Primary Technology Ltd

bMoble 2013

This year we attended the bMoble conference, and were lucky enough to witness some very interesting Keynote Speeches, The first, by Mark Reynolds showed delegates the benefits of a gradual move into the cloud, using Microsoft Office 365, which provides individual online storage for pupils and staff, as well as collaborative online storage space. With the exciting announcement of the discounted Surface tablet offer, this looks to be a great way of providing secure online storage for schools. As a company Primary Technology can help you set this up and start to get the ball rolling for using more and more web 2.0 apps.

The second keynote was about rolling out iPads for individual pupils, and although not directly relevant for most primary schools, a lot of the ideas of the could be replicated towards class sets of any mobile devices, showing schools how to get the best out of devices, and avoid having them stored in cupboards or charging trolleys for the majority of the day! Collaborative learning could be achieved with use of both of these ideas together, with students creating their own animations and videos relating to the topics that they are currently working on, either as a whole class, or in smaller breakout groups supervised by a teaching assistant.

One key point that was re-iterated by all of the speakers was the need for a good reliable internet connection, and a solid network backbone to facilitate the mobile learning, and avoid the frustration of devices not working, or taking too long to load up, resulting in pupil disinterest. It was also interesting to attend the breakout session focusing on making sure that your technical team are working alongside the whole school to implement the new visions and ideas that your school may have. This may be a good opportunity to remind you that Primary Technology will come into your school to help you do a 3 year strategic plan for you, providing you with an estimation on costs for the next 3 years, but also if you have a whole school focus that you will be using technology for, please feel free to contact us, and we will come in and chat with you to make sure that all bases are covered, and help avoid any hidden costs that might sneak up on you!

It was great to see so many friendly faces there, and if you have come back from the conference bursting
with ideas please speak to your engineer to see how best we can help you implicate them across your school.
