About

embedIT is a midlands based company who work with schools throughout the country helping them embed the latest technology into the classroom to enthuse children, develop skills and raise standards.

In a rapidly changing world where the children often know more than the teachers we work with a range of specialist consultants, many of them Apple accredited trainers, to ensure that teachers develop their skills and are able to effectively embed IT in their lessons.

We have a skilled and experienced technical support team who will ensure that teachers can teach and not spend their valuable time trying to make the technology work.



“I have been involved in education and training for the past 25 years. I love working with teachers to help them get the best out of the technologies they have purchased.  The challenge and the reward is seeing people move on and become confident, enthusiastic users of technology.  The ultimate goal is for pupils to be engaged and motivated in their learning and achieve their potential.”

Chris Smith – Director of embediT Ltd

Vision & Planning – working with the ICT coordinator and SLT to review current practice, audit current provision and delivery of ICT within the school. Followed by enhancing the current schemes of work with a progression of activities to move the teaching of technology forward.

Introduction to iPad iOS – days training/workshop on the iPad. Ideal for schools who have or are just in the process of purchasing iPads. This would get all staff up to speed with how and iPad work and also ideas about how to integrate it into their classroom practice. 

Introduction to Mac OSX – days training/workshop on the Macbook. Ideal for schools who have or are just in the process of purchasing MacBooks. This would get all staff up to speed with how and MacBooks work and also ideas about how to integrate it into their classroom practice.

 Podcasting – working directly with the class teacher for the morning and another in the afternoon to make high quality podcasts using the iPad. Teachers will learn techniques and ways of linking podcasting to their day to day topics and schemes. (Mac or iPad)

 Movie Making – working with the class teacher to create films based around a current topic. The day will include: storyboarding, understanding film techniques, camera angles, use of iMovie, editing and creating a finished product. Some preparation will be required on behalf of the class to get the most out of this day. (iPad)

Creating iBooks – working alongside the class teacher in the morning and another class in the afternoon the session will use  wide range of Apps on the iPad to bring together a multi-media, content rich iBook that will e published in the iBooks library on the iPad and exported to be sent home or hosted on your school website/blog.

Music apps

 

I have worked with schools to develop their music curriculum at primary and also taught elements of the AS & A2 music technology at secondary.

Another element of the work I have carried out is creating an iPad Orchestra with a primary school as an after school club. I believes we were the first Primary iPad orchestra in the country!

Surbiton High School

Spending the week with teachers at Surbiton High School looking at greater integration of iPads in to the curriculum. The schools has confident teachers who have been using the iPad for a number of years but it is always good to ask a few questions and be introduced to a new idea or two. Looking at making more use of OneDrive for storage and developing QR codes to share stored information in a more engaging way.
