Helping you in school
It’s not about the technology – it’s how you use it…
Over the last 12 months we have seen an unprecedented pace of change in technological options that can be used in school. This poses numerous possibilities for you to consider and choices for how to invest to best support teaching and learning.
We can help you make the right choices to get the best impact on learning from your investment. Points to consider… it’s not all about the technology, it’s what you do with it that makes the all difference.
Are you ready for the new computing curriculum?
Will you stretch your pupils enough?
What can you do differently on different devices?
Are all your staff confident?
Are your staff, pupils and parents eSafety aware?

A recent report said...
"There was no question that hardware such as interactive whiteboards, digital tablets or software such as educational games could help improve pupils' learning if used properly. But they say that too often they are used without a strong understanding of their power to transform education, and many schools still use technology to support 20th century teaching methods and learning objectives."
