  7. 7. Why we started the Journey Leeds City College is one of the largest College’s within the UK with 30K+ learners of varying levels across a diverse curriculum spread across 6 main campuses. Previous feedback was that too many varying platforms were being used to deliver Teaching Learning and Assessment (TL&A) at the college and no direction. Financial constraints placed on FE - The college and other organisations were having to think of new innovative ways which they could save money and space but also increase the quality of our offer. Adapting to learners expectations and improving Learner experience - Learners expect to be able to learn at their own pace, from different locations and using different devices. Technology is no longer the exception but the rule across learners - If they use technology everyday and it is engrained why fight against that.
  8. 8. Journey Overview
  9. 9. Our journey Strategies that support teachers to be innovative Quick wins with Google - Less reliant on the teacher to evidence learning: ● Managed & auditable learning environment ● Track GLH, history, learning content and collaboration ● Apps that are education focused ● Virtual Classroom - use in and out of college ● Differentiated - each student ‘owns’ their learning ● Online, self marking assessment tools ● Built in literacy tools & assistive technology ● Embedded research tools for higher level skills
  10. 10. Key Benefits Affordable ShareableSimple Secure Leeds City College has benefitted from: ● Shift in pedagogy and delivery to more independent / online learning ● Increased accessibility for every student - Any Place, Any time, Any where ● Device agnostic learning ● Approx ‘server’ savings of £750,000: 25,000 students with access to unlimited storage in Google Drive ● Approx saving of £1.35m on devices: 4500 chromebooks vs 4500 laptops

  13. 13. Creating a culture which embraces new ways of thinking
  14. 14. Just enforcing the use of technology doesn’t always work. Staff need to have training, support and guidance for it to be used effectively. Get that right and it’s a game changer “ “

  30. 30. Confidential & Proprietary What staff say about our PD…. “Prior to taking on the course, I had a vague idea of what Google applications were available and certainly did not utilise them in my day to day work. Throughout the course, I learned about the benefits of using Google and was able to compare them to how I was working at the time. I now incorporate what I learned into my day to day working and have been able to organise, share and manage my workload far more efficiently than I have ever done before.” - Recruitment Coordinator “The training really changed my mind about the platform and apps! I can now see all the benefits and not only that I got a practical hands on experience of how to use things which apply to me and my students. I now use the platform and me and my students love it.” - Teacher 34
