Whether it’s a change to school strategy or the introduction of new technologies into classrooms – change is vital to achieving success.
But how does change affect teachers and students?
Manage that change and you shouldn’t have a problem according to Tariq, a head teacher who wanted to introduce laptops for students in all classrooms.
“I recognised the potential of technology to support effective learning but it was a bit of a challenge for some of my teachers. It also introduced a whole raft of issues around security, student misuse and disruption but we put measures in place; extra training, support and new processes that helped to ease the school through the transition.”
Tariq’s school ultimately embraced the change and continue to look for creative ways to meet their aims – he created a culture of innovation throughout their school by implementing effective change management..
