We can work with your setting and staff through means such as:

* Larger multi-attendance meetings and webinars focusing on tech areas and product overviews; plus in-depth practical applications for teachers and other school staff.
* Easily accessible online guidance materials, recordings and bespoke strategic plans.
With a specialist focus on primary education, our principal areas in current circumstances are:
* Choosing and using VLE platforms and associated EdTech software for teaching, communication and feedback, including Google Classroom, Seesaw, Class Dojo, Tapestry, Wonde Single Sign On, Screencastify, Book Creator.
* Understanding how to deploy and manage specific curriculum-based EdTech systems that children love to use and teachers can work with remotely.
