TEACHING AND LEARNING
See differences in access to technology. Plan how to bring consistency at best value
Built around the Department for Education’s EdTech Strategy, it attributes a traffic light rating to each classroom according to the effectiveness of its technology. This is based on up to 25 metrics per classroom ranging from the brightness of the projector, the training level of the teacher, the licence status of the teaching software and lots more. It also considers technology in your reception, school hall, outdoor areas and elsewhere.
The findings are collated into a detailed hard copy report, explained and discussed at a consultation meeting. We also provide independent advice around reducing teacher workload, improving inclusion, reducing costs and ideas as to your next steps.
How does the Classroom Healthcheck work?
We’ll visit your school to conduct a thorough audit using our exclusive Classroom Healthcheck iPad Application, before presenting you with a detailed hard copy report.
It includes a full page of up to 25 metrics per classroom, alongside a summary of each teaching space and photography to show objectively how the technology is performing. A photo can, for example, show the pupils’ learning experience when looking at the interactive whiteboard.
We also take a few brief moments to talk to the teachers to learn first hand about their experiences, confidence, challenges, aspirations and successes.
The findings enable decision-makers to plan and prioritise procurement, assess individual staff training needs, ensure compliance with software licencing, understand standstill operating costs and support an improved ICT Development Plan.
