With the proliferation of mobile learning and BYOD, Angus Council were looking for a wireless network provider capable of delivering seamless mobility throughout the council and its schools.

European Electronique teamed up with Meru Networks to implement a solution that would support the growing requirement for mobile learning and embrace new approaches such as BYOD across a large number of geographically dispersed sites.

Angus Council’s IT department comprises of 70 education establishments and 90 corporate locations. Whilst most of the sites did not previously have wireless installed, those that did struggled to support the high density of devices and as such wasn’t sufficient to deliver mobile learning and BYOD methods on a large scale.

As part of an infrastructure refresh, Angus Council worked with European Electronique to implement a Meru wireless network that would facilitate simple, centralised management and also allow the administrator to monitor and troubleshoot locations miles apart.

The solution has helped Angus Council to embrace new ways of working. In schools, there has been a significant increase in the use of mobile technologies in the curriculum, whilst in corporate locations, the new solution has enabled the council to introduce more agile working methods and hot desking efficiencies.

The impact of the solution has had a far more reaching effect as additionally it has been rolled out to provide public WiFi to the libraries and leisure centres in Angus, as well as being used for the referendum and General Election count.

Commenting on the successful implementation of the project, Steve Roud, Service Manager Information Technology at Angus Council said: “Our investment in our infrastructure was significant and we needed to ensure we were working with the right partner. EE supported us from beginning to end, advising and guiding us to the best solution. We are really pleased with the impact of the technology – it just works!”

Here at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy we’ve been looking at how we make learning better. Challenging ourselves to understand what makes a difference and what will give our learners the vital edge in their future lives. We always knew technology was essential but there are other things we knew we needed to look at.

Working with James Penny from our technology partner European Electronique we’ve come up with a new way of thinking about all the things that we think need considering when looking at creating a truly great learning environment. We’ve grouped these under the title of an Educational Digital Maturity Index – EDMI. This defines six areas where we think it is essential to think hard and ask questions about what you are doing. During our session at BETT we’ll explore the index in more detail and share what we think the index really means in terms of education impact. In preparation for the session we’ve shared the six areas below with some of the questions and ideas we’ll explore.

High quality leaders are essential but how do leaders use technology? How do they encourage others to use technology? Is the use of technology fully embedded into their vision for the organisation? How does their vision for technology support enhanced outcomes?

High quality teachers are essential – Are teachers confident about using technology? Do they have technology embedded into their pedagogical practice? Do teachers share their great practices between each other? Do teachers use technology to teach and work across areas of knowledge?

Are your students ready? We often think of students as the master of technology but often they need as much support as everyone else. Are all students confident in using technology? Are all students able to access and use technology? Does the use of technology support students to perform better?

Is your curriculum digitally ready? Without a review of the curriculum technology can often not be fully exploited. Have leaders and teachers reviewed the curriculum to ensure that technology is being used effectively? Have curriculum activities been specifically designed to make effective use of what technology can offer? Will the curriculum take advantage of the opportunities for out of school learning? CPD is embedded here as a pre-requisite of delivering great learning.

Is your technology Infrastructure ready? Has the infrastructure been designed to support the multiple personal devices that might be deployed? Has the connectivity been checked to see if it is sufficient? Has the active network infrastructure been configured to support the data it will need to process? Has the wireless infrastructure been designed to support the device strategy?

How will you use classroom spaces, buildings and your entire campus? Traditional classrooms and ICT suites support certain types of technology. What happens when you suddenly introduce mobile devices? Are traditional learning spaces suitable for mobile personal learning? Do classrooms have the spaces and facilities to make mobile learning successful?

Gary will be speaking in the Schools Learn Live: Secondary theatre on Friday 23 January at 4.45pm. His session will be titled “21st Century school - Learning without boundaries”.

What do you think have been the key technological developments in the education sector this year? 

A key development this year has been the growth of the Cloud. Both public Cloud, like Google and Microsoft offerings, and the ability to use private Cloud storage to build a school network offsite and therefore support the growth of BYOD. The Government is pushing procurement through G Cloud and this will very quickly influence education. Add to this the digital by default approach from government where public services are being moved online, and we have an exciting set of developments for education. 

Will security issues threaten the development of BYOD in schools?

