Digital technology: strategic planning and reducing IT costs
Royden Gothelf, independent consultant, Right ICTWhen you have a clear IT strategy, linked to your school improvement plan, the questions involved in procuring digital technology – such as: How will this work in my school? What will the IT manager need to do to support its use? What training will staff need? What budget should I set aside? – become easier to answer.
In this seminar, Royden Gothelf will discuss strategic planning for term-to-term management, and show attendees how they can use simple frameworks – relating to their IT and school improvement plans – to get a strategic view and set priorities with their SLTs. Royden will also provide insights and examples from his work with schools (KS1 to KS5) using education technology to improve whole school outcomes – and, often, saving money.
Take home points:
- Tips on reducing IT costs whilst retaining and improving IT effectiveness.
- Techniques for business managers and senior leaders to get the most from IT resources to improve whole school outcomes.
- IT improvement planning for non-technical people.
All school business managers and school leaders who want to lead in the digital transformation of education in their school – whatever the budget situation, this is achievable.
