The Eight Cultural Forces - The lens & the lever - The Learner's Way - 15 views

  •  
    This unavoidable and irreducible complexity means that schools are challenging place to study, to understand and to manage change within. Even for the teacher who spends everyday inside the school there is so much going on that unguided observations and the plans based upon them come with no guarantee of success. - We need a lens and a lever to manage this complexity. -  Such a lens is offered by the 'cultural forces'.

Or, is something else at play here?

  • In this work, I have realized how truly important the role of principal is in building, not only in creating a positive culture, but an innovative one.  
  • Often times, as the principal goes, so does the culture of the school.
  • It is unlikely for an entire school to be “pushing the edge” if the principal or administrative team is not helping to pave the way for their community as they learn alongside of them.

  • o create a visual that discusses the correlation of the school mindset on technology innovation in learning, and the alignment it has with administrator support, professional development, and the corresponding hardware/infrastructure within the school/classroom.
