2 Map the digital environment

You will now revisit your scenario planning activity, first started in Session 1, Section 1.1 [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab.

Activity 2: Scenario planning

Timing: 25 minutes

Following on from your previous work on scenario planning, you now need to develop (write, draw, create) two scenarios for developing your school’s digital environment. In one you envisage your school responding positively to the change factors for developing the digital environment (the positive scenario); in the other you envisage your school failing to respond or responding in a negative way (the negative scenario).

After you have described and elaborated on (and perhaps drawn) your scenario as much as you can, think about the decisions you would need to take as a School Leader if you were operating in the world described in your scenario.

As a result of developing your scenarios and reflecting on them, what key actions need to be taken at your school?

Add these to your Action grid (only use this link if you haven’t already downloaded the file).
