Our EdTech Hub, based at Shacklewell Primary School, is proud to be a part of the Department for Education's national EdTech Demonstrator Programme.
We provide support and training for schools to develop their digital strategy and implement technology as an effective tool to enhance learning.
The New Wave Federation have always maintained a commitment to technology and we have had our own EdTech strategy for a number of years. Since 2015 we have held Apple Distinguished Schools status, recognised for our innovative use of iPad in the classroom. Our expert team of Google Certified and Apple Distinguished Educators, have a range of expertise across different software, platforms and devices.
In 2020, we were selected as an EdTech Demonstrator school for our effective use of technology and capacity to help others. During the first phase of the Edtech Demonstrator Programme we supported schools with the rapid implementation of online learning platforms to facilitate remote learning, we designed personalised training packages that enabled staff to further improve their skill set with digital tools to create and share content. We also worked closely with senior leaders to lead strategy sessions.
Technology has the power to support the creation of a more accessible curriculum, it can help reduce workload and it is a brilliant tool to facilitate learning recovery. Our team is uniquely placed to support primary schools at any stage of their implementation and delivery of an EdTech strategy.
- The creation or refinement of a digital strategy focused on a whole school culture to improve pupil outcomes;
- The deployment of iPad in a school setting;
- The use of GSuite to facilitate improved learning and increased collaboration between colleagues;
- Establishing support for families to most appropriately support their children with technology.
