35 years and a history of firsts, Targus, a leader in laptop cases and mobile computing accessories, has been connecting people and technology in meaningful ways.
Modern Governor is the leading online professional development service which supports the strategic role of school governors and academy trustees. Its modules are authored by governance experts and cover everything from the principles of governance to academy conversion, pupil premium, social media - and 98% of governors who use the service would recommend it to their colleagues. Personalised NGA-badged certificates can be downloaded as evidence of professional development. Subscription discounts are available for local authorities, federations, multi-academy trusts and academy chains.
Modern Governor’s responsive learning modules adapt to fit the screen of whatever device is being used – whether an Android phone, iPad, Windows desktop or Apple laptop. A governor’s progress through any of the modules is tracked, so a module can be started on a computer in an office, continued on a smartphone on the journey home and completed on a tablet in the evening.
The range of 30 modules currently available is scheduled to expand to over 50 by the end of the 2015 summer term and governors can trial a selection of the mobile-friendly modules for 30 days free of charge. In addition the free Modern Governor mobile app provides a searchable, offline glossary of education-related terms in any governor’s pocket or bag.
