As a Microsoft Gold Education Partner, Medhurst delivers cost effective IT solutions and services to meet the individual needs of over 500 Schools.
We know this is a busy and challenging time as you adapt to delivering a positive learning environment remotely for your school. We want to help ease that transition and support you in that change. We’re working with the Department for Education (DfE) and Microsoft to help schools have a digital education platform that supports remote learning, using Office 365 Education including Microsoft Teams.
These digital education platforms can support you with:
- Teachers’ ability to assign and assess work, providing feedback remotely.
- Students’ ability to access curriculum content and communicate digitally on any device that is connected to the internet, irrespective of location.
In addition, when effectively implemented, these platforms enable:
- Communication between staff, students, and parents in real time, using written word, voice, and video.
- The option to collaborate in real time on documents to enable teachers and other students to give support and feedback of work on collaborative projects.
Free support to get you up and running on a digital learning platform
If you are looking to enable a digital platform, you can benefit from this programme. All you need to do is to submit a Request for Platform Provisioning form, and you will receive government funded support to get you up and running.
Select Medhurst Communications Ltd as Preferred Partner on Question 26 and we will be in touch within the next two business days. Microsoft and the DfE have done all the hard work so you don’t have to. They have ensured all the settings and security are there to give you the best cloud platform experience in the most practical time possible.
