Title: Digital Cocoons: The transformational potential of ICT Djanogly City Academy Nottingham Mike Butler


1
Digital Cocoons The transformational potential
of ICT Djanogly City Academy Nottingham Mike
Butler - Principal
ICT in BSF Making it Work
2
Futures Vision?
  • "I think there is a world market for maybe five
    computers."- Thomas Watson, Chairman of IBM,
    1943
  • "There is no reason anyone in the right state of
    mind will want a computer in their home."- Ken
    Olson, President of Digital Equipment Corp, 1977.

3
BSF
  • Building what
  • for whose future?
  • Schools Education?
  • Learning Beyond the Classroom
  • ICT Whole school strategy Community

4
Engaging Stakeholders
  • DfES / LA / LEP / Sponsor / Governors
  • Return on investment
  • Headteacher
  • Raise standards / improve ethos
  • Staff Buy-in
  • Reassure parents HS, handwriting, etc.
  • The Kids are the Experts

5
The Digital Dilemma
  • Emerging technologies
  • New applications of existing technologies
  • Solutions looking for problems?
  • Identify need then determine solution?
  • ?Two-way process

6
Starting Points
  • Inform Vision by
  • Strategic Review
  • Core purpose
  • what we do / should do
  • Shared beliefs / values
  • to guide how we do it

7
The Sigmoid Curve
A point at which re-engineering should begin B
looking disaster in the face! The law of
diminishing returns effort disproportionate to
outcomes
8
Futures Thinking
  • If you do what you always did, youll get what
    you always gotor less!
  • i.e. some different strategies required

9
Envisioning
  • Where do we want to go and how might we get
    there from here?
  • The mission of a caterpillar is not to become a
    bigger caterpillar but to become a butterfly.
  • Ill see it when I believe it.

10
Some Paradigm Shifts
  • Curriculum
  • From
  • Strictly delineated subjects
  • Starting points
  • Acquisition of Knowledge
  • Recall of Facts
  • Exam Technique

11
Some Paradigm Shifts
  • Curriculum
  • To
  • Spanning boundaries of subjects
  • Starting points
  • Competencies
  • Transferable skills
  • Real-world relevance
  • ? Workforce reform - Changing roles

12
The Sage on the Stage
13
The Guide by the Side
14
Some new Strategies
  • CPD time every week
  • True Vocational Courses
  • Accelerated learning / Early entry
  • Learning to Learn Curriculum
  • Thinking skills / toolkits
  • Meta-cognition
  • Independent and inter-dependent learning

15
The Academy Mission (1)
  • To provide opportunities for people to develop
    the knowledge, skills and wisdom required to be
    effective lifelong learners

16
Mission (2)
  • To enable learners to develop their intellectual,
    social, moral and spiritual potential to the full
    and, in so doing, encourage individuals to value
    their role as proactive citizens

17
Mission (3)
  • To pioneer educational innovations

18
Mission (4)
  • To specialise in exploiting state-of-the-art ICT
    (Information and Communication Technologies) to
    develop intellectual capability, and to enhance
    teaching, learning and management throughout the
    Academys operations

19
Mission (5)
  • To contribute to the raising of standards of
    educational outcomes for young people in inner
    city Nottingham and beyond

20
ICT the Rationale (1)
  • To raise standards by exploiting the potential of
    ICT to
  • enhance teaching, learning and management
    processes
  • build intellectual capability
  • foster independence, autonomy, interactivity
    enquiry
  • address individual needs (inc. SEN)
  • develop transferable skills for lifelong learning
  • accelerate learning
  • provide frequent opportunities for success

21
ICT the Rationale (2)
  • Thinking is not linear and sequential neither is
    learning. Theyre both about creating links,
    connections and associations. Theyre to do with
    nets and webs and movements back and forth
    reviewing, revising and re-presenting. The
    analogy with the use of ICT is profound. It is
    the natural medium for learning and for
    developing higher order critical thinking skills
    such as analysis, interpretation and synthesis.

22
ICT the Rationale (3)
  • Capacity for (multimedia) ICT to address
  • Preferred learning styles (visual, auditory,
    kinaesthetic)
  • Multiple Intelligences
  • Problem Solving (Vygotskys ZPD scaffolding)

23
Blooms Taxonomy
  • AAL Research more time spent on higher order
    tasks

Development of critical thinking skills and
cognitive capacity
24
Implications for ICT Strategy
  • (Transparent) technology providing
  • On-demand model
  • Personalised learning
  • Anytime
  • Anywhere
  • Any-pace
  • Ready access to formative assessment
  • Flexibility

25
The C in ICT Communication? Collaboration?
The PC-facing Model
26
The C in ICT Communication? Collaboration?
The People-facing Model
27
Learning with, from, alongside
28
Community Engagement
  • Primary schools
  • Colleagues in secondary schools
  • Courses for adults (leisure business)
  • Industry partnerships
  • Student web development team
  • Internationalism
  • Email links
  • Joint web sites
  • Videoconferencing

29
ICT in feeder primaries
Toshiba sponsored laptops project at Forest
Fields Primary School

Anyone fancy making a prediction?
E-learning will become ubiquitous and
all-pervasive, rendering all environments
paperless.
  • If the increasing demand for paper shredding
    services is any indication, it's still a long way
    off.
