Search for Apt Folk to Interview
I’ve embarked on the writing a major work on the impact of the normalised use of the digital, in and out of the school, on the nature of schooling in the developed world.
The work will focus on the fundamental transformation of schooling that has occurred in those pathfinding schools which have gone digital in the last decade and moved away from the traditional paper based operational mode, the impact of the normalised use of the digital in those schools today and from that analysis identify the likely major trends and issues all schools will have to address.
The study will make use of the research undertaken in writing seven previous works in this general area, but conscious very little has as yet been written on the impact of digital normalisation, particularly on schools I’ve embarked on interviewing a cross section of some 50 -60 folk in the UK, US, Canada, HK, NZ and Australia who have played a leading role in those schools or who have observed the impact of digital normalisation on schooling, particularly over the last decade.
I particularly want to talk with the leaders of that as yet rare group of schools that have normalised, or near normalised the whole school, indeed whole school community, use of the digital.
I’m talking about schools not simply with the digital technology in every teaching room but where the digital is being used naturally in the everyday teaching by all the teachers.
I’m not looking for anything written.
I’d simply like the chance to garner the observations in a Skype interview.
To guide the thinking I’ll provide an overview of the areas I’d like to cover, as the desire is to address all facets of the school’s operations, thinking and relationships, not simply the teaching and learning.
If yours is a school that has either normalised the use of the digital or you know well the work and thinking of such schools and are happy to give of your time and thoughts I’d like to hear from you and then arrange a time in the coming months when we can talk.
