  • Using technology to support our growth; learning together – lots of sessions led by our own experts – Y1s through DPs, LLCs leading schoolwide interdisciplinary groups – interrogating current data, demanding more of technology to reduce the time spent finding data to all spent on questioning how it can better inform our practices; Technology as a tool, not an end in i tself - enhancing learning, and providing data, analysis, evaluation, setting new goals and inquiry; assisting us to design better infrastructures – so that e.g. curriculum drives the timetable – timetable never determining or limiting the curriculum
