Information Literacy Leadership

Dianne Yee and Marlene Ponjavic are sharing their leadership and vision experiences with us. Their embrace of strategic approaches to creating opportunities for new learning relationships is inspiring. The import of support from administrators, including a respect for the teachers' ICT competence, is highlighted. The significance of creativity and resourcefulness in using a range of technology is noted. Marlene makes a point of matching pedagogical purpose to the ICT resources at hand. Read their paper Information Literacy Leadership to see how she helped students to explore photosynthesis with GarageBand!

Ross Todd is reflecting for us on Dianne and Marlene's address to us. "How did you come to your mutual mandate?", he asked. Both ladies emphasize respect, trust, shared expertise and brave conversations. Tapping into underutilized talent in a school is critical.

  1. Each and every person can now think and develop many things with IT support though the person is not that much literate. Person can get more knowledge from IT support and its different great features with user friendly functionalities. That has brought a huge revolution in this world.
