We are delighted to present our first ever SuperCloud Conference on November 1st.

The Conference has been designed to introduce schools to how cloud technology can be effectively implemented whilst considering key factors that determine successful outcomes. As part of LGfL’s #Pledge2020 commitment to schools, providing faster broadband connections will facilitate the demand of cloud platforms.

A Cloud-based learning environment has the potential to help tackle the teacher workload, invigorate the curriculum and help with the work-life balance without being to much of a monumental change for a school to adopt new ways of thinking, working and learning.

The conference will be held in the heart of the City at etc. venues St. Pauls, where we are running a series of valuable sessions FREE to all LGfL staff.

Our Keynotes include:

  • Microsoft in Education: Accessibility for All
  • Google for Education: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Adobe Creative Cloud: The Power of Creativity
  • Amazon Web Services: Equipping the Future Workforce
  • ICT with Mr P: Raising Standards with Cloud Technology

Using online forms to streamline data collection

Many schools send out paper forms to parents to collect information or permission. This can be really inefficient as it can rely on the student to be organised enough to be the delivery person and then a member of staff to collate the data and chase any missing responses.

A great feature of cloud platforms such as G Suite and Office 365 is that anyone can easily create an online form to capture any information they want. These forms can be filled out by anyone (even on a smart phone), which makes it really easy to send directly out to parents and you don’t have to rely on students to take a piece of paper home and bring it back in!

The responses are automatically collated for easy analysis, which massively reduces staff administration time, and missing respondents can be easily chased at the click of a button!

Here is an example travel survey made in Google Forms.

You can create Forms really easily in both platforms right away!

G Suite: Click ‘New’ in your Google Drive or head to forms.google.com

Office 365: Head to forms.office.com
