Initial Teacher Training
Video-enabled education technology that’s revolutionising remote ITT
Over the last few months, exposure to technology and digital learning has been greater than ever before. Teachers, and those responsible for training teachers, have needed to develop new skills and new approaches to adjust to the changing demands in ITT.
With continuing restrictions in place, tutors are finding it increasingly difficult to meet with mentors and trainees in the field. And the traditional ways of being able to make judgements on progress, provide efficient and quality feedback, and combat the feeling of isolation experienced by trainees and mentors is proving ever-challenging.
The use of education technology in supporting ITT has had to take priority.
Watch the video below from Andy Newell, Managing Director of IRIS Connect where he shares solutions to the challenges faced by ITT providers currently and offers a sustainable solution for the future of education technology to support initial teacher training.

The most significant gain is not only saving 20-40 traveling days per teacher educator but more importantly, it is the feedback received from the student teachers. Those who have used IRIS Connect have reported that the recordings and reflections are significant tools for supporting their professional development.
