School improvement planning through technology

Author: Chris Stott
Naace offers a range of powerful tools and awards designed to support excellence in schools and academies. There is a lot more to discover than simple awards. The Self-review Framework can support any school, across all curriculum areas, to provide a better educational experience for its pupils. Developing a 3rd Millennium Learning Award submission is a process that drives discussions in the school about what you believe 3rd millennium learning to be, informed by the wonderful video submissions from schools that have gained the award. The awards recognise achievement and drive change and further improvement.

Self-review Framework

Self Review Framework
The Self-review Framework (SRF) provides a structure for reviewing your school’s use of technology and its impact on school improvement.

It is designed to help you review your use of technology in a structured way, which will in turn help inform your overall school improvement strategy and plans. Additionally, because the SRF compliments the inspection frameworks, its use can provide compelling evidence in support of your school’s inspection profile. A powerful tool packed with guidance will help you develop a strong vision and map a course for the future. Sign up now for only £50+vat for immediate access at www.naacesrf.com.

ICT Mark

ICT Mark
The award for schools with good use of technology to support teaching, learning and school administration. Deservedly popular with schools wanting to demonstrate both effective and mature use of technology. Schools use this award to drive change and many are, or go on to be, outstanding.

3rd Millennium Learning Award

3rd Millennium Learning Award
The aim of the 3rd Millennium Learning Award is to enable schools to demonstrate how they are providing an education fit for the 21st century. It celebrates schools' achievements in creating an environment and curriculum that stimulate more and better learning, making full use of the opportunities presented by technology.

This is a peer-referenced Award, with no set criteria, as schools enable their pupils to experience 3rd Millennium Learning in very diverse ways. Judgement of the submissions by schools for the Award is made by a ‘college’ of schools that have already gained the Award and the Award Steering Group comprised of 3rd Millennium Learning Guides. The Guides are Naace members who have demonstrated understanding of 3rd millennium learning approaches, by review of a range of both primary and secondary schools that have gained the Award.

Naace hopes and expects that by sharing the experiences of schools that the extent and quality of 3rd millennium learning and the significantly raised achievement of pupils that results will spread and grow.
