There is a lot going on for Jospehine at Elm Park Primary. As well as visiting a neighbouring school, she needs to get back for rehearsals for the school play. Will she pull it all in?
School council members Phoebe, Lauren, Christopher and Ayo are joining Josephine on a visit to Parsonage Farm Primary School. Along with teachers, governors and parents, they’re hoping to find out all about the school’s learning platform.
In this episode we hear from Parsonage Farm headteacher, Pauline, about the different uses of the school’s Fronter MLE (managed learning environment). Pupils show their peers around the learning platform and discuss its benefits for homework, resources, forums and safety. Parent governor, Kate, discovers that ‘stickying’ is the most popular activity. But what is it?
Back at Elm Park Primary, the ICT committee meets to discuss the vacant ICT role. Vicki and her team are now looking for a ‘Next Generation Learning Leader’. A teacher who is technology-minded and can inspire all staff to embed technology across the curriculum.
We find out how the school is doing with the Next Generation Learning Charter and get a sneak preview of the Christmas play. We also hear about plans for using the learning platform for sharing productions with friends and family in the future.
