Times Have Changed – a Chief Information Office in Schools is now Essential

For the first time in a while, I will be talking at a conference of IT professionals (ITx Rutherford October 2019) rather than teachers. I will be speaking and attending as an employee of Wellington Esat Girls College who are supporting my attendance. My talk will build on the following…

The role of a Chief Information Officer is typically associated with larger organizations. Given many schools typically have over 100 staff and 1,000 students with at least two devices each and the increasing reliance on ICT services to deliver learning I believe the role of a CIO is essential. WEGC has established such a role over the last 14 months and coupled with outsourcing IT service delivery, dealing with information stewardship and looking to access authentic government data for curriculum delivery some lessons have been learned and a few questions raised.

Attending the conference also affords the opportunity to hear new ideas and learn from others. Should be fun.
