The Power of Collaboration: Establishing Digital Change - Guernsey Case Study

Aspire2Be and Guernsey have collaborated over the past two years in order to transform the way in which technology is accessed and strategically deployed in schools across the island.  This session provides an overview, in the form of a case study, as to how G Suite can be deployed to impact teaching & learning in classrooms, across schools, clusters & local authorities.  Join us to learn about the Guernsey story and how G Suite is shaping teaching & learning practice.

We use real examples of delivery to illustrate how a consistent and robust vision for use of technology can be created that will provide direction and relevance to staff regardless of school setting.  

Learning Outcomes

 

  • Discover how our collaboration with the states of Guernsey has transformed pedagogy in schools.
  • Learn about the strategic vision of Guernsey and the formation of the Guernsey Digital Roadmap.
  • Understand how clear and relevant training can be accessible for staff with a mixed range of technical ability.
  • Explore various G Suite tools and how they can redefine current practice.
  • See real examples of impact and statistics that demonstrate the impact of our approach.
If you are looking to deploy G Suite in your institution or across a cluster/local authority, this session will provide you with tried and tested methods that can serve as a starting point to realising your vision.

Vision and Innovation - Design Thinking for School Leaders
Throwing technology into schools without a suitable vision or strategy can undermine the impact of a significant investment of time and money. Making technology embed in learning and productivity in your organisation is more likely if you target it around an understanding of the people in your school, how they currently work and how they would like to work. In the session we discuss design thinking, a process and set of tools for uncovering real problems worth solving, which can unlock the innovative abilties of everyone you work with. Post-it notes provided.

Productivity, Learning & Management Tips/Tricks with GSuite
Advanced/Intermediate (Beginners Welcome!)

We will explore a variety of add-ons and extensions for Chrome and Google Drive that can greatly improve our productivity. Do you find yourself in the need of sending mass personalized emails? Do you or your students often get distracted while you use your computers? Are you trying to reach the elusive Inbox 0 stage? Do you find your computer running too slow because of having too many tabs opened at the same time? Do you work with groups of tabs on regular basis and would like to quickly open all of them at the same time? These are just some of the questions for which I will come with simple to use solutions. Some of them can help us as teachers or admin, while some others could even be presented to the students.
