Whereas a decade ago students were usually introduced to ICT as a subject in KS3 or even KS4, there is now a need, with the world of work demanding an ever increasing level of ICT skills from employees, for ICT to be introduced from an earlier age.
This, coupled with the fact that there is a proliferation of cheap home computing, making ICT more accessible to children at home, means children in primary school have an unprecedented level of ICT skills.
Young students today will be using various types of technology to learn and explore the physical and digital world around them outside of the classroom, with children as young as two now used to using mobile devices, and primary schools need to ensure that their ICT provision can develop pupils further.
Primary schools need to ensure that they have the necessary ICT solution in place; end user devices coupled with the necessary infrastructure, so that pupils are able to fully interact with ICT from an early age.
It is increasing important that young children are exposed to ICT early in their educational development as, with the world of work ever changing, primary schools have to prepare children for job roles that don’t even exist yet. Gaia Technologies has a long and successful history of working with Primary Schools and we understand the challenge primary schools face.
We offer a wide variety of ICT solutions designed to meet a school’s needs. We work closely with both schools and educators around the country to develop new, innovative and exciting ways of introducing ICT to Primary schools.
From the simple provision of end user devices and a secure, reliable wireless infrastructure, to integrated solutions, the implementation of the anywhere/ anytime learning concept and home access, we are constantly striving to find new and innovative ways to use technology to help improve education outcomes.
Used correctly, technology can be a powerful tool for primary schools. But innovation must be focussed on supporting learning and teaching. Our experience in providing ICT for schools and our passion for helping students learn makes Gaia a flexible and reliable partner for all learning environments.
