Looking back to move forward: A process for whole-school transformation

By Mark Sparvell for the Microsoft in Education BLOG

Today’s schools are faced with extraordinary challenges and opportunities. Chief among these opportunities is the chance to rethink and reinvent education to support our most valuable asset: our youth.

Navigating the ever-changing world of school transformation, with the goal of improvement, requires understanding what must change and perhaps even more critically, how to best implement change.

As part of Microsoft’s mission to empower every educator and every student to achieve more, we have outlined both a framework and process to effectively help school leaders create whole school transformation. The Microsoft Education Transformation Process is a proven, comprehensive process that can help fast track system-wide transformation by summarizing decades of quality research.

The Microsoft Education Transformation Framework

The Microsoft Education Transformation Framework identifies ten critical components of transformation to plan and implement change, and is supported by a comprehensive reference library of research findings, case studies and best practice examples.

Microsoft has worked with leading academics to developed a series of whitepapers which show examples of successful transformation and how technology can enable progress under two broad areas: Leadership and policy and 21st century pedagogy. You can use these white papers to define your scope and open a discussion with stakeholder.
