Documents given to the Times Education Supplement reveal how Ark believes the new model will allow teachers’ roles to be ‘revised’. Other schools using the system have introduced new roles that include ‘master teachers’ responsible for ‘leading full-class or small group instruction’ while the computers take on more of the routine tasks. Teachers in the new computer schools could also be responsible for ‘leading small group instruction’ or the ‘supervision of online learning’. An ARK spokesman today said: ‘Our plans are at a very early stage, but it is worth reflecting that our blended learning pilot at King Solomon Academy did not mean fewer teachers or bigger classes, but ensuring that pupils have access to the latest in educational technology and techniques. ‘The school is rated outstanding by Ofsted and results have been improving every year, above national averages. High quality teaching is at the core of the ARK approach, and helps our schools to achieve excellent standards.’
