Technology management

Do you have a mixed economy of devices? Why? 

'You have to see what works best for your children. So we would visit schools to see what they're doing and how it's working and then trial it out in a classroom or a Year Group in our school, maybe as a teacher research group, to trial something out and then to feedback to the wider teaching community and make a decision from there'

Bernard McNerney  - Lansbury Lawrence Primary School

How do you manage the change related to technology investment?

'We bought new computers for every single department that use them on a daily basis. We also looked at replacing all of our access points so that the laptops could access our network effectively. Every single faculty now has two laptop trolleys that they're able to access whenever they need them.

So when we had to start teaching in bubbles, we had so many laptops on trolleys ready that we could actually provide every classroom with the laptops they needed. So that really worked really well for us'

Samantha Bullen - School Business Manager, Swanlea School

Device ratios – How can the required change be managed? 

'If children are going to use technology effectively and staff are going to rely on it as an essential part of their toolkit, then it needs to be as accessible as possible. And the way that we need to do that is working towards one to one devices.'

Owen O'Regan - Headteacher - Lansbury Lawrence
