Different types of VLE
 Once you learn to drive a car,
 you can quickly get used to a
       different make.
How we use the VLE to support
learning is more important than
      being an ICT expert.

    Learning Platform developments: VLE

   Several years experience already – admin fully
    electronic – no paperwork! Staff trained to use VLE
    for communication, notices, QA, cover
   All subjects now covered with pages & resources
    at KS5, most at KS4 and some at KS3 – system
    makes it hard to track use & map out everything
   Expanding more into KS3/4 to pick up other
    subjects, more clubs and groups
   Increased diversity of activities being used by
    various staff, including support staff
   Developing ‘new’ VLE (Frog) for September 2009 –
    will allow parental access to data – more creativity.

  SECTION 1:               Confidence in using ICT for e-learning

  4 = very confident,        3 = quite confident, 2 = OK, 1 = Never really used it

 Most staff seem much more confident using the ICT resources they have.

 Key priorities for 2008 – 2009 are:
 • Interactive Whiteboard training, especially for faculties that haven’t had them before
 • More training in using My Classes, in and out of lessons
 • Some sessions on SIMS?

 SECTION 2:             How well could ICT support Personalising Learning in your area?

 1 = strongly disagree, 2 = disagree, 3 = unsure, 4 = agree, 5 = strongly agree

                                      Agree       Agree

 There were very few staff who felt these ideas were not of some use. The most popular
 areas were use of games, quizzes & concept maps.

 Key priorities for 2008 – 2009 are:
 • Further training on using Hot Potatoes to produce revision/review quizzes
 • Training on using free concept mapping software & Real Smart
 • Look at purchasing/making ICT learning games for staff to use in lessons with students

  • Flash e-learning games & activities produced ‘in
  house’ by a web designer

  • Students use them in lessons and at home to
  support active learning and self-assessment

  • Multimedia-rich and interactive

  • Export games to the learning platform
          Why do we need a new VLE?

• Current system not developing quickly enough
• de Ferrers wants to stay ahead of the game
• Limited support
• Current system is slow, it limits large file
downloads, not very user friendly
• We need real-time editing & links to learning
resources
• More exciting system – get student engaged
more – better AFL opportunities - creativity
• Parental engagement and reporting
                        FINAL THOUGHTS:
    de Ferrers
Specialist Technology
      College


  1. SATURATION - Offer students a wide choice of
    resources to learn from – Blitzkrieg approach!
  2. DRIP FEED - Keep chipping away at staff to
    encourage use, suggest ideas, experiment…
  3. Develop a TEAM to support all staff in setting up
    pages & learning tools – booster sessions?
  4. ENCOURAGE staff to share ideas at meetings
  5. ASK students – what do they want? Get them
    involved:     Demand  Supply
