Questions

Give your response with an explanation and your reasons.

1. What did you find most challenging during the CCL project? 

·         One of the most challenging elements for me was the planning of the iTech plan and ensuring that this was detailed enough to be able to start the project.  Once we started the project, this plan ended up being extremely useful however not knowing what direction the project was going to go and what apps etc. we would use was difficult to plan for initially.

2. What was the biggest benefit of participating in the CCL project?

·         One huge benefit to me, my staff and our students was the development of new teaching and learning strategies.  I feel that our students learning and progress has improved as a result of more confident and innovative teaching strategies.  This second scenario has certainly supported this through the development of independent learning skills.

3. What have you been able to achieve? What are you most proud of?

·         I am most proud of the achievements I have mentioned above.  This for me is our core business as teachers and should underpin all of our work.  I am also proud of the final products that our students have produced from the OSKA movies of ‘This is just to say’ or the table tennis bats.  The products created may not have been possible or certainly made to the standard they were, without the devices and our work during these projects.

4. How will you take the work forward? How will you disseminate your work to others?

·          I feel that this is now a key element of the legacy of the project.  Staff development is key to building capacity and sustainability in staff use of the devices but also the newly developed teaching strategies.  My plan is to build a rolling programme of staff training and support with the students at the heart of it.

5. 2 Top Tips for other teachers 

·          1. Using technology can have ‘bumps in road to begin with’.  There will be lots of hurdles and hiccups along the way but the benefits are huge once you get to grips with it so stick with it.

·         2. Consider carefully how you are going to monitor the progress of your students whilst using devices.  How can you evidence the educational benefit, learning and progress of the devices in your lessons?
