What the judges said...

This nomination involved a complex strategic change process to meet a critical business need. In effect, it is a business transformation initiative.

The empowerment of teachers and principals, improving collaboration and improving real time data usage are all key outcomes of the project.

Using a web portal that provides classroom teachers and school leaders with real-time data about every single student through a single entry point is a significant innovation.

The humanising elements incorporated within the tool are impressive – the student isn’t just a name and a string of data. They have a photo; a profile, parents and a story that helps reinforce the connection between teacher and student.

Video Transcript

One of the most positive aspects of edi is the ability to develop and produce student profiles.

So as students move through the school and different teachers have access and interactions with different kids, teachers can pull up individual profiles for their classes and for their students...

...therefore being able to develop strong relationships with their kids because they have access to information around their previous academic attainment as well as any other significant issues that are going on in that student's life.

So it's been a massive game changer in the way that teachers relate to kids because they've got that background information which they need to have in order to put in place current learning plans.
