Resources and Support - Y3 ssp 12 13 l13


Published on

Whilst school budgets are not likely to fall within your remit in the early stages of your career, specifying and choosing resources may well fall onto your shoulders. At a time when all public sector funding is squeezed, ensuring best value in ICT procurement is essential, as is making the best possible use of the resources currently available. Some sort of technical support for ICT in schools is now common, and the management of this may well form part of your role.
You reflect on the range and quality of technology available in the schools visited during your placements, making comparisons with national statistics. We consider a range of approaches to ICT hardware provision and consider some more economical approaches to ICT resourcing.
We discuss criteria for selecting ICT resources and for obtaining best value.
We look at approaches to supporting ICT in schools, and consider the role of the school network manager.

  • Just chance to revise ideas from last term's web based learning module really.  I'd start by asking them to define Web 2.0, then to talk a little about ways in which it might be used in the classroom, and what precautions would be appropriate. You could set up a debate between two groups, one to advocate using publicly accessible tools the other to argue that things need to be kept within the school's walled garden. Perhaps give them a few minutes to prepare and then argue their case.
  • Again, they may wish to work on this in relation to Part 2 of the Assignment. I'm happy for them to share ideas, as long as they acknowledge any collaborative work very clearly. The wiki will be on Section 5 of the course page on Moodle. Again, be good to share these with the group.

As noted earlier, governing bodies are expected to applythe four principles of best value in ensuring the school and the countrygets value for money from this significant investment. Local authorityfinancial procedures and auditing ensure that the principle of‘Competition’ is well met. This is not always the case for the otherthree principles which means that some schools do not obtain goodvalue for money.• ‘Compare performance with others to see where improvementscould be made.’• ‘Challenge why and how a service is being provided.’• ‘Consult stakeholders’
