Case Study: Wilbraham Primary School

Using mobile technology to make enhance teaching and learning and improve pupil engagement.

iPads Making a difference at Wilbraham Primary School in Manchester

Due to the ever changing curriculum (with more to come in 2014!) and the ever present drive to use technology to improve standards in education, Wilbraham primary school has decided to roll out mobile devices to their classrooms over the past 12 months.

The main focus has been the use of Apple iPads.  By using these devices, the school have found that pupils are free to learn anywhere, and have removed the barriers associated with using traditional ICT, such as restrictive time slots.  Furthermore, due to the flexible and low-cost nature of the apps, pupils are able to find and use software tailored to their individual needs.  

Teacher comment:

By using mobile technology we have been able to move away from traditional ICT teaching.  Now we are able to use mobile technology to enhance teaching and learning in other areas of the curriculum.  Not only does the technology allow a different way of teaching and learning but has enabled us to improve pupil engagement in area’s of the curriculum where traditionally it has been difficult to improve attainment.

Computeam has been able to help at every stage of the process. Buying the equipment is only the start, and what really makes the difference with any investment in ICT is the training and support services that are provided.

There are now plenty of ways for teachers to take control of sets of iPads and direct the learning in a way that suits them. This ensures that personalised learning and discovery is balanced with firm lesson objectives and, where necessary, discipline in the classroom.

Computeam can also help to navigate the bewildering array of Apps out there. Our teams are always on the look out for good practice in our client schools and we try to share the best of what we see. 

Wilbraham Primary school will be expanding their use of tablets in classrooms based on the success they have achieved so far.
