What do you think are the biggest challenges facing academies today?
Collaboration and communication will continue to dominate many conversations. How do you make it easier for staff and students to work together within and between Academies?
How can technology help overcome these challenges?
Successful deployment of cloud technologies should ensure that both collaboration and communication are optimised. This is, however, not as easy as it looks. Simply throwing new online tools around will not get the job done. This is a 'moving house' situation where users are being asked to work in fundamentally different ways.
What advice would you give to someone attending the Academies Show on 20th April?
Ask lots and lots of questions.
What will you be talking about in the Teacher Tech Demo Zone at the Academies Show?
I’ll be running two sessions in the Teacher Tech Demo Zone. The first session will look at change management, discussing how you can turn a digital vision into reality through change management. The second session will focus on how The Elliot Foundation worked with RM to move their 22 academies to the cloud with Google. With contributions from Elliot Foundation staff this session will offer a first hand account into some of the ups and downs of the journey so far.
Mark’s change management session will run from 10:00-10:25 and repeat again 13:00-13:25.
Mark’s session on Google, RM and The Elliot Foundation will run from 11:00-11:25 and repeat again 14:00-14:25.
