The key objectives that are often overlooked

A key factor in the success of any device program in your schools will always be the software and apps you use to support your core aims; delivering excellent teaching and learning, and improving student outcomes. So what are the key factors to consider as a Senior Leader in your school?

  1. Is the platform suitable for the age ranges of your students?
  2. Will it work on patchy WiFi, or even offline?
  3. Is it easy and intuitive for staff and students to use?
  4. Does it support teacher workflows?
  5. Does it provide easy access to granular data for teachers and high level data for SLT?

Free trial with qualitative and quantitative data reporting

You can test our claims by running our free, managed trial process in a limited number of your classes. We'll even gather qualitative and quantitative data from the trial and share it with you in the form of a report. If you would like to discuss how a trial could work in your school, get in touch with our Schools Engagement Team.
