Roger Broadie, Martin Levins and Mal Lee have created a new a new forum – using Google groups – for those globally interested in advancing, researching and analysing the digital evolution and transformation of schooling.
We are looking at
- those leading the way in the pathfinder schools
- those monitoring and researching their moves
- the education decision and policy makers shaping future schooling and
- leaders at all levels within later adopter schools wanting to create the desired ever evolving digital school ecosystem.
It is appreciated there are many excellent forums that examine the use of digital technologies in schooling. There is no desire to replicate them.
The focus of most is however the micro usage of the digital technology within existing school structures and operational parameters.
Few, if any, address the digital evolution or transformation of schooling or its parallels with the evolution and transformation of other digital organisations.
Indeed there is in 2015 remarkably few forums supporting individual schools and their leaders undergo the desired digital evolution and transformation.
This new group will focus on the macro impact of the digital on the changing nature of schooling, on schools as complex adaptive systems, ever evolving, ever transforming, creating increasingly integrated and networked digital ecosystems that address the 24/7/365 holistic education of each child.
The desire is to use the collective wisdom of the forum get a better appreciation of the on-going impact of the digital revolution on schooling.
The desire is also to use a global platform like Google groups that allows for the in-depth discussion of an increasing complex scenario where our understanding of the new is limited.
The group is open to all interested, anywhere in the networked world that are playing a lead role – at any level – in the digital evolution and transformation of school ecosystems.
