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 MAT?

  1. Is the platform suitable for all age ranges across your MAT?
  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?

Pilot with qualitative and quantitative data reporting

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