Today, the Department for Education has released its strategy for education providers and the technology industry in England.
The paper, “Realising the potential of technology in education” sets out the department’s vision for edtech in our schools: how to develop teachers’ digital capabilities and skills, support effective procurement, promote digital safety – and much more.
One of the objectives the DfE talks about in the paper is using edtech to help support teachers and reduce their workloads, whilst improving their efficiency in the classroom.
ReallySchool is exactly aligned with this aim, as its tablet-based user interface is intuitive and easy for teachers to use, plus, its ability to record pupils’ observations and assessments there and then in the classroom eliminates the requirement to take hand-written notes that need to be written up later.
Commenting on the release of the new paper, ReallySchool’s Product Manager, Kat Cauchi, said: “ReallySchool fits with the strategy the Department for Education sets out in its document perfectly, as it saves teachers valuable time and slashes their workload by enabling them to capture evidence, link assessments, share learning with parents and celebrate success on the go.”