The ability to secure networks when taking a BYOD route is well understood. Mobile Device Management (MDM) products are now very well developed and can secure and protect whilst giving access to the necessary resources. 

MOOC adoption has grown massively during 2014, do you think this type of learning is now more widely accepted as an educational tool? 

MOOCs are making an impact in Further and Higher Education. The recent FELTAG report from the government is aiming to get at 10 per cent of all learning content in FE online. This will push ahead the adoption of digital content and MOOCs will play a part.

Has the UK kept up with the rest of the world on 2014’s developments? Are there any key nations out in front?

The UK continues to lead the world. We have a broader understanding of how technology supports outstanding schools. Our teachers are leading a rapid reform movement and embedding technology into the learning proceeds. 

What have we learned about edtech in 2014 that will help us develop next year and beyond? 

The Technology in Education report that the Government endorsed in 2014 laid out the challenges and progress we have made. There are barriers around connectivity and funding but they can be solved, and a push by government will move this ahead very quickly. The ETAG group is now looking at the wider landscape and will report in September to ministers on how to move the technology agenda forwards.

The expert group was put together in response to a request from the UK Department for Education to identify emerging solutions to the barriers facing schools and other learning organisations in using technology to improve learning outcomes.

The report, titled: ‘Technology in Education: A System View’, is written by James Penny, Solutions Director at European Electronique and Ian Fordham and Ty Goddard, Co-founders of The Education Foundation – with the contribution of leading educators, industry leaders and academics.

The report has found that:

  • Technology must be more strategically linked to achievement and learning in all schools.
  • Collaboration should drive knowledge and advice sharing on a central website accessible for all teachers.
  • Universal high quality access to broadband in all schools would deliver significant benefits.
  • Schools should adopt cloud-based technology with choice of devices based on flexibility and total cost of ownership to make considerable savings
  • The use of technology to improve achievement must be recognised more prominently and systematically in inspection.
  • The need to create an accountability frameworks with clear guidance best practice.

Andy Griffiths, President of Samsung UK and Ireland commented: “We believe that technology has a significant role to play in opening doors for the leaders of tomorrow, equipping them with the skills necessary to meet the needs of the ever evolving economy.  

“We embrace our responsibility to help make this a reality and so Samsung was delighted to support this report, which includes the advice and experience of many leaders in this field. I hope that this report helps facilitate discussion and work as a guide for teachers as they work to integrate technology into the classroom.”

Ian Fordham and Ty Goddard, Co-founders of the Education Foundation said: “Too often technology reports focus on “scenarios for the future” that cannot be predicted and therefore leave school and education leaders, governors and budget holders difficult decisions such as – how to deal with the present day reality, what do we spend our money on and how do we get appropriate technology into our classrooms that teachers can use to support their learning.

“This report is a lot more pragmatic and starts from the reality of what’s needed now and in the next few years – and identifies the key barriers that need to be removed to finally realise the potential of technology, to change the lives of young people in schools and other learning organisations across the UK.”

 The £50m turnover firm, based in Oxford, has been awarded Lots 1 (provision of networking equipment) and 2 (small and medium projects up to £1m in value) of the North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium’s (NEUPC) national networking framework.

NEUPC is the body focused on improving quality of procurement across the HE and FE sector and delivering maximum value from the purchase of good and services.

The agreement will see European Electronique supply networking services and equipment for a minimum of two years, to potentially up to 400 HE and FE members, including the University of Leeds and Durham University.

Speaking of the recent award, Neil Kerry, framework manager at European Electronique said: “Our presence on this and other HE and FE frameworks including the National Education Printer Agreement (NEPA), National Desktop Notebook Agreement (NDNA) and National Server & Storage Agreement, means that our education sector clients can benefit from aggregated buying through a recognised HE framework, as well as benefiting from a single supplier partnership with European Electronique across its entire IT estate.”

Yolanta Gill, CEO of European Electronique added: “In recent years, we have been very active within the higher education sector, providing IT services to University of York and University of Wales Trinity St David’s to name a couple.

“Being re-appointed to the NEUPC framework reflects our continued commitment to the sector and ability to provide high quality services at good value. We are looking forward to working closely with a number of universities in updating and improving their network and IT infrastructure.”
