At Bishop Burton we are embedding technology into the curriculum by focusing on extending learning outside of the classroom via our VLE. We understand that learning can continue outside the classroom and technology is the key to making this a success. We monitor our courses based on student engagement and quality of resources which follows on from the development within our VLE.
We provide our staff with monthly training sessions on all kinds of technology from student response tools to interactive web tools and week by week we can see staff engaging with new technologies. In addition, our short online courses help staff develop in their own time, as a group or on a one-to-one basis.
Bishop Burton College strives for excellence and under the direction of our Information Learning Technology Group and the assistance of our ILT Coaches, we provide the support to enable this to happen.
