Customer Story: Garfield Prep Academy provides engaging, personalized education with powerful classroom tools

Picture the ideal learning environment. When Garfield Prep teacher Marlyne Graves pictures this, she sees each of her students tackling the same task while being uniquely challenged and supported. This is exactly the type of classroom she was able to create through the use of technology like OneNote Classroom Notebook. This offered efficiency and access to learning tools that opened doors for each of her students to maximize their engagement and learning. At Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we want to celebrate and support individuality, and this includes providing the resources to personalize learning.

Customer Story: New South Wales – Scaling STEM education in one of the world’s largest school jurisdictions

The STEM job market in Australia is both highly paid and highly stable, and yet experiencing a lower-than-average growth in qualified workers. Meanwhile, high school students are disengaged with material, including core subjects like math, for which they don't see any real-world applicability. The enormous school district of New South Wales is tackling both of these issues in a single solution--by bringing highly applicable STEM curriculums into their classrooms through technology. Students are deeply engaged with the material, and graduate with the skills needed in the future job market. Curious about what real-world material technology can bring to your classroom? Contact us to learn more.

Preparing the class of 2030

Social and emotional skills are far more predictive of a student's achievement than home environment or demographics. That's because employers are looking for people who are able to think on their feet and build strong relationships. Technology has the incredible potential to level the playing field and make these important skill developments accessible to all students, by giving teachers the ability to combine emotional and cognitive skills with academic learning. At Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we want to help your school use technology to arm all student with the skills they'll need in the workplace.

Customer Story: School gets future ready with Windows 10 devices, Office 365, and STEM curriculum

No one person can be an expert on everything, and this applies to teachers as well. When it comes to STEM areas where many are unfamiliar, technology can give them access to tools and other educators who can help them confidently expand their STEM curriculums. Similarly, students can't be expected to resonate with every subject taught. More STEM in the classroom offers exposure to a wider variety of subjects and activities, increasing the likelihood that students find a subject they're passionate about. At Bitnet Solutions Ltd, we want to help your teachers bring exciting new content into their classrooms.

TESTIMONIALS

Pulling all the pieces of information together has allowed us to successfully identify patterns of behaviour, for example difficulties on Monday and Friday morning, and take more immediate and effective action with pupils. Our new E-Dart system provides detailed evidence for external bodies such as Exclusion Panels, we never get questioned about our supporting data.
We loved working with Bitnets because we had access to a very knowledgeable, talented and experienced team but they were happy to work alongside our staff at the right pace for us and our school development.

Carol Mitchell, Strategic Director , Wells Park School, Chigwell, Essex

Bitnet Solutions personnel had done some work for us in the past which was quite successful. From that point onwards they were aware of our history & the impending need for us to change Servers/Operating platforms/ Systems as well as Email providers. During the length of our discussions it became clear we would have to migrate to Office 365, so Bitnet advised the Single Sign on facility and other key changes to the network management to improve productivity and mitigate outages. Being a school, our budget was very tight indeed so we had to take time to plan the best way forward & timing was crucial. Our first point of contact was Bitnet Solutions who helped us plan it in stages with work we could manage ourselves in preparation for the ‘Big Switchover’. Without Bitnets’ input, what they managed to complete in 4 days would have taken my team several weeks to complete. Bitnet were always very professional & easy to work with & invaluable in mapping out the schools needs for at least the next 5 years – which we didn’t have before. I’m certain we will be using Bitnet Solutions again.

In the last year and a half, as the ICT Network Manager at Chilwell Croft Academy, I have worked closely with Bitnet Solutions on quite a few occasions. On each of these key consultations and implementation stages, their understanding of our needs was extraordinary. Bitnet helped us implement our vision and ideas which complemented and fitted in with our ongoing projects and meant that the implementation was completed on time and without errors. With their expert knowledge and partnerships, Bitnet continue to provide us with invaluable advise on new and emerging technology in education so that we are able to make an informed choices, to benefit the school in the long run.
