Technology has the potential to make everything different. It also has the potential to change nothing. Which one you end up with depends on the extent to which you pick the brains of people as experienced and gifted as Mark Anderson when it comes to introducing learning technologies into the classroom.

A former assistant head teacher responsible for e-learning, award-winning blogger, Apple Distinguished Educator and a Google Certified Teacher, Mark’s philosophy is that learning technologies are a means by which learning can be enhanced for all, regardless of the classroom, the teacher and the learner. But you do need to do it right.

Through his online presence, his public appearances and his book, Perfect ICT Every Lesson, Mark has a reputation for being the man you most need to work with when it comes to ensuring the money and effort you put into your teaching and learning and technology actually make a difference to the learning.

Areas we cover:

Vision

Work with Mark to help you develop a realistic and sustainable vision for teaching and learning with technology.

Team

Unpick strategies to help you get the right team around you on your edtech journey.

Community

Decide upon the ways you will involve your whole community with your strategy and vision.

Sustainable

Ensure through close working with your SBM the project you undertake will be affordable, sustainable and worthwhile given budgets available. The cost of implementing education technology successfully isn’t just the cost of devices. It’s important to know what’s involved from an impartial voice who won’t push one particular product and keep learning and pupils at the front of their thoughts.

Learning

Learning is the focus in any elearning strategy. Work with Mark to develop effective, consistent strategies for all teachers to deploy in their classrooms with pupils to have an impact upon standards. Ensuring that the infrastructure of your technology supports what you want to do is clear. Mark will be able to advise you on where your focus should be.

CPD

Effective CPD is what we do. If it’s not going to have an impact on standards and be possible for staff to implement, it’s probably not worth doing. Making sure you have effective teaching and learning taking place that’s founded in the goals, interests and needs of your pupils is key if you want to reap the benefits of edtech. Work with Mark Anderson to make it work in your school.

Mark listened to what we wanted to do and helped us plan out a ‘road map’ to get there. Mark was brilliant at keeping us on the right path and keeping us true to our ‘why’. He was able to take our ‘why’ and show us ‘how’ this could happen. The teachers felt incredibly supported and guided by the work Mark did with them as he made it easy for them to see how little things can have the greatest impact. Mark has a catch phrase ‘Keep IT Simple’- I couldn’t agree more.

His ability to carve out a personalised program of development that reflects our vision and pedagogy has had a hugely positive impact on the teaching and learning in our school. His passion for real world learning and pupil engagement reflects ours; combining this with his wealth of experience and knowledge has brought into alignment our curriculum vision and the needs of our children. We can’t wait for his next visit.
