From Excel to Edu-Intelligence: A journey through the on-going development of a data management tool

From excel downloads, mass individualisation of data, and pieces of paper in pigeon holes, to an ever evolving data management system that provides a 3 dimensional look at each cohort, house, class and individual.
  • What data are we actually collecting?
  • What data do we think we will be useful in improving our student-based outcomes?
  • What is the best way to access and present the 3,000,000+ data points that we collect each year, given a school community with the regular amount of ICT confidence and diversity?
  • How can we effectively share that data with our students and parents?
  • How can we use this data tool to both add value to each one of the students in our care and to, in real time, find those students that are slipping quietly through the cracks? Data driven differentiation.
  • What could the future look like?

Creativity for All – Together for student success

The late great Sir Ken Robinson said many times creativity now is as important in education as literacy. During this presentation, Dr Tim Kitchen from Adobe will outline the case for creativity in all curriculum areas. He will argue that the role of the 21st century educator is not to self-deliver content but to facilitate the understanding of key concepts and skills, cater for a range of learning styles and encourage the use of a range of digital tools that interconnect to help students creatively construct life-long learning.

21st Century Learning for an Ever Changing World

  • By at large the way and what we teach hasn’t changed since it was designed in the 19th Century.
  • The addition of digital technology is vital in '21st Century Education’ but it’s not as simple as a band-aid solution.
  • There remains a digital divide between our teaching professionals and our students as ‘digital natives’.
  • We need to give our future workforce the transversal skills they need for jobs that don’t exist yet and jobs that won’t exist when our learners leave school.
  • Should the way we teach change to give our learners the employability skills they deserve for an ever changing world?
