How to begin Digital Transformation at School – after EduTech

No school is equal… Every Transformation is different   In all our time in working with schools it has become increasingly clear that no school is the same. Every school has different goals, different challenges and different priorities. That being said, all go through a remarkably similar process to tackle digital transformation, albeit with different processes and outcomes in mind. Last week at Edutech 2016 we presented the four, “not too simple” steps toward digital transformation to which just about any school can relate.  The reason I say they are “not so simple” is that at first glance it looks like a sensible linear approach to start digitising data and automating processes, but …

I loved Edutech this year with exciting presentations about how the digital world can change your brain (Baroness Susan Greenfield) and insights from students who have created their own apps/followers/companies all whilst studying for significant exams. But I was struck by the focus on classroom digital transformation.

In fact that same research from 2015 stated that 15% of interviewed organisations had yet to begin a formal digital transformation journey. Education has a double challenge in running a two speed transformation across the business of education and across the business of administration. Whilst the transformation in the classroom is happening naturally, driven by digital native …

Six digital leadership principles for schools

Michelle Narracott, Digital Transformation Executive, Fuji Xerox Australia In our earlier two posts in this series we explored the impact the digital age is having on leadership in education and how school leaders can assess their digital maturity and direction. The digital age is changing Australian schools and in the process, testing leadership. Digital is now part of every leader’s mandate and is not left to chance. This delivers the opportunity to try new leadership styles and build new capability. The traditional principles of leadership remain valuable and needed for schools to succeed. These will never change. However, the changing times, as well as society’s reliance on technology, demand new leadership practices to …

Assessing your school’s digital maturity

Assessing your school’s digital maturity

Michelle Narracott, Digital Transformation Executive, Fuji Xerox Australia In our previous blog post, we started a discussion on school leadership in the digital age. In order to be able to lead your school through this period of digital disruption it is important that educators are able to understand where there school sits in terms of digital maturity. The MIT Digital Maturity Model* The MIT maturity model which was created by MIT in conjunction with CapGemini, is a useful way of taking stock, to identify how ready your school is to embrace and manage the wave of digital disruption. Digital maturity can be assessed by placing your education institution on an x axis of …
