Qualities of a Literacy Leader

Fullan (2005) uses the terms “system thinkers in action” and “new theoreticians” to describe leaders at all levels of the education system who “are working on the real problem of transforming real systems, learning by doing it” (p. 14). Their goal is to establish patterns of interaction that help people to work and learn together, collaborating to build their own capacity to learn, change, and improve so that they can achieve better outcome for their students.

Ki te Aotūroa (2008, p.125)

“Learning, to be effective, must enable the learner to ‘own’ the learning process. Owning a new skill, concept or understanding can only be achieved through a process of deep engagement with the skill, concept or understanding; practising it, trying it out, using it.”

Michael Absolum (2006, p. 11)
