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.

44 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

45 de Ferrers Specialist Technology College FINAL THOUGHTS: 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
