Overall learning goal

By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Have a clear understanding of the organisation, implementation and uses of Lumix across the English school community

  • Have shared their knowledge and experience of using Lumix to gather student data

  • Have learned valuable tips and tools, from other boards, for using Lumix in their school board

  • Have created and be part of a supportive cross-board network of Lumix users in order to benefit from each other’s experiences and expertise and gain the most out of the database.

Instructional design


The Facilitator of the first Lumix fair, organised and presented by the Evidence Based Practice (EBP) Project, welcomes all the participants to the one day session.  The participants include IT and Educational Services Department (ESD) directorate administrators and professionals from seven english school boards, along with MELS-SCAAAPN and the members of Partnership Agreement Team.


The purpose of the day is shared.  It is to provide an opportunity for exchange between Lumix users and to create an informal network that will encourage the sharing of information and resources. The agenda is set out.

Activity 1: Participant survey

Participants are asked to complete a brief informal survey to gather their perceptions regarding various elements of Lumix, including its level of implementation, who has access, organizational and professional development support offered, and the types of data being used.


Activity 2: School board presentations

Each participating schools board has prepared and delivers a 45 minute presentation on the use of Lumix in their board.  They all cover five topics:

  • Who can access what type of data in Lumix?
  • What type of support has been provided to users?
  • How is the clientele using Lumix data?
  • What are your future development plans with regards to the use of Lumix?
  • What lessons did you learn?

Following each presentation, participants ask questions, discuss and  share information about the status of implementation in their respective boards, as well as the challenges they face.

Participants are given some time to mingle with users from other schools boards.


The day concludes with a brief synthesis of some of the perceptions recorded during the informal survey, and the main points covered by each of the presenting boards.


Participants are asked to complete feedback forms, including what they were expecting, what they experienced, and what they hope for next time.
