One way school governors can help their school share IT resources

Schools have invested a lot of money in IT hardware. Here is one way a school governor can support the use of IT in their school.

As a school governor you may be surprised to find that school’s find it hard to share IT rooms and resources. Although schools have timetables they often don’t have a means of sharing resources which are not timetabled. Historically timetable systems have been teacher and student focused. The world has changed however and we now have classrooms with teachers, students and thousands of pounds worth of IT equipment.

You can help by making sure your school has an online room booking system like Freeperiod. I created Freeperiod to address this very problem in the school I worked. I also went on to become a governor of the same school. I’m confident Freeperiod will make life easier for the staff and students in your school.
