First time Principal!!

So I was thinking I want to be able to honestly record and reflect on the journey I am embarking on as a first time Principal...I didn't necessarily want the full reflections to be in a public space...then I remembered this space that Hazel set up...as close to the VPLD as it can get:)So I figure I will reflect here!My first reflection is on how I got here...and boy has it been a journey!I am in my 7th year of teaching and have been a DP for 4 of those years...so my journey has been rapid and…See More

Profile Information

What is your profession?
Principal
What is your interest in ICT Enhanced Learning and Teaching?
In my current and previous roles I have found that ICT enhances learning in all areas
For students it allows flipping the learning to an anytime anywhere model and facilitates personalisation of learning to accelerate progress

For adults it is the same...PLD can be accessed anytime and the pool of people you can learn from and with increases exponentially

The thunderbirds seems to represent how I feel at the moment as I start the 16 day countdown to officially leading learning at my first school as principal! Though the paperwork has started already!!

I've been at my new school twice this week to begin connecting with my team, meeting students and joy of joys writing contracts! It was the contracts that caused me to finally realise, holy heck, I'm a principal... when I finished the contracts and went to turn to my principal to…
