Implementing Commonwealth Digital Education Leadership Training in Action (C-DELTA) with Pre-service Teachers (PSTs) in New Zealand
The proliferation of digital technologies (DT) has altered the landscape of education. With DT redefining traditional structures of information and knowledge dissemination, the challenge within the educational sector is to be sufficiently informed about practical and realistic ways that DT can be used to enhance the teaching and learning process. In this paper, we will explain how two university teacher educators (TE) implemented digital literacy (DL) courses with the intent of promoting digital education leadership (DEL) (Brown, Czerniewicz, Huang, and Mayisela, 2016). We define DEL as taking a leaderly stance towards digital education (DE) and advocate for individual as well as shared responsibility for digital practices. Through the notion of DEL, we are exploring the attitudinal influences of being knowledgeable, open-minded, critical, and ethical in the digital world. Our work allows us to expand ongoing discourse around DL and DE with the intention of promoting digital inclusion, equity and wellbeing.// Paper ID 103
