At Academia, we understand the challenges faced by schools, academies and academy trusts. The classroom and curriculum is evolving rapidly with schools being asked to improve the digital capacity of both students and staff, embrace curriculum changes and improve grades, whilst budgets continue to be reduced.
Our schools specialists
Our dedicated team of schools specialists are experienced in providing IT solutions to overcome these challenges. We work with a number of prestigious vendors including Apple, HP, Microsoft and Adobe to deliver the best in hardware and software to institutions.
Support Contracts for Schools
Academia understands the challenges and demands faced by schools with digital learning becoming a key component of the curriculum. Pressure to deliver high quality to students is high for IT departments and sometimes
extra support is useful.
With over 12 years of experience in education, we have developed a comprehensive and all-encompassing approach to working with schools, colleges and universities to help you to create technology-rich learning environments. Our approach has 3 main steps, which we break down into subsections to create a 9 step tailored process for your establishment.
Transforming teaching and learning
It is important to have a clear goal before you begin any project so our team will work with you to establish a clear path for transforming teaching and learning. We understand that ultimately, you want to use technology to raise standards and enhance the learning environment for students. We work with you to create:
Definition of a clear aim and vision for the project is the key starting point
Assembly of a leadership team who will own, plan and implement future learning initiatives
Engagement of local community, stakeholders, parents/students to create support and interest in the project
Enabling teacher/student collaboration with technology
Once you’ve implemented new technology in the classroom, you can begin to foster an environment of collaboration between teachers and students to enhance learning. We work with you to ensure:
Creation of a supportive workplace for staff which facilitates continual professional development and best practice use of technology
Exploration and understanding of new tools, materials and peripherals to enhance student learning
Success is measured
Use of tools such as TPACK and SAMR to measure the progress of your vision
