The Next PL Project partnership with Swan Christian College is continually responding to our learning needs. We are very satisfied with the work Shane has completed with our staff and the support he continues to give for our parent nights. I have no hesitation in recommending both Paul and Shane in regard to their professionalism and experience in education, they are always available and willing to share in whatever context we require.
Next Learning was formed at the nexus of learning and technology. Our educators saw devices and applications being utilised without significant benefits. The relevant questions were simply not being asked. Why use technology for a particular learning task or process? How will it assist teachers in the delivery of learning outcomes? What integrated strategies best engage 21st century learners?
Next PL consultants are skilled in optimising the application of technology and usually work on-site to support educators. We also assist schools with communication tools and the delivery of online learning. Our focus is cost-effective investment in human resources.
We offer comprehensive assessments of technology usage, efficacy and future needs. We examine leadership, pedagogy and infrastructure to develop strategies that will have clear and enduring impacts on education outcomes and organisational productivity.
Our in-house web design team provides customised and user-oriented interface platforms. Understanding the value of a portable communications hub for all stakeholders on and off campus, we specialise in mobile compatibility and inbuilt communication tools.
Research-based innovation to deliver positive change is our passion. Through Next Projects, we conduct needs assessments, develop ICT-related curriculum content and evaluate impacts. Our goal is to enable and empower school communities through cutting edge solutions.
Some schools we have worked with
We created the unit with the help of Paul Reid and Shane McGurk from Next Learning. Since we introduced new units through New Courses, our enrolment numbers have increased four and five-fold. This technology partnership allows us to accommodate that increase. We really think it is the way forward, and look forward to working with Next Learning in additional teaching and learning initiatives.
