School Transformation: The RED Framework

In order to successfully transform learning environments, teachers and school leaders must recognize and respond to the interconnected nature of pedagogy, leadership and technology. The RED School Transformation Framework was created to help teachers and school leaders to think more deeply about how to design integrated approaches to school transformation. It’s  a simple framework anchored in three areas which are usually planned for and implemented in isolation. In most schools, there are three different plans and three different people in charge of each area; the curriculum coordinator  in charge of pedagogy, the principal in charge of leadership and the director for technology, in charge of the technological infrastructure. Teachers and school leaders can more effectively promote deeper learning by avoiding  attempts to tinker with these areas in isolation. The RED Framework supports a more holistic approach that leverages the interconnectedness between Pedagogy, Leadership and Technology:

Relevance & Engagement lead to Deeper Learning in the area of Pedagogy

Relationships & Empowerment lead to Deeper Learning in the area of Leadership

Right Tools &  Equitable Access lead to Deeper Learning in the area of Technology
