School ecosystems need to draw on four sources of knowledge: innovation and knowledge inspired by science (research and evaluation); innovation inspired by the development of new products and services; innovation and knowledge inspired by practitioners, teachers, school heads; and innovation inspired by users namely, students, parents, communities (OCED, 2012).

In this session we will explore how we can access and apply this knowledge when leading 21st century schools and implementing digital curriculum?  A number of key questions will be addressed namely;

  • which strategies can school leaders use when setting the direction on the use of mobile devices like iPads in the classroom?
  • what is the research telling us about the successful implementation of mobile devices for learning?
  • Many teachers need to make huge shifts in their pedagogy to use mobile devices to engage students and enhance learning.
  • how can school leaders support teachers to make these shifts in pedagogy and develop their technological, pedagogical and content knowledge ?

We need to lead by example and motivate teachers to transform their teaching and learning to incorporate 21st century skills? This session will provide both theoretical and practical insights. Participants are encouraged to bring an iPad loaded with the Edmodo App (www.edmodo.com) Please set up a free account before the session to access a set of resources generated from the TPACK iPad in Project in Schools (TIPS). We will explore how to use the iPad to create teacher made resources and how to redesign curriculum to have an inquiry focus and be more personalised.  The SAMR model will be used to set goals and guide teachers as they transform their teaching and integrate mobile devices.

Note: Participants should bring their own iPad to this session as iPads will not be provided Please ensure you have administrative rights to install apps on the device and the Apple iTunes account password. You will be provided a list of Apps to install prior to the workshop.
