Becoming a google school
I love my IT department the are brilliant. I spend quite a lot of time going up to see them and asking for things that often have completely unrealistic timescales like can you please make this work for my lesson that starts in 10 minutes! They pretty much always manage it. If you don’t already love your IT department grab a packet of biscuits and go make friends.
Last year I went to the TSM conference which was great and when I got back I went up with a whole list of things I wanted to try including doing more with google apps for education. Over the last year I’ve been playing with things like forms and sheets but now we’re starting a trial of google classrooms and I’m excited about seeing what can be done. In a lot of ways it’s similar to a VLE but it feels more intuitive and interactive which I like.
