> The BYOD Solution to Meet Your Needs - Newborough & Stott Hoare partnership
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) in schools is growing across Australia and Stott Hoare understands that there is a lot to think about:
· What device is right for your students?
· Should you mandate specifications?
· What about set-up and support for things like anti-virus and Office applications?
· How will we connect to our applications and shared resources?
The Stott Hoare Education team have successfully helped a number of schools over the past 3 years to answer these questions and many others in designing the right scheme to meet their specific needs.
We offer guidance and support by working closely with the school to ensure that parents, teachers and students have the best experience when choosing the right device and support package to ensure that learning outcomes are achieved.
Following this process, we recently helped Newborough Primary School with the roll-out of their first BYOD programme this year.
Even with all the support that is on hand, choosing a BYOD approach isn’t an easy decision for the Senior Leadership team. Ultimately the decision made impacts the teaching and learning environment and Nick Stenhouse, Deputy Principal of Newborough Primary School, had his concerns around the implementation process when they embarked on their BYOD journey in 2016.
“As this is our very first attempt at trialling a BYOD programme we were quite nervous about how it was all going to go. But the set up process was fantastic and as the BYOD coordinator I didn’t have to worry about a thing, Stott Hoare took care of all of it. They did everything to make implementation easy and gave a great deal of information and support to parents. They even came and presented at our parent information evening.”
Our key focus is getting to know your school and what you want to achieve with BYOD. We personalize our services to meet your school’s requirements. We have a range of bespoke services that we can offer – pre-installed software such as anti-virus, imaging, customized support, competitive pricing, delivery options and, of course, choosing the right device.
Nick Stenhouse, Deputy Principal at Newborough had a special request:
“One of our goals was to be able to link to Churchlands SHS, as many of our students attend there after leaving Newborough. Stott Hoare put together a fantastic package which allows students to seamlessly transfer schools and keep the same device”- Nick explained –
“Jackie (the Stott Hoare Education consultant) and team were able to provide any information we requested and, given their knowledge and experience, we will continue to work with them to provide support for our students and parents. As far as I can tell, the parents that utilised Stott and Hoare are very pleased with the service they have provided.”
At Stott Hoare we pride ourselves on truly understanding your school’s needs and working with you to create the solution that best suits you.
