A five step buy-in from stakeholders is essential to ensuring SUCCESS when rolling out IT across the school curriculum.
But with stakeholders at varying stages of IT competency and engagement, how do you ensure that your plans to allow every pupil and teacher 1:1 computer access are successful? In our latest episode, Rachel Jones, e-Learning coordinator at King Edward VI School Southampton, discusses the challenges of embedding IT across the curriculum, when practitioners already have successful teaching practice. We discuss IT project planning and the school’s teaching success stories of using applications such as Autodesk’s 123d design app in the school’s technology department, and the use of augmented reality apps to teach the sciences.
Rachel shares her insights on using technology to support Special Educational Needs pupils and how to use technology to enhance your subject and professional pedagogy.
