Mount Hawke Academy, Aspire Academy Trust

Digital Learning Cornwall has been providing hands-on CPD for primary school staff for a number of years, constantly searching for technology implementations that provide real value and true working purpose for schools. We operate within a group of 28 primaries and have provided CPD and guidance to numerous external settings. Children’s learning, practicalities and staff ease-of-use are always at the top of our agenda.

Our Journey With Educational Technology

  • Deploying our strategy of single-sign on, child-friendly access for children across our group. We continue to tailor this function for remote learning scenarios

  • Utilising working groups of staff to evaluate the impact of remote learning, including working with key pieces of software while examining uptake and results

  • Staff communicate and collaborate through established cloud services, with increased in-house online training

  • Having established a solid starting point for our diverse range of parents to access learning, we now push towards fuller VLE and related systems – including video for setting tasks and feedback, and manipulating online products to motivate and engage

  • Evaluation of safeguarding concerns and implications for online learning practice continue to be paramount within our approach

  • Preparing accessible webinars, sign-up meetings and online evaluative documentation begin to roll-out, allowing MATs and schools to develop a relationship with us
