Helpful beyond explanation…

Sandy Hastings - Beckenham School

Rob’s help, at the end of the phone and by clever use of Google Hangouts, for both small and complex technical support with getting the most out of google apps has been helpful beyond explanation, many times.

Rob knew my technical strengths and limitations, and provided instant assistance with my next step learning, enabling me to move forward independently with the task that I was working on.

Sandy Hastings, Principal

A partnership, a mentorship and a great on going decision…

John Petrie - Huapai District School - Testimonial

I tried several times to get my head and my staff across the line in using google doc’s and google sites. Having contracted Learning Architects to work remotely in a support and mentor role I achieved this and more.

Beyond the technical expertise, what really helped was the strategic, feet on the floor and considered recommendations. You don’t know what you don’t know so to have Rob push my thinking, share new ideas and guide into a better way was a huge win.

I see my schools’ connection with Learning Architects as a partnership, a mentorship and a great on going decision.

Built leadership capability within our school…

Tina Taylor - Tuakau School

Rob catered so well for our staff with the wide range of experiences and confidence using computers and familiarity with Google. He inspired staff and since the day we have had staff that are keen to try things and are using their computer so much more than they ever have.

Rob gave us a thorough introduction to the Google platform so that we have all been successful transitioning to being a GAFE school.

He also made things fun and our teachers loved the quiz that we created guessing random facts about each other using the collaborative nature of google docs.

Communication and follow up support was a real positive too. Rob was always available to interpret emails and explain in basic terms to us.

He built leadership capability within our school and the two of us who are super admins are able to do many of the admin tasks ourselves that we were previously paying others to do for us.

Sylvia Fidow - West Rolleston School

I really enjoyed the day and your facilitation of it. Thought the delivery was really relaxed but knowledgeable.

Great to see you sharing your expertise but also being a learner, not knowing all of the google pathways but problem-solving to get there. And your follow up has been outstanding!

Helped us to develop a system that is working very well for our Kāhui Ako

Sharon Marsh - principal

I have worked with Rob through our Kāhui Ako to develop the digital communication systems.

Rob’s ability to listen carefully, ask relevant questions and then develop systems collaboratively with our large Kāhui was greatly appreciated.

His knowledge and expertise were highly valued, together with his ability to connect with all members of the Kāhui at their own capability level in a respectful and constructive way.

His strong sense of what works well and how we can make use of this knowledge helped us to develop a system that is working very well for our Kāhui Ako.

Knowledge of how schools work and how to blend possibilities with technology is unique

David Taylor - principal
The Puketeraki Kāhui Ako Leadership Team employed Learning Architects very early in our development. We were aware that to connect leaders and teachers across seventeen schools we needed some form of digital communication system.
Rob Clarke sat in on our early management discussions and was able to co-construct a google on-line communication system. This system has been a building block for our Learning Community.
With simple ideas relating to naming protocols and filing to more complex google plus communities, Rob guided us through a process of development. We are by no means a finished product but we are currently functioning enthusiastically and building an effective learning community.
Thanks, Rob. Your knowledge of how schools work and how to blend possibilities with technology is unique and makes this sort of community building possible!
