Our small group of P6/7 IT Gurus support our digital learning in St John’s. At the moment the main support role is to ensure that iPads are up to date and fit for purpose in classes. We are fortunate to have 1:1 iPads in P6 & P7 with class sets in P4, P5 and a trolley for infants. In addition to these we also have an iPad for each teacher, a set of iPads in SfL and a small number of older machines in P1,2 & 3.
IT Gurus will use their skills to gather evidence of pupil achievement, in and out of school and share this digitally with stakeholders using social media and our Website blog. To support the IT Gurus we will establish a ‘Team’ page within 365 to improve communications between team members.
Lastly, as we progress into next session we will enable IT Gurus to enhance their skills to support staff and pupils in class to solve the most common IT issues that occur in class. These include smartboards disconnecting from laptops, Apple TV issues and wifi issues on all class based technology.
