CLPL opportunity – Driving forward and embedding whole school digital solutions for Primary and Secondary practitioners who lead/support the digital journey across their school.

This course would be suitable for Primary and Secondary practitioners who lead/support the digital journey across their school.

This progression of 4 sessions will build practitioner digital skills by:

improving own digital skills using online collaborative platforms as Professional Learning Communities

improving colleagues’ Digital Skills by looking at ways to involve staff in an online PLC, for a real life practical application

exploring how we can use the collaboration skills we’ve learned to enhance and support Learning and Teaching. What’s the potential impact for our learners?

exploring how Digital Solutions, including Glow, can help us engage and collaborate with parents/carers or the wider global community

It was the great automotive engineer Caractacus Potts who said, “Teamwork makes the dream work,” but in the 21st Century, what does teamwork even look like? How can we embed collaboration across the curriculum to support and enhance Learning and Teaching in our schools? Indeed, how do we prepare our learners for life, learning and work in an increasingly digital global community?

There is an expectation that participants will set goals for their own school and work towards them between sessions. Participants will also collaborate and support each other in meeting their goals.

Camelon Education Centre, 2-4pm, 10/10/19, 12/12/19, 30/01/20 and 19/03/20 – participants are expected to attend all 4 sessions.

Sign up details will follow in September.
