A permanent feature of each CLASSworks project are the meeting for principals. During these meetings progress and points of attention are discussed. We, as DEAN, emphasise the essential part principals play in the success of the project at each meeting. Without a clear vision from school management it is difficult for teachers to make the right choices and experiment in the class with new teaching methods and the use of ICT. We help principals to set realistic goals and emphasise to them that it is important that teachers feel supported. Together with the principals, we discuss how they can do this within the existing hierarchy.
