Providing technology equality across schools

Getech and a one-to-one device strategy can help you unleash the power of technology to transform teaching and learning wherever it happens. In the classroom, across campus or at home.

As a Google for Education Premier Partner, Getech has seen first-hand the changing ways in which lessons are delivered and how technology has become an ever more important tool for students to engage in their learning journey, both at school and home.

What is 1:1 or one-to-one computing?

A 1:1 programme allows you to move technology out of the traditional ICT suite and directly into the hands of each learner so they’re empowered to achieve more.

A device per pupil is a real enabler for improved learning outcomes. It ignites creativity, encourages independent thinking and allows personalised learning experiences that support each individual student’s needs.

There are so many reasons to go 1:1.
Here are just a few.

With a dedicated education team to support you, and partnerships with trusted vendors such as Acer, Lenovo, HP, and Asus, we’re in a great place to help you realise your 1:1 computing vision.

Steps to 1:1 computing success

We believe that a successful 1:1 deployment is about so much more than just buying the devices. It’s what you do with them that counts. To be sure your 1:1 programme delivers the benefits you set out to achieve, consider all these important steps in your plan.

Step one is to create your EdTech plan. It doesn’t have to be huge and convoluted.

It just needs to be clear, actionable and help you easily articulate your vision, milestones and progress.

Share your plan and vision early to secure buy-in and support from key stakeholders.

Your SLT all need to commit to the digital transformation journey, whilst teachers need to believe in the benefits. Governors and students will want to understand impacts too. As will parents, especially if you’re considering a parental contribution approach to funding.

We will help decide on the right devices to include in
your programme that complements both existing systems and a school’s
wider technology strategy.

Your 1:1 investment will only deliver real return when it’s being used. So banish those devices from the trolley or cupboard and get them used in every lesson, across the whole curriculum.

To do that, your plan needs to consider how you’ll train teachers, foster confidence and shift to a more digitally inclusive approach. 

Create a forum to get feedback from all your stakeholders, then show how you’re addressing it to help keep them engaged and committed.

Every academic setting and its people are different, so it follows that every 1:1 deployment will be different too. Expect to get some teething issues and a few barriers to adoption in the early days, so build this into your plan.

Training services for 1:1 success

Embed 1:1 use in lessons to realise true return on your investment

Your investment in one-to-one devices will only deliver real return when the technology is being used. The more devices are used in every lesson across the whole curriculum, the more creative, explorative and personalised learning experiences can happen.

Build a tech-confident faculty & IT team in your school or college

Say goodbye to devices gathering dust in a cupboard because nobody knows how to use them. We’re here to support you over the lifetime of your 1:1 deployment and beyond. 

We’re proud to be a trusted partner for educators as they embrace the benefits of using technology to support teaching and learning. Our services will upskill teachers and supercharge their confidence, as we demonstrate just how accessible, enjoyable and essential technology is for effective curriculum delivery.
