School Improvement Plans: Formative Practices for Teaching & Learning


Nurture teamed up with Microsoft Ireland for this webinar to show how improving learning outcomes through quality formative assessment can be done. Nurture achieves this by closing the feedback loop, capturing both student confidence and reflection all within Microsoft Teams.

The speakers for this event were:

  • Ger Hogan (Deputy Principal at Kinsale Community School)
  • Gearoid Hegarty (All Ireland Hurler of the Year & Post-Primary Teacher- Desmond College, Limerick)
  • Stephen Comiskey (Doctor of Educational Technology)
  • David Neville (Founder of Nurture)

In this webinar we dived into: 

  • Introduction to Nurture.
  • Why schools need to try things without fear of failure.
  • Kinsale Community Schools 'Digital Leadership Modal'.
  • Why the focus needs to be on how to facilitate two way feedback.
  • School kids not actually being the digital natives we assume they are.
  • The importance of asking questions with Gearoid Hegarty (All Star Irish Hurler).
  • Demonstration of Nurture in Microsoft Teams.

Here was the clip we found most interesting by Ger Hogan on Kinsales 'buddy system' for getting all teachers more comfortable with new technologies. Access the full webinar via the form below.
