What did they need?
A set of iPad for their students, plus training for their staff and help along the way to becoming an Apple Regional Training Centre.
How did we help?
As well as getting them the iPad set they needed, we provided Apple Professional Development training for WOW Zone’s staff, and helped them set themselves up as an RTC.
What were the benefits?
They are far better positioned to give tech advice to local teachers, and by engaging more with other teachers, they’re able to find more ways to engage with their students. WOW Zone’s students now have access to the latest creative technology.
"Very often schools will be marketed different products, but we have found that Jigsaw24 are not just supplying our hardware, they’re providing a service, and supporting us. They’re very education-orientated, so it’s all about the methodology and the learning ethos – that’s part of the deal, so it helps us to enable teachers to learn how to use equipment effectively and develop their own systems."
