DigiLEAD: Supporting School Leaders to build a digital transformation strategy

DigiLead aims to upskill the school leaders’ competencies to develop digital transformation strategies and support the teachers and students to improve their digital skills and competencies.

Project Number: 2021-1-BG01-KA 220-SCH-000032711

Funded by: Erasmus+       Duration: 1/1/2022 – 1/1/2024


Challenge

The pandemic is accelerating digital transformation in education and work. With more than 90% of the student population learning partially or fully from home during the lockdowns, there is a stronger need than ever to reform schools and support teachers and students develop digital skills and competences (UNESCO, 2020). According to the 2nd Survey of Schools on ICT in Education, although one third of students in primary and secondary education attend schools that have written statements on the use of ICT for pedagogical purposes and digital technology (European Commission, 2019, p. 98), only a few European education systems refer to school development plans in their digital strategies. In European Education systems, school leadership rarely holds a prominent position in national strategies, and their training and support are even less. Consequently, there is a strong need to train school leaders to understand the complexities of digital transformation and how to implement digital strategies in their schools.

Innovation

DigiLead is one of the few projects that focuses on supporting school leaders to develop digital strategies in their schools and help teachers and students enhance their digital skills and competencies.

Action

The Digital Transformation Strategy Toolkit includes guidelines and rich educational material and aims to support school leaders, decision-makers, teachers and school staff to jointly build and implement their digital transformation strategy.

The toolkit is available HERE.

The training course provides school leaders with the appropriate skills and knowledge to develop and integrate digital transformation strategies in their practices.

The e-Learning platform includes all the courses for teachers, while the mobile app hosts gamified resources on digital transformation strategies.

The report includes lessons learned, good practices, case studies,  and policy recommendations that facilitate schools’ digital transformation. It includes the following sections:

  • Good examples of implementations from each partner country
  • Successes and challenges
  • Recommendations for practitioners
  • Recommendations for policymakers
