Title: Harnessing Technology

Harnessing Technology A Strategy for
Personalised Learning
  • North West Education Technology Show November
  • Norman Crawford Assistant Director e-Strategy,

Harnessing Technology and Learning Platforms
  • We know that those institutions that have adopted
    technology effectively get better results. They
    deliver higher achievement, better learning, more
    efficient teaching they provide better
    information for, and communication with, learners
    and parents with a more streamlined and less
    bureaucratic administration. Currently, only
    around 15 of our educational establishments are
    in this position. Harnessing Technology aims to
    change this. This keynote session will also
    explore how learning platforms are central to
    achieving this vision for the future.

What the evidence tells us
  • Technology for learning helps raise standards

So, whats the problem?
  • Too few organisations take all the actions needed
    to reap these benefits
  • Moral duty to each and every learner to ensure
  • All educational providers to get the best out of
    current and future technologies to improve the
    quality of learning and raise standards
  • All educational providers to regard using
    technology for learning as an essential but
    normal and integrated aspect of their teaching,
    learning, assessment and management practices
  • All learners to harness technology more choice
    and chances to learn in a way that suits them
  • All learners to have greater opportunities to
    learn inside and outside formal education

  • learning and management services to link home and

Personalised Content
  • Aims to enable personalised teaching and learning
    with a new generation of interactive resources
  • enable practitioners to better design learning
    around the learner
  • help learners build their individual capacity as

  • a system wide policy articulating concepts and
    approaches required for personalising content
  • tools and support for practitioners to create,
    adapt, re-use and share quality digital
  • improved access to and discovery of digital

Knowledge Architecture
  • Aims to provide consistent business processes,
    information flows and data standards
  • enable a single comprehensive overview of every
    learner thus better meeting the information needs
    of all key stakeholders (learners, parents,
  • Through

  • Aims to increase the number of educational
    organisations making strategic effective use
    ICT in order to improve educational outcomes
  • Through

    those from low income and disadvantaged
    backgrounds and their peers
  • Continue to raise standards for all across the
    educational system
  • Increasing the proportion of young people staying
    on in education or training beyond the age of 16

    failure in adult life
  • Closing the skills gap at all levels to keep
    pace with the challenge of globalisation
