Eastern Arterial Cluster Learning
Community 9 May 2007
What do you hope to achieve for your school, or
cluster by the end of your ICT contract?
Lifting Student achievement

Narrowing the gap….reducing within-school


variation in pupil outcomes.
To what extent is your programme owned by the
school leaders?
Each individual school?
The teachers and other staff of the cluster as a
whole?
How do you achieve this ownership?

Who are you as a leader, what is your vision,


style and your methodology?
How do you know this is effective?
How is the cluster working to combine that style
into an effective cluster leadership process?
Where does your facilitating team or lead
facilitator fit in this mix?
Up-skilling Principals.

"Ownership" of the programme

"Leadership"
Pedagogy/ICT skills

"Sponsorship" (sponsorship as a supporting notion)


"Sponsorship" (not just finding money) so that the cluster is well
supported, within its own community, and provided with the mechanisms
by which its infrastructure can evolve and its intended programmes be
resourced

"Fellowship"

Closing Keynote: Bruce Hammonds
“If you are riding a dead horse, get off,”
A few thoughts about the future and the past. We are at the 'learning edge' of great
possibilities but only if we change our minds first. What new ideas will you have a go at on
return to your classrooms? How will you involve ICT?

Questions:
To what extent is your programme owned by the school leaders? each individual school? the teachers and
other staff of the cluster as a whole? how did you achieve this ownership?

Who are you as a leader, what is your vision, style and your methodology? How do you know this is
effective? How is the cluster working to combine that style into an effective cluster leadership process? Where
does your facilitating team or lead facilitator fit in this mix?

If successful professional development is framed around the notions of "teachers for teachers" support and
needs based programme development, to what extent is your current programme reflective, individualised
(personalised) and collaborative?

What constitutes a well supported programme in the widest sense of "sponsorship". In your cluster, what are
you currently doing to make this happen?
