Helping develop your Staff, Students and Curriculum to move your vision forward.
At HardSoft, we know we can supply and support your hardware. We are also very aware that training is essential to the success of any ICT deployment. If your school’s vision is 1:1 iPads for all pupils then we will engage with all parties and organise training for the SLT, Planning Team and ICT. But more than that we will train and boost the confidence of staff, roll out lesson plans and organise presentations for pupils and parents to discuss the benefits of iPad learning.
The introduction of new technology is often a daunting task for many teachers. However, with our training, we can improve their personal development and help bring teachers on board to see the true benefits to the student.
Ultimately we aim to ensure that new ICT is not just a substitute for existing learning but truly becomes part of your school’s learning process. On every Apple learning lab, HardSoft provides free of charge training for ICT professionals. We cover topics such as MDM management, Apple Volume Purchase Program setup, deployment of Apps to devices, day to day maintenance and integration to your existing server system, commonly using Active Directory.
Flexibility and knowledge are key to providing a constructive approach to improving the school’s curriculum. It will be your vision that drives the training forward and will dictate which staff areas are trained first to enable you to focus on particular areas.
HardSoft can adapt any training program to ensure we offer the best value for money. Traditional training days can be hard to organise with staff and recently we have found more success with staff training after school or during your weekly meetings. We are also happy to deliver one to one with staff, co-delivering with students or even come into the classroom to run a full iPad based lesson with you.
Developing your Vision
At this level, we’re looking to work with your planning team to achieve your goals with ICT. This training is with your SLT and geared towards the long-term management of your mobile device project.
HardSoft have a wealth of skills and expertise to help you plan, organise and look to the future. This may include meetings about changes to the Syllabus, planning for 1:1, integration with existing IT systems, wi-fi issues and testing new products.
