  • If you reduce teacher workload you increase the time available for high quality teaching

    and learning.

  • If you reduce school costs using technology you

    you increase the resources available for teaching and learning.

  • Used intelligently, technology enables us to:

    1. increase the speed of feedback loops

    2. improve the efficiency of feedback loops

    3. secure student engagement

    4. reimagine the types of learning activity that were possible

    AND… 5. reduce teacher workload

    AND… 6. Improve teacher professional development

  • The most important thing: ●Ensure the implementation of technology is driven

    by your pedagogical aims.

    If you do nothing else: ●Share this video with your colleagues. You will find

    at least one idea you can try out tomorrow. https://goo.gl/KghjgM
