With advancements in technology, collaboration in all areas is becoming commonplace. Devices with better connectivity allow all to communicate, work and share ideas together quickly and efficiently. No more do you have to remember the USB stick, or have to play rounds of email tennis to get things done together.
You can compose documents, knowing it’s the latest version, see the changes others make, along with providing access to those that need it easily and securely. In the classroom students can be allocated a piece of work, allowing teachers to see what is being worked on and provide feedback in real-time. Homework tasks can be completed on line, not worrying about the software or devices students have at home. The dog not being able to eat it helps too!
For leadership and teaching staff, collaboration provides an easy way to share recourses, help with assessment, share planning and key objectives. Without spending as many extra hours in school, staff can use remote working solutions to enable access to everything out of school. The next meeting you have could be on Skype or Hangouts, to save time in what seems to be a shorter day with more things to get done.
