The personal learning network for educators
The leadership really has to come from the head - a teacher cannot work in isolation. It should be built into performance management etc.
However, finding something that actually hooks a single teacher may mean that one teacher gets involved, after that it needs a drip feed to build confidence and expand the range of technologies used.
If one can work with the head to find that hook, find a way to make his or her role easier and more productive it may be easier to get the staff involved.
It is quite a battle though!
In the UK at least ICT is part of the National curriculum so the children are entitled to their lessons - not to provide them is not helping the pupils and also teachers are not fulfilling their obligations. The head is responsible to make sure teacher so meet the needs.
I'm not sure which comes first: the techno culture or the ed reform culture. Maybe in tandem? A lot of Sir Ken Robinson's resources speak to the big idea of the need to change how we teach our children. I think that's the starting point, because integration of technology into the classroom is not the end or goal of the process. It's the vehicle that helps teachers to make change happen, but the driving force is really the need to prepare our students for the world that is rather than the world that was. Once teachers realize the bigger goal, I think many will understand that using tech is a tangible way to move into the paradigm shift.
