Creating the technology-rich school

Theme Solutions is now offering Professional Learning and Support for schools to ensure they get the most out of using technology to support student learning.

The African elephant has a reputation for being untameable and inclined to do exactly as it pleases, but with a keen intelligence and capacity for learning and collaboration that is unsurpassed in the animal world.

Ever felt like technology is the elephant in every classroom in your school?

Education systems and schools have long recognised the potential of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to transform learning and teaching. Technology devices and infrastructure are now embedded in the operation of schools and increasingly becoming standard tools in the teaching and learning process.

The place of ICT in K-12 education in Australia is recognised both in the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers and the Australian Curriculum. The value add that computer-aided instruction provides to student learning is increasingly apparent in the research. As far as the use of ICT in schools goes, we have gone beyond the tipping point. There is no turning back.

The questions now are:

  • how do schools harness the power of ICT?
  • how can school leaders ensure each school and school network becomes a successful user of technology to enhance teaching and learning?

Theme Solutions can help your school answer these questions by offering an integrated package of consultative professional services including:

  • support for planning and implementing sustainable technology-rich schools
  • professional learning for whole-school and in-class implementation of technology to enhance learning
  • coaching and mentoring, including shoulder-to-shoulder support
  • expert analysis and advice on your school’s technical environment
  • review and guidance on accountability and financial sustainability.
