The impact of network on sustainable school development
2007 (English)Conference paper (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
To study the impact of networking on school development, a comparison was made between a network and another project where the schools were part of an action-research project that was not connected with networking support.
In both projects surveys as well as interviews were used. In the comparison-project schools had been working for four years with problem based school development while in the network project they had been working with the same idea of school development just for about 2 years. Despite this the teachers estimate that school development and the idea of the school as a learning organisation have been realized to a greater extent in the network project. In sum, there is powerful evidence that the network is effective at facilitating school development, moving schools in the direction of becoming learning organizations, and creates more effective collaborative leadership.
