Teaching With Technology Skills Audit

The competence and confidence of teachers in using technology is one of the biggest factors influencing its effective use to enhance teaching and learning. The Tablet Academy offers digital skills audit services in order to provide schools with a snapshot of their teachers' current skills. The report of such an audit can assist with the planning of a training programme that is both relevant and meaningful. We offer three distinct packages:

Free Skills Audit

This free online survey provides you with an oversight of your teaching staffs' current teaching with technology skills. It provides access to a graphical summary of the results, then if the school decides it is important you can upgrade to the Basic Skills Audit and instantly receive all the detailed results for each individual member of staff, plus a bespoke report created by our consultants.

Basic Skills Audit £800 +Vat

Teachers complete an online survey ranking their skill levels across a range of applications and digital tools. The survey has been designed to assess a range of skills and provides a basic benchmark by which to compare competencies. A report summarising the survey results is provided as part of the package outlining the strengths and weaknesses of staff skills.

Detailed Skills Audit £2400 +Vat

In addition to the online survey described in the basic audit, this package also includes a day’s visit by a consultant to meet and interview staff. A detailed professional development and planning report is provided which includes an analysis of each key skill area, a review of the school's digital strategy, a summary of staff reactions, opportunities and concerns.

Measuring Success:

Tablet Academy Research

Measuring success is not about ticking boxes, it’s about how to identify which elements worked best, and which ones need improvement. An effective evaluation of staff and student experience can be used to create reports to communicate your success to parents and governors or share your ideas with colleagues inside and outside your school. Our Research Programmes are delivered by Dr. Mark Childs, an educator and well published researcher who has evaluated school and university education both nationally and internationally. Our Measuring Success packages come in three different forms.
  • Basic Package (£600 +Vat) - One-day workshop introducing all the basic principles of conducting education research enabling the school to conduct it's own research.
  • Medium Package (£2000 +Vat) - The medium package therefore includes both the one day workshop as described above, and two days of online interaction with the project leader in order to develop and consolidate your study.
  • Full Package (£3000 +Vat) - This package outsources the evaluation of the learning programme at your institution to the Tablet Academy. Our evaluator will work with your organisation to develop and undertake the research programme summarised in a written report.
