Harnessing Technology for Learning
Why Would You Explore Learning Technologies?
Technology can help schools overcome the time and resource constraints that persistently result in learners with SpLD performing poorly.
TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY CAN RAISE ATTAINMENT LEVELS FOR ALL.
SCHOOLs JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT.
We have researched and tested many educational technologies. This know-how is condensed into focused workshops, enabling us to help educators to quickly navigate the huge range of learning technologies available.
WE DO NOT SELL PRODUCTS SO WE ARE ABLE TO GIVE INDEPENDENT ADVICE.
Benefits of Hosting a Workshop?
The benefits of hosting a workshop are that schools can a tailor it to meet their specific requirements. We take into consideration the architecture, devices and limitations of a particular school’s IT set up, as well as the needs of students and teachers.
One size does not fit all: we seek to work closely and collaboratively with staff and students to provide the best possible IT solutions to enhance the whole school’s experience of learning and teaching.
We can share our extensive experience with schools, thereby saving extensive time researching solutions and avoiding unnecessary expenditure on sub-optimal products.
Raised ATTAINMENT LEVELS encourage PUPILS, PARENTS AND INSPECTORS.
Collaboration with parents
Parental sensitivities and unrealistic expectations can make SpLD difficult for teachers to manage positively.
Parents are often an under utilised resource. This can lead to frustation and irritation as they instinctively know their child needs additional support but they don’t know how to help.
We have a track record of enabling parents to support learning successfully. Afterall they have a vested interest in their childs success and are able to give valuable individual support that few schools are able to provide.
