Primary IT - What is IT being used for in your school?
I've just been approached by the staff in one of my schools where they're in the process of really shaking up IT provision and taking a proper look at what's provided, what they aren't doing, etc... and I've been asked to give some intel' on what's happening based on what's going on in my other schools too.
Net realisation is that I've somehow managed to reprise the role of IT coordinator without anyone (including myself) cottoning on and it's obvious that development in many respects has given way to pragmatics of just trying to keep things running.
So, with this in mind I'm opening up something of a blue skies thread in the hope that you can give me some ideas on what you're doing with your schools, what's new, old, established, wishful thinking, etc...
So far the things we've spotted that haven't happened are:
- Use of digital cameras or video equipment (seems to be staff only)
- Lack of interactive whiteboards
- Control applications beyond what you see on the screen (Mission control)
I'm pretty sure there's more that's just completely escaped me but it occured to me this would be a rather useful thread for other primary techs who may well have found themselves in the same position.
Thanks in advance...
