A feature on the features of our Featured Resources

We have previously blogged about our new Resource Library and it is gaining traction in our schools which is great.


The Resource Library is for DRET staff and students with a dret.cloud account, but those without such an account can still access our 'Featured Resources' pages. Each week we will feature some of the best resources that have been submitted by our talented teachers for the world to see.




This week's featured resource is an EdExcel GCSE History Unit on the American West, submitted by Miss Cooper of Malcolm Arnold Academy.


The folder is jam-packed full of lesson resources covering topics such as Billy the Kid, the Battle of Little Bighorn and The Gold Rush - 20 lessons of engaging content from a fascinating period of American history.




These resources are available for all!

To view these lesson materials, head over to resources.dret.cloud and click on the featured resources pages. Stay tuned each week as we focus on a range of featured resources submitted by teachers from across our academies.

If you have a dret.cloud account then all of our resources are available to view, download and adapt.

This could inconvenience people - people that use them and me*

Every school still has one or two people that carry everything to and from work every day on that external disc they bought four or five years ago - I know of one colleague who has more than ten year's material on there, and another that lost everything when the drive failed and they had no backup. The ban comes from a security review where these devices were identified as one of our highest risks because:

From a data protection point of view, we know people know not to put any kind of personal or confidential data onto one, but there is always the risk of human error.The…

eLearning Scrapbook of Ideas

Our eLearning Conference is coming up fast and a number of ideas and mini-projects are coming up to release for it. One of these is what we've been calling internally a 'Playbook' then a 'Scrapbook.'

The premise is simple - we have the privilege of working with a lot of very clever people around the DRET Academies and often, something to them that seems mundane or just something they thought they'd show us as an afterthought turns out to be an idea we're blown away by and need to share. Over the year this has happened during visits to other people, at staff CPD events and through the blog, but we wanted to collect them together better. We have picked up many of these snippets and are making "top tips" website for our staff that will be publicly available with help videos etc very shortly.

Sometimes though you need a "brochure" version - on paper - to get attention. So we've packaged together a sample and had it printed for delegates…
