At Smartmove we are passionate about professional development. For years we have been introducing the latest and best technologies into education – impacting on teaching and learning. Now, a leading reseller of iRIS Connect – we’ve never been more excited about a new product.
IRIS Connect is an innovation in professional development for use in all industries where staff development and motivation is seen as paramount to success. It provides a way to motivate your staff by giving them the ability to discover their strengths and work as a team towards their development objectives.
Using a unique combination of video camera coupled with an easy to use online portal, users can record on the job performance, review their practice and save comments for their personal development or to share as best practice for the benefit of colleagues.
iRIS Connect allows teachers to review their teaching through video playback, clever software and a shared or live observation. The unique mobile system is the much anticipated result of research from a joint project by an American and English University into creating the most effective CPD environment and process for schools.
It allows teachers to self review their teaching and as they develop they can share with trusted colleagues specific time stamped comments with video to create a professional dialogue for professional and school improvement.
IRIS Connect was developed as the result of detailed research undertaken at Universities in the UK and America into professional development techniques and emerging technologies. Studies showed that traditional methods of professional development often have little impact on the adoption of new practice and that mentoring and coaching utilising remote observation, the collection of observational data and time-linked commentaries greatly increases training efficiency. By engaging in professional dialogue using immediate, contextual and actionable information you can address individual training needs and encourage the adoption of best practice.
IRIS Connect is simple to use, effective and easily adopted. Whether you are a teacher, a coach or in charge of Professional Development for your organisation, each user has their own secure online account which is protected by state of the art security measures and encryption.
