WHAT DO WE DO AT LEARNMAKER?
We use technology to save schools time, money and ultimately improve student outcomes.
We achieve this by implementing Google Suite for Education into your school, a technology platform that has huge potential in the classroom, but even greater potential in improving how your school operates.
We deliver this through long term development programmes into schools. These last between 3 - 12 months, because 3 months is the minimum amount of time needed to make the improvements and changes we bring stick.
We focus on the behind the scenes use of technology, because while the classroom technology like tablets, computers and everything else might be exciting and sexy, when it comes to school development, it's just a surface distraction for what needs to happen.
By focusing technology behind the scenes and improving the operation of your school, we ultimately give you the best opportunity to improve student outcomes. With more time and energy day to day, your staff can better focus on student outcomes, and by saving your school money, we create more opportunities for you to invest in better learning opportunities. This is how technology truly transforms a school.
THE LEARNMAKER METHOD
Technology in your school is nothing more than a vehicle to help your progress. Used well and technology will become a fast, agile sportscar of a vehicle, that will enable you to reach your full potential with minimal effort. Used poorly and technology will become a laborious, inefficient vehicle like a bicycle, requiring constant work and continuous effort keeping your from reaching your full potential.
To ensure that technology is used well in your school, our founder, Jay Ashcroft, developed the LearnMaker Method, that ensures the focus remains on the three key principles that underpin successful use of technology.

Reboot: Why We Must Rethink the Use of Technology to Truly Revolutionise Our Schools
£1 billion has been spent on technology by UK schools in the past 5 years, yet there has been no measurable impact on student progress. In the same timeframe, staff numbers have risen and teachers work longer hours, all just to maintain the status quo.
The explosion of paperwork has overwhelmed schools, and lacking the right technologies, teachers have been left to face the full force of it. Overworked and under-supported, teachers aren’t able to excel and neither are students.
