This year’s PCSchool conference is not to be missed. We will be showcasing how better collection and use of whole data – curriculum, attendance, involvement (co-curricular) and behaviour – leads to meaningful evidence-based discussions with students.
Our keynote speakers will be sharing remarkable stories of how their schools are achieving extraordinary results using PCSchool:
Sheryll Offner, Principal of Selwyn College, will be sharing with us how the rigorous collection and accessible use of data has transformed Selwyn College and discuss how, with the use of check and connect strategies, mentors are able to monitor and encourage student focus on co-curricular goals, school awards, and course selection. As a result students at Selwyn College are achieving academic success and becoming confident lifelong learners.
Wayne Buckland, Principal of Bream Bay College, is often the first of our users to put his hand up and try new features or who pushes our programmers to develop inventive solutions for schools to better use collected data. Wayne will be sharing how looking outside the square for solutions to provide better evidence-based data has helped Bream Bay College meet the needs of their diverse school community.
For the IT-minded we have an industry IT professional leader discussing security both within school networks and across the cloud. They will discuss better ways to secure your school’s sensitive data at rest and in transit.
Administration users will get more insight into the Freedom family model and communication options within PCSchool. How to make better use of our powerful electronic forms and data mining tools.
PCSchool encourages our schools to send at least one staff member to our annual conference where new program features will be showcased and information on our integration partners will be shared. Most importantly attendees will get exposure to other PCSchool users enabling them to share experiences and challenges with like-minded people.
