Technology. . . . It's about People
When building a development plan to promote and invest in effective use of technology there is always much emphasis on having the right platforms, with integration and Single Sign On etc., which of course is of high value, however schools often overlook having the correct human resources and support structures in place without which many initiatives are not as successful as they could be.

Join Lee Drury in a session sharing some thoughts on technology governance and staffing provision in schools to attempt to answer these important questions.
  • Does more technology equal less staff?
  • Does my staffing model reflect a 21st century school?
  • What staff do I need to support the schools use of technology?
  • How do I establish effective communication and governance?
  • What's the cost and how do I measure the return on investment?`
