Re. IRIS Connect – Sharing teaching excellence through collaboration
As a school we are deeply committed to providing the highest quality of education to pupils.
In order to do this, we must also provide the best learning experiences for our teachers.
We are delighted to announce that we will be using ‘IRIS Connect’, an innovation in teacher professional development to ensure that our teachers have the opportunity to develop to their full potential.
As part of the [school's/ITT/ECF] [training/CPD] programme, our [teachers/trainees] have access to the IRIS Connect platform which enables them to record their teaching, reflect upon how they can improve, and to share with their [colleagues/mentor] to get feedback and advice. This approach has been shown to improve the quality of mentoring support we can provide and help [new teachers settle into their new role more effectively/our teachers improve their teaching through coaching and mentor support].
The system being used is completely secure, GDPR compliant and encrypted in the same way as your online banking. The videos themselves may only be shared with education professionals approved
by the school and are visible to no one else. The videos recorded will only be used to
improve teaching and will remain on the IRIS Connect secure servers.
As the process has the potential to record personal information, we have updated our
privacy notice which may be reviewed [here].
If you need any further information or if you have any questions regarding this, please get in touch.
