Learning Management System Support

I can provide advice and guidance to help your school choose the best online learning environment for your students. Whether you are looking to implement a new learning management system, review your current system or to ensure you are getting the best from your current system, I can provide advice and guidance.

Staff Training

In order to fully utilise your investment in technology, staff training is essential. This is often overlooked in the grand scheme of technology upgrades and implementation. Experience has taught me, that the most effective staff training is targeted, relevant and ongoing – staff need time to implement what they have been taught and follow-up sessions are critical to embed and enhance learning. I can offer small group or 1:1 training sessions and include short ‘how-to’ videos of the content covered in these sessions for your staff to reinforce learning.

ICT Strategy

Throughout my career I have planned, led and implemented ICT strategies for a number of organisations.  This includes facilitation of strategic brainstorming sessions, producing ICT strategic plans, engaging with key stakeholders, managing supplier relationships and leading cross-functional teams. I have led a number of successful ICT infrastructure upgrade projects, software upgrades and 1:1 Device/BYOD programmes. I have also planned and delivered professional development programmes to ensure that new technologies are utilised to enhance outcomes. I can work with your organisation to ensure you are maximising your investment in technology by:

  • Facilitating ICT strategic planning
  • Reviewing your current position
  • Developing staff professional development plans
  • Delivering staff professional development
