Closing the Learning Gap in English Dandelion Learning

The need for a robust and innovative digital education platform has become a priority for schools.
In March 2020, the sudden school closure situation brought the unprecedented challenge to deliver effective distance learning at short notice. Understandably, not all schools were prepared for this situation and it has been a learning curve for both teachers and pupils.
As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to disrupt local communities, school lockdowns and isolation of individual pupils remain a possibility.
The platform of choice for thousands of schools nationwide has been G Suite for Education as it provides the most innovative solutions for teachers to deliver lessons.
Most teachers will be familiar with some of the services Google provides (such as Gmail) and will confidently embrace the Google Classroom and Google Meet tools.
Create virtual classrooms where teachers can share interactive worksheets, self-marking quizzes, and just about any kind of document that can be used as part of an assignment.
Broadcast lessons to groups of up to 50 pupils in a secure environment embedded into Google Classroom. Many schools have chosen to host staff and parent meetings online.
If you are still using a school server to store and share documents, you potentially will have faced significant remote access issues during the school closure period. Google Drive offers schools secure, unlimited cloud storage and real time collaboration.
“This is a challenging time for UK schools, educators, parents and students and this initiative by the Department for Education provides vital support to schools seeking to enable remote learning.”
Liz Sproat, Head of Education, Google EMEA
The Department for Education has released funding to assist eligible schools to adopt G Suite for Education as their Digital Education platform.
Schools can complete the form above and a Google Cloud Partner will be randomly assigned to work with them. However, schools can opt to choose a partner that you would like to work with.
Online safety is always a priority at 123ICT and its dedicated consultants will demonstrate how staff members can use the included security features.
123ICT Computing Solutions specialises in working with schools to develop their digital education platform and its team of education consultants have trained and supported hundreds of teachers both during and prior to Covid-19.
The schools that it supports have adapted to working remotely and are providing a reliable and easy to use education platform enabling lessons to be delivered regardless of physical attendance.
A full implementation and introductory training session for teaching staff will be provided with your DfE package.
Enquire with the team today by calling 01993 848 291 or emailing DistanceLearning@123ict.co.uk.
Alternatively, please sign up to the programme by completing this form. Choose 123ICT as your preferred partner, and someone from the team will be in touch! Before completing the deployment they will also carry out a free assessment of your school’s DfE funding eligibility.
