  • Title slide of presentation. In the physical world it’s relatively straightforward to work out what the duty of care towards young people might mean and what precautions to take. The virtual world is more demanding, if only because the range of activities that learners can do online is expanding and changing. This is a good thing in itself, opening opportunities for learning and creativity, but it also means thinking ahead of new risks.

    8. 8. The nine areas of organisational operation
    9. 9. The seven technology enablers Strategic Leadership: what do we have to do to demonstrate a leadership commitment to technology? People and Culture: what do we have to do to ensure everyone values the role of technology? Expertise and Skills: what do we have to do to maintain and develop our skills to exploit technology? Technology: what do we have to do to ensure the necessary availability of technology? Learning Content: is the development and management of learning content making the most of technology? Information and Data: is the management of information and data making the most of technology? Processes: does technology complement and support our processes?
    10. 10. Quick Review or Full Review? <ul><li>The Quick Review enables users to quickly skim across all nine areas by identifying the level of positive impact technology is having on each of these. </li></ul><ul><li>The Full Review enables the user to drill into these by looking at all the things that need to be in place for the effective use of technology. </li></ul><ul><li>It is envisaged that the typical approach to using the framework would be for the organisation to use the Quick Review to identify where they are weak and strong, and then the Full Review to drill into their key areas of interest, rather than all of them. </li></ul>Impact and Benefits Strategy & leadership People & culture Expertise & skills Technology & tools Learning content Information & data Processes Motivations Capabilities Contexts Quick Full

    17. 17. Generic description of the maturity levels Technology allows our organisation in some areas to realise benefits which, in its absence, would be harder to achieve. This is on an ad hoc, case-by-case basis and particularly true for indirect learner benefits. Technology allows our organisation to realise and continue to sustain benefits in some areas, including direct benefits to the learner. This repeatability tends to rely on pockets of knowledge. Technology is transformative for our organisation, clearly contributing to positive learner outcomes. Our offer is significantly better through the use of technology and we our organisation is a leader amongst our peers, community and target catchments. Technology allows our organisation to realise direct and indirect benefits which, in its absence, would not otherwise be possible. This is across the organisation and not reliant on pockets of knowledge.
