    High schools and colleges worked together as cLcs to offer greater choice to students
    Schools had more flexible timetables
    The virtual school became a reality
    Some students worked from home or elsewhere
    Schools pooled their resources to offer a broader curriculum

    “Be in the room”
  • Be in the Room
    “Throughout the school we practice the belief that learning takes place within and without classroom walls. We believe in experiential learning, the value of creativity, action and service which are core to student experience throughout the school and the power of student leadership, choice and decision making through the empowerment of our “student voice”.”
    Principal Ms Jane Foxcroft.

    Directed and managed
    Celebrate success and measure outcomes
  • John Kotter’s 8 Step Model
    Increase urgency - inspire people to move, make objectives real and relevant.
    Build the guiding team - get the right people in place with the right emotional commitment, and the right mix of skills and levels.
    Get the vision right - get the team to establish a simple vision and strategy, focus on emotional and creative aspects necessary to drive service and efficiency.
    Communicate for buy-in - Involve as many people as possible, communicate the essentials, simply, and to appeal and respond to people's needs.
    Empower action - Remove obstacles, enable constructive feedback and lots of support from leaders - reward and recognise progress and achievements.
    Create short-term wins - Set aims that are easy to achieve - in bite-size chunks. Manageable numbers of initiatives.
    Don't let up - Foster and encourage determination and persistence - ongoing change - encourage ongoing progress reporting - highlight achieved and future milestones.
    Make change stick - Reinforce the value of successful change via recruitment, promotion, new change leaders. Weave change into culture.
  • Getting started
    Review your school vision statement in light of new opportunities
    owned by all staff
    Try to engage other key players inc parents
    Focus on entitlement
    Support, enhance and inform your school’s aims in terms of
  • Start Small
    Plan small high leverage wins based on identified need
    Demonstrate success
    Plan your roll out
    Draw up a training and support plan.
    Build in sharing time
    The learning platform cannot be embedded fully in day-to-day practice until the majority of users are using it across several areas of interest. It is important to review and evaluate impact at regular intervals in order to plan the move to the next step
  • Parents
    Manage expectations
    What they can realistically expect to find

    Ways in…..
  • Conditions for success
    • A strategic, positive and hands-on approach to implementation by senior leaders and managers.
    • The involvement of a wide range of stakeholders, including all members of the school community; the education district and platform providers.
    • A shared ownership of the development with the school community
    • A phased approach to implementation and inclusion as part of development planning.
    • Clear plans for support, training and development of staff.
    • A carefully selected pilot group (Non IT)
    • Alignment with existing school priorities
    • Alignment with professional targets
    • Clearly defined roles and responsibilities.
    • Adoption through a change management process, setting out clear expectations of success and including continuous review and development.
  • 6. A Five Step Roadmap
    “The cLc opened the doors we have always tried to open. What we did not realise was that behind each door there were many more that we didn’t even know existed”
    Guidance Page 11
    Adapted from Becta Guidelines and cLc Roadmap Stages
  • Maslow’s 4 stages of Learning
  • Familiarisation
    • The cLc is available to staff and learners.
    • Senior leaders are beginning to plan how to use the cLc to support school objectives.
    • cLc Manager trained
    • Selected teachers have received some input into the potential on offer.
    • Staff have started to experiment and have ideas about how the cLc can support teaching and learning, using, for example, tasks, thinking and peer assessment activities
    • School based training to enable initial pilot plans
    • Small groups of learners have been given access to the cLc and are showing initial excitement when using teacher- constructed tools like wikis, blogs or forums.
  • Exploration
    • The senior leadership has a plan to develop the cLc based on school priorities
    • Pilot projects are being shared with wider staff
    • In-house experts identified as trainers
    • School is reviewing policies starting with e-Safety / AUP and aligning cLc with Essential Learning Activities
    • Beginning to organise and share key documents and policies / planning via cLc
    • The cLc is becoming part of day-to-day practice for pilot teachers and students.
    • Use of the cLc is appearing in planning
    • Parents of pilot stage students are aware of the potential of the learning platform.
    • New groups are expressing interest
  • Policies
    Which new policies / documents will need to be created
    Which existing policies will need to be adapted?
  • Growth
    Senior leaders have planned how to use the cLc to support the school’s aims and ethos
    Senior leaders are modeling the use of the learning platform.
    School policies have been reviewed to include use of the cLc
    Recognised effective practice from the pilot is now extended to all areas within the school.
    School is developing an entitlement model for all stakeholders
    Staff are increasingly confident in their use of different aspects of the cLc and have built on their successes in the pilot with the majority of staff and learners online.
    There is growing evidence and recognition that teaching and learning is being significantly enhanced.
    All parents are aware of the potential and some are being encouraged to actively participate in student learning activities.
    The school has a plan for the use of student e-portfolios
    Teachers are beginning to extend the learning village to connect with learners in other schools
    Student voice is being supported by student managed areas.
  • Integration
    Senior leaders are implementing, monitoring and reviewing the development plan. Senior leaders identify new areas for cLc use.
    Many school administrative procedures are conducted through the learning platform.
    cLc pilot group has been replaced by a user group including students
    School policies are in place indicating what must be shared on the cLc
    The cLc is routinely used by all stakeholders in the school community.
    Learners and teachers have clearly understood expectations in terms of their access and use of the cLc
    Parents use the learning platform to access information and about school policies/procedures as well as their child’s learning. They expect to be invited to have a voice in the running of the school
    Use of cLc featured in all planning and action plans
    All internal communication is via cLc
    Collaboration within and across year groups and subject areas is commonplace
    School has formed cLc partnerships locally, nationally and internationally
  • Maturity
    The present possibilities of the learning platform are being fully exploited. Its use continues to develop in response to the needs of the learner, supporting personalised and more independent learning.
    The cLc has become a central strand of school development and growth and development has become more strategic and controlled and is intrinsically linked to School Improvement Planning.
    The school can respond to new challenges and opportunities effectively
    Teaching and learning have been transformed but change continues.
    Planning no longer takes account of the limitations imposed by traditional structures
    New expectations on all learners
    Deeper levels of student personalisation and ownership
    cLc is integral to the broader school technology ecosystem
    Students have access to experts other than their teacher
    Schools are connected offering greater student choice
    The school has beacon status locally, offering support and guidance to others.
  • Challenges
    • Students without access at home
    • Ethical use
    • Parents
    • Teacher workload
  • E-Safety
    Student owned AUP
    Online identity
  • Next steps: Recap
    Planning – establish a team
    Keep it simple- start small
    Identify initial priorities – School improvement
    Audience and Purpose – Define structures / Permissions
    Everyone’s a teacher – engage students in the process
    Social Learning – Build your village
    Process and outcomes – e-Portfolio
    Implementation roadmap – sustainable and scalable
    Work together
    Administration of learning
    Leadership is key. Be in the room
