Leadership in Education: In what areas schools can leverage disruptive technologies?

Following through our first episode of Leadership in Education series comes a casual fireside discussion among school leaders and talked about the topic: “In what areas schools can leverage disruptive technologies.”


Our guests:
– Karrie Dietz (Head of School, Stamford American School Hong Kong)
– Mike Gilmour (Principal, Knightsbridge House International School)
– Eugene Low (Head of Schools, The Grange Institution and International Preschool)


They generously shared their thoughts and practices on disruptive technologies in their respective education setup.

Here are some takeaways:

  • Covid/pandemic pushed everyone to blended learning or adapt technology in education because it’s necessary but generally it’s important to have it sooner rather than later.
  • There should be a balance on the way technology is being utilized.
  • There are manual processes that can’t really be replaced by technology such as social emotional aspect of each student/educator.
  • On a parent’s point of view the blended learning depicts a question if the children are learning enough?
  • Technology isn’t that disruptive, it’s the way we use technology in different ways. – Karrie D.
