How to begin Digital Transformation at School – after EduTech

No school is equal… Every Transformation is different   In all our time in working with schools it has become increasingly clear that no school is the same. Every school has different goals, different challenges and different priorities. That being said, all go through a remarkably similar process to tackle digital transformation, albeit with different processes and outcomes in mind. Last week at Edutech 2016 we presented the four, “not too simple” steps toward digital transformation to which just about any school can relate.  The reason I say they are “not so simple” is that at first glance it looks like a sensible linear approach to start digitising data and automating processes, but …

Step by Step Digital Transformation after EduTech

I loved Edutech this year with exciting presentations about how the digital world can change your brain (Baroness Susan Greenfield) and insights from students who have created their own apps/followers/companies all whilst studying for significant exams. But I was struck by the focus on classroom digital transformation. I do understand that that is where the school’s core business lies but digital transformation in administration is equally important and the flow of data and information between the two business areas is critical for improving student experience and learning outcomes. Imagine that your budding entrepreneur registers for your school and you have captured all that information upfront in your application process. Your teachers can create …

Digitise to Differentiate – why businesses can’t compete without data

Everyone from the CEO to the small-business owner now recognises the value of data, and the significant innovation and efficiency dividends which it can yield. This value, however, isn’t intrinsic to data itself; it arises when decision-makers analyse that data, and use the resulting insights to power business improvements or innovations. And data can only be effectively analysed when it’s digital – unfortunately, huge volumes of enterprise information are not. In order to harness the power of data or develop more automated, mobile-optimised processes, businesses must first develop reliable workflows for digitising as much information as possible in their daily operations. You can’t understand what you can’t see As we have seen, digitisation …

Activity-Based Working – Lessons for the future

In a luncheon held by Fuji Xerox Australia in Sydney recently, I was privileged to facilitate a discussion between a panel of industry experts who spoke about their experiences in the deployment of activity-based working within their own organisations. Discussions ranged from where to start (by talking to staff about their needs and peers about what they have learned in their own deployments) to how to measure and continually improve the experience. The overwhelming conclusion is that there is not a single “right” way to introduce flexible workspaces and there is not a “one size fits all” but we can all learn from each other. The panel was made up of professionals from …

How Big Data can enable Education

At a lunch last week with some of the most forward thinking Victorian and Catholic Education business managers and educators we looked at the impact of Big Data amongst some of the other key trends in education (word cloud below shows a variety of trends).     Whilst there are concerns about privacy and security of data, when (especially big data from a variety of sourced) used responsibly it can deliver so many benefits. Data collected from student records, classroom interactions, test results or even learning environments (games and collaboration areas) can tell us a lot about the students, their interests, their learning styles, their strengths and challenges. This data can be used by teachers …

Document Management Technology Roadmap – A CIO’s Vision

Recent research conducted by Fuji Xerox Singapore shows that whilst businesses are interested in cloud computing and mobility to make information available for their workers, and to enhance their document management requirements, many are still concerned about security when sharing information via the cloud. Of the 150 respondents that were surveyed, it was found that only 11 percent are considering a full-scale implementation of cloud computing. Rather, the respondents view cloud computing as enhancing elements of information distribution, and reducing physical storage space for data. Respondents surveyed came from business organisations with at least 100 employees and from different vertical industries. Respondents did favour mobile computing as a way to increase productivity and …
