinking education. Our education leadership programs are not preparing our administrators to lead schools towards School 2.0.
-There are education leadership grad school standards that don’t include much on managing change in education.
-Higher education is just so slow to change, to bring about programmatic change.
-Barriers: So many items on the plates of our administrators that it is overwhelming to ask them to set up learning communities and support learning 2.0 initiatives.
-Administrators don’t have to know all the ICL tools but need to know how to support the curriculum development that supports learning 2.0.
