Leadership of Education Technology in Schools

Chartered College of Teaching via FutureLearn


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.

This course is designed for school leaders, especially those that are responsible for technology and teacher development. It would also be of interest to those in leadership positions in further and higher education.
