Succeeding in the new era of education
The landscape of education has changed. While digital elements have been part of the classroom experience for over a decade, it wasn’t until 2020 that remote learning made the leap from concept to practice and took its permanent place among the many innovative ways education is delivered today.
The pivot wasn’t easy, but this dramatic shift has only raised the bar for education and brought amazing opportunities that wouldn’t have been possible two years ago. Students can now connect with the class when they are physically unable to attend or receive personalized instruction based on their interests – these are just a couple of ways education has been redefined.
Learning has become more inclusive, more engaging, and more receptive to the needs of students and teachers. The possibilities tell the exciting new story of education, and it’s an absolute thrill to be in the middle of it as it unfolds.
Support for everyone in education
School leadership, teachers, IT administrators and parents all play a crucial role in encouraging students to perform to their fullest potential. Compugen works with all stakeholders towards building 21st-century learning environments that enable student achievement.
Compugen’s national education team has worked with close to 100 school boards and over 5,000 schools across the country, lending us the expertise in navigating the inner workings of what makes learning successful.
Leadership: Achieving higher learning outcomes
The first step towards building an effective, digitally connected learning model that supports students in the classroom and at home is to identify your needs. Do you face a challenge keeping the class connected no matter where your students are? Or is your priority differentiating learning experiences for your students?
There is no one-size-fits-all approach. Based on your goals, there’s a tailored solution for every challenge. Our team can guide your school leadership on finding the right solution to enable student achievement while keeping affordability in mind. This includes designing the environment with the right technology, building it around the physical space, and equipping your teachers with the right skills to take students closer to their goals. We work with Apple to deliver products that enrich students’ lives and give them new ways to experience and demonstrate their learning – no matter what type of learners they are.
Furthermore, Compugen’s Green4Good and Future Value programs can make the decision even easier as we find ways to lower initial costs and create value for your outgoing IT assets. Reach out to discover how we can help you acquire, deploy, and manage Apple technology in your schools.
IT: Simplified deployment, seamless adoption
Part of any school’s modernization process is deploying technology in learning spaces and individual devices to educators and students. Deployment is a big undertaking; having an IT partner who can help beyond just procurement is vital for success. Compugen provides a variety of services that can assist your school with implementing education technology and configuring and distributing devices to teachers and students. Once that’s done, the focus shifts towards making sure the technology runs smoothly through ongoing device management.
Apple has developed powerful tools specifically for use in schools to support administrators with their deployments and teachers with their classroom workflows, as well as to enable a personalized learning experience for every student. Apple supports IT in the deployment process so every aspect of a school’s experience with Apple products can be as simple and intuitive as the products themselves.
Compugen has over 40 years of experience in all aspects of educational technology and is the only Authorized Apple Education Specialist in Quebec. To learn more about how we can help you with design, implementation and deployment in your school, please get in touch.
Teachers: Inspired instruction for the digital classroom
Once the technology is in place, Compugen can support teachers through professional development that builds fluency and efficacy with Apple devices, regardless of their level of technical expertise. We understand the importance of technology being utilized effectively for innovative instruction and have dedicated a bilingual Apple Professional Learning Specialist (APLS) for school boards in Quebec.
This learning specialist has conducted hundreds of inspiring hands-on workshops with educators to help them incorporate Mac and iPad into their teaching practice. By equipping teachers with the foundational skills to utilize Apple technology and tools, Compugen empowers teachers to reach more students, increase engagement and unlock their creativity.
