  • Promote the effective vertical articulation of educational technologies in support of the curriculum.
  • Collaborate with school leadership to create world class student-centered learning environments.
  • Act as a tireless advocate for STEM. Support enthusiastic teaching staff in the development, management and assessment of projects and initiatives.
  • Research, model and share best practices for successfully teaching with technology.
  • Ensure that schools meet the ICT technology requirements of the adopted programmes (PYP, MYP, DP, CP) and take an active role in documenting evidence in line with accrediting service requirements.
  • Demonstrate best practices in the classroom by assuming a teaching role for several periods weekly.
  • Drive staff ICT professional development:
  • Create and lead a staff professional development program so that it is aligned with both the ICT requirements stipulated in the employee core requirements as well as the ongoing objectives articulated for and by schools and departments.
  • Identify and organise training opportunities that align with strategic ambitions and make them available to staff.
  • Administer a database to collect data and allow for the real-time monitoring of compliance with program requirements.
  • Develop tools, metrics and methodologies to measure program impact.
  • Manage educational technology initiatives and innovation:
  • Support and guide projects that demonstrate and confirm Ecolint’s position as a leader in educational technology innovation such as the development of online course provision.
  • Recognize technological opportunities in education and play a leading role in their successful and meaningful introduction.
  • Establish partnerships with organizations and experts with whom the school can continue to benchmark and incorporate best practices.
  • Oversee campus ICT service and support delivery:
  • Assume line management of the ICT helpdesk technicians.
  • Collaborate closely with both school leadership and Foundation ICT to assess ongoing ICT needs/issues and recommend fit-for-purpose solutions.

  • Foster compliance with ICT policies and procedures to assist with efficient service and support provision.
