Sailing Safe On Rough Waters – Digitalization Support For School Leaders

Sailing safe on rough waters – Digitalization support for school leaders

In the scope of the SAILS ERASMUS+ project, ESHA has developed a Captain’s Handbook for school leaders.

Based on the continuous input and concerns communicated by school heads around Europe reflecting on challenges revealed by the school closures and other difficulties they face, this guide will help you and your leadership team what topics to consider when developing a comprehensive digitalization transformation strategy, how to diagnose your current situation, what strategies are essential to have for a school, how you can evaluate your progress and how you can continuously improve adapting to your current challenges. There will be helpful external tools and resources recommended in the handbook, that will allow you to customize everything to your own local and national environment. We are providing recommendations on how the leadership team can build on all school stakeholders and make sure that the innovation is done in an inclusive way ensuring the satisfaction of all involved.

ESHA has closely worked together with Parents International, who were responsible for developing a handbook for parents. Find the handbook here: Sailing Master’s Guide

In the scope of the project there is a mockup social media website usable for training purposes, where users can experience and find solutions to imitated scenarios by bots. Find the website here:

EA is responsible for developing a handbook for teachers, this deliverable is to be published in December.

At the ESHA General Assembly in Trim, Ireland the members had the chance to learn about the structure and the content of the handbooks in detail, as well as the legal background, and current research data was presented. The challenge of digitalization is an important topic in almost every school, although the main challenges and the opportunities differ, we have aimed to provide a tool that is adaptable to the local contexts.

The project consortium had a meeting on the 8-9th of November in Bilbao, at the University of Deusto, where we have discussed our current progress and the next steps.

We hope that you will find these resources useful.
