effectiveness by embracing technology and the digital environment, and have commissioned an eGuide with Naace (the national association for all those interested in technology in education) in order to explain how document scanners can help to improve childrens’ learning and the work-life balance for school staff and teachers.  The impact of digitisation Through the digitisation of the classroom, the eGuide found that two main impacts can be achieved: 1. As information users can access what they need when they need it, there are savings on paper, copying and time compared to communications in a paper environment 2. It engages pupils by making the activities of the school much more visible, which can enhance learning achievements. In order for digitisation to be successful, pupils, teachers and parents need to have access to the internet, and digital images, scans or copies of information and resources need to be captured, posted and shared in the online learning environment. In addition, digitisation provides benefits across a number of key areas: ● Online learning support: By posting details of homework tasks online, a collaborative effort between pupils, parents and teachers can occur. In turn, pupils that share their work digitally with classmates are stimulated to make more effort with the task. ● Capturing evidence of pupils’ work and progress: work that is done digitally, or scanned and imaged, allows pupils’ to see their progress much more clearly. ● Professional development: paper copies of teachers’ professional development resources can be scanned and shared with others online. ● Parental support: as the costs of providing information on learning are removed, parents can better support their children to learn. ● Office systems: paper versions of pupil test papers, meeting notes and letters can be scanned and turned into word-processed or spreadsheet files.  [caption id="attachment_13729" align="alignnone" width="790"] Digitisation provides benefits across a number of key areas[/caption] Making the technology work A fear of technology, unwillingness to learn how to use new technology, or a reluctance to take responsibility for finding and accessing information can result in a disinclination to move from paper systems to online systems. Therefore, school leaders need to effectively lead this change by ensuring there are no excuses for an inability to get online, for example by removing paper processes and making sure that teachers can get online from wherever they work. Following this, once teachers know that all pupils can access online learning support in and out of the classroom, better learning outcomes can be achieved a result. Financial benefits By estimating the number of staff and pupil information sheets and letters to parents that are provided over a year, the eGuide found that: ● Savings of £8,000 could be achieved in a secondary school with 1,000 pupils and four lessons/day, where just one photocopied sheet is used in each lesson at a cost of 1p/sheet.  2,240 hours could be saved by 120 secondary school staff switching from photocopying to uploading. ● If each pupil saved 10 minutes a day by looking something up online which would otherwise cause hesitations in their work, this would amount to an extra week of learning over the year. Advantages of scanners Feed and flatbed scanners and visualiser-type devices have a number of advantages: ● They create high-quality images, ● Content is searchable and retrievable, ● Some can rapidly batch-scan, which allows the work of a whole class or a set of office papers to be digitised more quickly.

But what impact is this having on children and how can advancements in digital technology play a role? As part of the Third Millennium Learning Award for schools (run by Naace, the national association for all those interested in technology in education), nearly 100 schools submitted two videos which detailed their rationale for the practices they had adopted, and an insight into how these were developed. With that in mind, at Fujitsu we decided to commission a project with Naace in order to report on these schools’ views and practices and explain why capturing evidence of progress is important for staff and pupils alike. The importance of measuring progress and achievement  As achievement does not come without progress, and progress should also be related to levels of achievement, it is equally important for schools to measure both. The schools that took part in our project were able to resolve this issue of balance by focusing on the process of learning and how young people learn best, as well as creating a school-wide culture of high expectations and high standards of behaviour for learning.  As a result of our White Paper findings, we can determine that capturing evidence of progress is part of what is known as ‘the virtuous spiral’. By enabling students to play an active role in their learning, they boost their understanding of the progress they need to meet their targets. Furthermore, as they build confidence and self esteem they take a greater role in leading both their own learning and that of their peers, which in turn reinforces the positive feedback they initially receive from teachers. How progress has been measured The achievements of both young people and their schools are central to school accountability systems around the world. Historically, accountability measures for schools and pupils have focused mainly on achievement rather than progress; for example, with test scores being recorded in the teacher’s ‘markbook’. In many of today’s schools this practice continues, and formal assessments of pupils’ achievement are often still reported.  Furthermore, the schools that we studied have developed a process that pupils can follow to make progress in their learning, where they are encouraged to see and reflect on their current capabilities and also understand their shortfalls. As a result, the schools have found that pupils’ positive attitudes to learning and the higher engagement in learning activities are increased through the learning itself, rather than by any external incentive, reward or future promise of success.  Capturing evidence of progress in today’s digital world By using the digital environment to display pupil’s work, schools have enabled the key underpinning of the ‘virtuous spiral’ of improvement. In addition, the experiences of the schools that we worked with clearly demonstrates that technology enables them to radically increase the volume of progress evidence that is captured, as well as allow the ways that it is utilised to be expanded – something that Fujitsu scanners can help with. For example, a student’s work can be captured throughout the term as part of an ‘academic audit trail’, and Fujitsu’s overhead scanner, SV600, allows previously ‘unscannable’ work such as portfolios, 3D pieces of work and other art and design projects to also be captured electronically.
