DESCRIPTION
The Naace ICT mark is a quality based on the Self-review Framework (SRF). The framework provides a structure for reviewing your school’s use of technology and its impact on school improvement.
COMMENTS
To receive the Naace ICT mark, schools need to apply and to fill an online tool. An ICT mark assessor contacts the school to fix an on-site assessment.
TEACHERS' COMMENT
Naace stands for National Association of Advisors for Computers in Education. Naace is a community of teachers, school leaders, advisors, consultants and commercial partners based in the UK who work on developing the role of technology in education. Members and sponsors of the Naace come from both the private and public sector. As a member you get access to various journals and research papers. You can also access their Self-Review Framework, this is to help you determine how effectively you are implementing educational technology in your school. Membership varies from free (limited access) to £100 per year (unlimited access).
The Naace offers practical information, resources, guidance and support to its members relating to educational technology. It also engages in consultations and provides a range of professional development opportunities. The Naace believes that technology has a major role to play in increasing learning and engagement in the curriculum when used correctly.
The Naace encourages schools to use their Self Review Framework, this is to help schools to: understand where they are in their technology strategy, plan the next stages of their technology strategy and record their process. When they have completed this the Naace offers two forms of recognition for schools: the NaaceMark, which schools can apply for online and The Third Millennium Learning Award (3MLA) which enables schools to demonstrate how they are providing education for the 21st century. The 3MLA is a natural next step after schools have gained the NaaceMark.
