DRET Teaching Resource Library deeper dive

A couple of days ago Guy posted an introduction to our new Resource Library. This post will hopefully give you more of an insight into what it is and how to use it.

This video should explain pretty much the basics to get started.

Plain and simply, DRET's new Resource Library is a collection of resources submitted by our Network of Star Classroom teachers across our academies which are downloadable and adaptable for staff and students across our academies.



The Resource Library can be found at resources.dret.cloud and you can search by subject, which then takes you to a page where you can search by Key Stage. From there, you can see what resources have been submitted and download anything you want to use/adapt.



You need to be logged in to your dret.cloud account to view the folders of resources. If you are not logged in, or do not work for DRET, you can see a collection of our featured resources on the page of the same name.

From the Home page you can also access our eBook library and DRET.TV as well.

We are hoping that others will now start contributing their resources, and there is a link at the bottom of the page for people to do so. As the library grows, we hope it to be one of the 'go-to' places in a teacher's arsenal of places to access lesson resources and content to enhance their teaching.
As primary subjects move to a common curriculum, the Resource Library is a perfect place for our teachers to share resources they have made to accompany the curriculum.

So External Hard Drives and Pen Drives are going to be banned...

We've taken the decision to ban external hard drives and pen-drives from all Trust computers and from all of our premises with effect from 1st January 2018. From that date they just won't work when you plug them into one of our computers. This article hopefully points the way for how to continue to work successfully without that trusted friend. 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…
