Technology’s changing quickly in education

And it’s the key to delivering the best possible learning experience for every student you teach. With devices more affordable than ever, and the rising adoption of 1:1 programmes in schools and colleges, personalised learning experiences are now a reality.

And it’s a reality based in the cloud.

You need connectivity that’s fit for cloud-based learning

A device for every pupil empowers a student-centred approach to all aspects of teaching and learning. Students can learn in the way that suits them best, using a wealth of cloud-based apps and internet resources.

Teachers can use classroom management apps to get better visibility of student progress. Not to mention more streamlined ways to set, assess and give meaningful feedback on work.

As the number of students and teachers using cloud-connected devices grows, so do the demands on your school or college’s internet connection.

Technology is empowering. But it can only ever be as good as your connectivity.
