Our tablet and technology event, run in partnership with John Henry Newman Catholic College in Birmingham in October, proved a tremendous success. With a healthy mix of senior management and head teachers from both primary and secondary schools, the event focussed principally on developing an effective technology strategy.
It became clear very quickly that the majority of schools required support with strategy development and implementation. Much discussion was based around how valuable tablet technology is, if utilised to its full potential.
The senior team at Trilby were able to use successful case study examples to demonstrate how schools could develop a clear technology strategy with key milestones. The benefits of sharing success across the whole school, amongst students and teachers, as well as measuring and evaluating the impact of the strategy were also high on the agenda.
“Most people left with renewed vigour and appetite”
“All very interesting and exciting”
“I found you and your teams presentations exceptional”
Comments such as these demonstrate just how valuable delegates found the event. Trilby plan to host further inspirational and development events over the coming 12 months, with some real hands-on sessions to establish schools’ requirements and deliver powerful plans that can achieve real impact.
The Trilby team believe it is critical for teachers to share the challenges they face as well as their achievements, to enable other schools to adopt similar strategies or avoid potential pitfalls. Sharing success is also vital within a school and one tool which easily enables this is TrilbyTV, a simple to use video sharing app. Following on from the event, several schools are now using TrilbyTV in their schools to share and showcase their students work and encourage student engagement.
We encourage any school that is looking to introduce tablet technology for the first time or is looking to expand its use of tablets, to attend future Trilby events.
We will lead you on a journey to make a valuable difference to your school by delivering a tailored training strategy to empower teachers to fully appreciate the technology you have invested in, and utilise it to motivate and inspire all your students.
