GLF Schools

GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Introduction

How do Chromebooks enhance learning at Glyn School?

The following are examples of how students` learning is enhanced:

  • Create, share and collaborate using the Google suite tools to increase the potential of peer assessment and collaborative learning approaches

  • Organise Homework and classwork through Google Classroom allowing easy access

  • Use excellent learning resources from our web based tools, including up to date and relevant e-textbooks, where appropriate

  • Use digital tools to support research and writing.  For example, academic bibliography and citation tools, read aloud and voice recognition tools to promote independent learning

  • Think and behave creatively across their subjects using Cloud Apps for design, planning, animation, mind-mapping, image editing, sound editing, video recording, etc

  • Use subject related Apps in the classroom and at home

  • Greater opportunities of differentiation within the class to meet students` needs

  • Effective assessment for learning in and out of the lesson to both redirect the lesson and aid long term planning based on students` learning
