Alan Crawford, Vice Principal, Shireland Collegiate Academy

  • Reading about emotional intelligence is something I find really interesting
  • Our whole academy is built on Office 365

Sir Mark Grundy, Headteacher, Shireland Collegiate Academy, @sirmarkgrundy, quotes:

  • We’ve created a system which frees hours and hours and hours of staff time
  • At the risk of putting myself out of favour with the photocopying industry…what most schools do, is photocopy the world. It’s not an economic way of delivering learning.
  • I’m stubborn in that I won’t accept that technology should force our processes to change. We are your best and worst place to pilot anything.
  • What you can’t do is build all sorts of technology benefits on top of chaos.
  • Not enough schools are stubborn around the processes of learning and school improvement and school management.
  • I have a problem with BringYourOwnDevice. It’s just chaos, utter chaos!
  • The depth of scrutiny we now get from our trustees is at a level I’ve never seen
  • I think technology is just such a great lever for support and change and it’s a great leveller
  • I expect the leadership team to serve the staff and the kids. I don’t expect the staff to serve the leadership team.
  • Do our staff feel pressured? Yes they do. Do they feel accountable? Yes they do. Do I think they feel well supported by us? Yes, I think they do.
  • We have pushed our staff to put try and do a more evidence based analysis of what they do
  • My experience in the DFE at the moment is they are genuinely looking at how to do things differently.
  • I was hugely impressed. She spoke about a different landscape. She touched on the sort of skills our young people need. Every conversation has involved how do we harness the power of technology

The Edtech Podcast supports the mission of WomenEd: #WomenEd is a grassroots movement which connects existing and aspiring leaders in education. Even though women dominate the workforce across all sectors of education there still remain gender inequalities, particularly at senior leadership level. The situation regarding BME leadership is even more dire considering the fact that the student population is becoming increasingly diverse. This situation is clearly unacceptable and rapid change is needed. #WomenEd will therefore campaign and use its collective power to make improvements, so that there is a more equitable balance in terms of gender and ethnicity at leadership level across all sectors of education. http://www.womened.org/
