Strategy for change 2019

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to attend and present at the annual Strategy for Change Event held by Digicape. This is always an interesting day and yesterday didn't disappoint.

It is fascinating to mix with other like-minded teaching professionals and hear from them what their specific needs are. Every school is different and what works for a big, privately funded school won't necessarily be the right solution for a small school that relies on government funding. Principals and other school leaders often ask me what and how we do what we do and this is what makes introducing technology into the classroom such an interesting field. There is a solution for everyone! I guess it is navigating the minefield of options and making the right decisions that is the tricky part.

Whether it is rolling out the latest and greatest iPad (new announcement should be coming September 10th) in a 1-1 programme or just buying your first few chrome books, the initial decision is often what paves the way forward. Once you invest in something, you need to commit to it and throw your weight behind it.

My advice would be to get in touch with someone like myself who can assist in at least pointing you in the right direction!
