Abstract: The paper discusses the use of blogs for self-directed, personalized, and collaborative learning in a masters’ course in school leadership where personal blogs have served as major vehicles for learning. The blogs provide an interactive teaching and learning environment for off-campus, part-time school leadership students facing the challenge of integrating digital technologies in a school system where the hardware is increasingly ubiquitous but pedagogical practices remain traditional. The object of the course is to develop capacities for instructional leadership by engaging students in learning processes that require the use of technology in novel but gratifying ways. Socio-cultural theory provides the theoretical underpinnings of this practice. Activity theory (Daniels, 2006) elucidates the need for school leaders to develop digital leadership competencies. Wenger’s (2001) theory of communities of practice will be used to analyse the process and outcomes.
