King Ecgbert School and Notre Dame High School are official Department for Education 'EdTech Demonstrator Schools', collectively known as EdTechSheff.
The programme was introduced to boost peer-to-peer support on the effective use of technology and has now been tailored to help schools and colleges provide education remotely.
The Demonstrator Schools and Colleges will provide professional development, initially focused on supporting the effective delivery of remote teaching practices to schools and colleges across the country. The programme will target schools and colleges who are most in need of support; for example, those getting to grips with using a new online learning platform and those with the most disadvantaged learners.
The Programme will include:
advice, guidance and training including a mix of group support through webinars, recorded content and peer to peer discussions. It will include content on the use of online learning platforms, digital safety, supporting the needs of pupils with SEND and how to promote pupil and teacher well being during remote teaching.
a universal offer of support, provided by the Delivery Partners and delivered through this website. This offer will draw on the work of the Demonstrator Schools and Colleges and will provide schools and colleges across the country with access to recorded tutorials, advice and guidance aimed at supporting effective remote working.
