In this video, Kieran Briggs, Learning Platform Manager at the Chartered College of Teaching, explores the various technical considerations you’ll need to make as part of your strategy implementation.

Key Learning Points

  • If you’re moving to the cloud, consider using a trusted provider with a track record of working with schools
  • Check where the data is being stored and whether you have parental consent
  • Consider where you will store your devices and protect the data on them
  • Management of devices through something like Apple Classroom or Chromebook management can make your use of devices more efficient
  • Conduct an audit of what devices you already have and consider how these might be used
  • Something like Neverware could breathe life into old devices
  • Give colleagues the time and space to experiment together
