Many schools have had iPads for a while and enjoy the creativity and the engagement they bring to the primary classroom. Tracking and managing work, however, can be a challenge. Seesaw really provides answers to many of these challenges and is free to use.
We are excited to tell you about Apple Teacher, a new professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate teachers. It offers self-paced learning with free learning materials, tips, inspiration and news to help teachers unlock the magic of iPad, Mac and built-in apps in your classroom.
We are well into the school year and also coming to the point where many schools decide how their technology budgets are spent. If you already have your kit and a great wifi set-up, you could be looking beyond the iPad and Chromebook to engaging add-ons like robots.
With rising technology costs and shrinking budgets, schools and education institutions are increasingly trying to find new ways to keep their classrooms up-to-date.
Does your wireless network keep letting you down? Is it disrupting lessons and frustrating your teaching staff? Are pupils left disappointed? Do visitors struggle to gain access? If this sounds familiar, then now is a great time to update your WiFi. We've teamed up...

For years, schools have had to buy additional accessibility software and hardware tools as an add-on to their choice of technology. Apple’s approach is, of course, very different.
Toucan is a great Mac company that we have been using since it started more than 20 years ago. Staff listen to your needs, treat you intelligently and provide great service. They're always prepared to go that extra mile. And, better still, they do it with a genuine smile.
I have every confidence to say that working with Toucan and Julian everything is possible. It's really pleasing to see how with you guys (all of Toucan) our school is turning into a completely different technology led school. Well done to everyone.
Gareth did a fantastic job. We were both very impressed with what he did which has got us where we need to be with our iPads.
Thanks again for your years of continued support and expert advice, it means a lot to us that we can always trust on you to provide nothing less than the best!. You always go the extra mile and I appreciate that.
Can I just say a big thank you to Gareth for the work he undertook at this week and the assistance he gave to our engineer Antony. Antony had nothing but good words to say about Gareth, his professionalism, work ethic and ability to train on the job. Antony feels the install was a great success and is now much more confident in managing this solution for the school going forward.
I meant to email you today to say how happy I was with Andrew's support on Monday. Everything I asked for was possible and completed. There was no moan, no fuss, no impossible thing. Andrew made our training day successful and complete. His patience was tremendous.
Julian's training was excellent. Staff were really engaged and motivated. We'll book him again!
