Introducing PlatformED

IG Schools is proud to partner with PlatformED to support its community by providing a brand-new and free-to-access content-sharing platform for Schools, Multi-Academy Trusts, Colleges, Local and Central Government and wider education providers in the UK. IG Schools is an official partner of PlatformED, meaning that all delegates at our events will receive invitations to join the online community, share best-practice and connect with like-minded colleagues. The aim of PlatformED is to provide educators and school leaders across the UK with an area to access advice and tips from peers, education leaders and policy makers in the form of live Q&As, webinars, podcasts, blogs and white papers. Users on the platform can share their own content, ask questions, discuss school challenges and seek opinion and guidance from other users. To help make the platform user friendly, the content available is broken down into groups, including eight free-to-access, themed groups and a collection of subscription-based groups from PlatformED partners, such as ISBL, the Schools & Academies Show, IG Schools and more.

I found this a great environment to build links with teachers and to stimulate debate with others. The ideas that came out of these discussions and from best practice will have a direct effect on Teaching and Learning in my school.
