Just in Time Learning for School Superintendents
Saturday, October 19 2:45 PM-3:45 PM Location: Salon Jarry
Presider: Joanne Duchastel, JED New Media inc., Canada
Abstract: Although the role of the superintendent is commonly cited as a keystone in school improvement, it is not the traditional role of times past. This presentation puts forth a more encompassing and collaborative perspective on leadership, suggested by Peter Senge (1999), that it is the ability of a group (not an individual) to sustain the purpose it has begun. This session presents the World Wide Web as a conduit through which superintendents can deliver more timely, more extensive, and more contextually appropriate resources to their administrative teams and teaching staffs.
