In the post “Digitized School — First we need to talk bad IT in the classroom” I wrote about one of four parts of the school's digitization that I call Hygiene, that is Infrastructure and Resources. Here I was thinking briefly to present the four parts with image support.
The image is meant to be used as discussion support when we talk about school digitisation, to know that we are on the same plane, mean the same things and what the purpose is. In other words, it is not comprehensive, but gives an indication of how I look at the different parts of digitisation.
How many times have you seen similar statements like:
“Just make sure you take advantage of - and streamline your business with the help of digitization!”
Of course, nothing is said about how, or what parts to digitize, and what effects you expect in the different parts.
With this image we can point to - and ask the person (and ourselves) about what part it means and how it intends to change with the help of digitisation.
The four parts are, according to me, Hygiene, Administration, Pedagogy (which includes two subcategories, Pedagogical Administration and Teaching) and Professional Development.
I'm not going to write anything more about these in this post, but take a look at the picture — and download and use as you like (CC 0) if you want — and ask yourself a few questions:
Which parts do you think are most interesting for all the different professions involved in school, from the top of politics to the bottom of the floor?
What skills to determine whether systems within the different parts are good, do you think needed - and who holds it already now? Are these who are responsible for the “purchase” now?
All parts carry to some kind of professional development (continuing training). All doing takes time. When you introduce something new, is there always a calculation of how much time is saved in the end or shows what is getting better?
Are all these systems necessary and why do we have them?
Regarding administration (both) - do we use the data we collect in such a way as to justify collecting it?
Concerning resources (money and training) - in which part does the largest pot end up? Shouldn't it be in the teaching section? Or what? Is that what it is?
