Clare Berryman, Head of the first ever school we used the SocialSchoolMedia approach with to harness Facebook for parental engagement, told her story at a conference and here it is – much overdue but better shared late than never! Enjoy.
From the day’s agenda blurb:
Clare has a proven and recognised track record of innovation including the creation of a ‘much observed’ new school curriculum design. She is a Leader of Education with the National College and provides CPD and support within Lancashire authority on creative approaches to the curriculum and personalised learning. Clare is no technical expert but recognised long ago that if the school was to engage with parents early on in the relationship then social media was the right tool for the task; particularly Facebook. Clare is shortly to have her children making apps for and in the school and is looking forward to seeing the learning that will come from this.
