Our Case studies

We have put together a range of Case Studies that demonstrate the approaches made by different schools with different profiles and facing different challenges. Some of these are schools that we have been directly involved with and some are sourced from schools that have succeeded without our involvement. Some have also been prepared by other companies who believe, like us, that 1:1 programmes can be sustainable and can deliver significant improvements in many aspects of teaching and learning.

Some of these studies may be a few years old and may feature devices that are no longer available or considered the most suitable for purpose. At the time however these schools were considered trailblazing and the way they went about achieving their objective is as relevant today as it was when they were originally undertaken.

We have also included all of the Techknowledge for Schools Case studies. Although this charity now no longer exists, we found that we shared very  similar beliefs and objectives and so we are very pleased to be able to share their work with you.

We will add to this list as and when we are able.

St Wilfrid's Church of England Academy

St Wilfrid's Church of England Academy

In 2011 the school conducted research into the impact of environment and ICT on learning. The findings confirmed that IT should be used to inspire, rather than merely capture learning, and it should foster independent, literate, engaged learners with an appetite for learning which continues beyond the classroom. The result was that they became committed to ensuring 1:1 access to devices was critical, then they had to make it possible.
