05 Sep The Modern Governor app – your free education glossary
At Modern Governor we spend a lot of time learning – from the thousands of school governors who use the Modern Governor service, from colleagues within Learning Pool, from schools and, of course, from the wealth of resources available online. If you’ve ever stepped in to the world of education – as a governor, a parent of a school-age child, a new member of staff or in any other capacity – you’ll know that letters, meetings and reports can sometimes be overrun with acronyms, jargon and conventions – hence there’s a lot to learn to become fluent in the language of what can seem like a foreign country.
With that in mind, we’re proud to launch the first version of the Modern Governor mobile app. This app gives a searchable glossary of terms used in schools and education and is free – you don’t have to be a Modern Governor subscriber to download and use it. It’s invaluable for governors and will also be helpful for parents, NQTs, ITT students, or anyone else starting out in school in any capacity. If you have constructive feedback on or suggestions for the app then we’d love to hear it – please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is very much a first release of the app – we have plans to expand and develop it to be an even more useful tool to support governors and governing bodies. There will be a further blog post out shortly with more detail on how the app works, but it’s a straightforward download from the Google Play Store and is now available in the Apple iTunes App Store.
