Welcome to the DigiLeader Wiki!

This wiki has been created to support the 'Technology for the Non-Technological Leader' and 'Digital Citizenship and Global Collaboration' combined Cohort at the Learning 2.011 Conference held in Shanghai, September 8-10, 2011.

Cohort leaders: Julie Lindsay, Toni Olivieri-Barton

Guiding Questions:
  • What is a digital learner profile and continuum for learning where both teachers and students can be challenged through logical and supportive standards and goal setting?
  • What are the features of an educational digital learning environment to support this learning?
  • What strategies do we need to foster better learning using digital tools our schools?
  • What does collaborative learning and digital citizenship look like in a global context?
  • What are the emerging technologies coming into schools? How do we manage these?

This cohort will explore what learning does and can look like in our schools with a view to developing better leadership strategies to implement a successful digital learning environment. Moving from the traditional view of technology, learning using digital tools is now be more connected, communicative, collaborative and creative. To feel the power of learning while digital, educators also need to be connected, develop personal learning networks, and co-create multimedia and other products. As barriers diminish and collaboration occurs across classrooms and across countries how do we define global digital citizenship and how do we plan for and manage these technology rich learning environments?

Enduring Understandings:
Participants will:
  • Develop a better understanding of how emerging technologies including Web 2.0 can support 1:1 learning environments
  • Examine essential conditions for learning using technology and start to frame strategic planning goals for a digital learning environment (DLE)
  • Explore connected and collaborative learning as a foundation for all learners
  • Define global digital citizenship needs (including policies, guidelines and expectations while learning) within a DLE
