Educational Leadership in the 21st Century (ACLD Approved)
Educational Leadership in the 21st Century is a hybrid professional learning group that provides both face-to-face and interactive e-learning to support exploration and discussion of school leadership in our students’ technological 21st century world. School leaders review best practices, examine leadership behaviors, and develop strategies to better support their teachers. Administrators work together to better use technology to support teachers and improve student achievement. Participants discuss ideas and strategies with other leaders in the course and apply them to their own practice. Extension activities provide opportunities to explore more in depth topics of interest.
  • Module 1 provides an opportunity for participants to consider their own strengths and challenges as a leader. They explore strategies for fostering a learning environment that leverages technology to help develop students’ 21st century skills.
  • Module 2 explores how web-based tools enable administrators, teachers, and students to collaborate and communicate with each other and the world. Participants consider how online communities can create positive environment, discuss and learn best practices to protect against online threats and misuse, and explore how technology and policy can work together.
  • Module 3 provides optional extension activities to explore topics that are expected to transform teaching and learning in the near future. Leaders can complete full or partial lessons on the topics of evolving and more mobile online technologies, online learning, and electronic textbooks.
