IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Digital Education Platforms

Posted 13/05/2020 13:48

As you may have seen in the Government communications, they are recommending using either Google or Microsoft digital education platforms to support and deliver remote learning.

Other suppliers may be marketing you to take advantage of Government funding to move to one of these platforms.  As a valued customer of ICT Solutions, we can offer advice, guidance and provision your platform free of charge if you register your interest before 31st May 2020.   

What is a digital education platform?

It's a place where your pupils' learning experience at home can continue as close to normal as possible. The platforms are purpose-built for remote learning in a way that a school website isn't. 

In short, if you get set up on one of the platforms, you'll be able to:

  • Assign and assess work, providing feedback remotely
  • Communicate with staff, students and parents in real time, using written word, voice and video
  • Facilitate collaboration between groups of pupils and teachers

For either G-suite for Education or Microsoft 365 we can offer:

  • Set up your own tenant, ensuring security and compliance
  • Provision user accounts for staff and students
  • Migrate your existing emails across to your new platform/tenancy
  • Set up Microsoft teams or Google Classroom for all classes or as per your requirements
  • Enable Microsoft Teams video or Google Meet video calling and live meets 
  • Provision online secure shared files areas
  • Provide online training and webinars – 1 hour free training will be included in your set up package

To help you establish which platform is right for you, a comparison guide is now available here

To register your interest please complete this form and we will be in touch with you shortly to discuss your requirements  

We are working directly with both Microsoft and Google Education teams for remote support best practice.  

Join us for a Microsoft teams broadcast on Thursday 14th May at 10.00 am to find out more about Remote Learning with Microsoft tools.  (We hope to have a Google one soon as well)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Census and Assessment Guidance

Posted on 22/04/2020

In light of the current Coronavirus Pandemic the DfE have cancelled or paused all but the most essential data collections, services and requests from all educational and care settings until the end of June 2020. This means that the both the School and Pupil Census Summer 2020 and Statutory Assessments have been cancelled. Therefore, we will not be publishing any guides on our website on how to run the census or complete assessments until we have further guidance from the DfE.
