The Albion Learn 1:1 Programme
The power to create and unleash potential in every learner.
Learn 1:1 delivers the personalised learning environment
with an iPad for every student.
Taking a school on a 1 to 1 programme presents a multidisciplinary challenge. Albion’s Learn 1:1 programme provides a flexible framework for schools looking to deliver mobile learning in the most comprehensive and cost effective way.
Learn 1:1 includes:
• Teacher Training
• Flexible Finance
• Support & Insurance
• Billing and Collection service
• Claims management portal
• Administration and event support
The Learn 1:1 programme has two vital ingredients, Communication and Training.
It is essential throughout the programme to engage with all stakeholders including staff, parents, students and governors. We provide access to a range of events and detailed communication material to assist in this process. We also provide the Learn 1:1 portal with information on products, costs, FAQs and signup forms.
Staff training is key to a successful Learn 1:1 programme. Apple Professional Development training is delivered by experienced educators for educators. Training is provided on site and ensures you learn how Apple products can best be used by teachers and students.
Learn 1:1 – The Journey
Albion’s Learn 1:1 programme is composed of 5 stages.
The development of a clear vision for the programme centred on educational goals is important. The vision will clarify the desired learning outcomes of integrating technology with pedagogy. Led by the school, Albion will assist in defining the timetable over which your vision can be achieved.
Working with your senior leadership team we will plan out the Learn 1:1 programme. The objective of this stage is to provide a fully costed and timetabled plan. The research we carry out at this stage includes conducting a detailed technical audit to assess the existing infrastructure and in conjunction with the school conducting a skills audit to assess training requirements. Case study information and visits to lighthouse institutions are also provided.
With the vision and plan completed the infrastructure needs to be set up so that the backbone to the project is in place. This is a critical step that cannot be skipped if iPad is to be fully supported. The critical infrastructure elements that need to be tested and deployed include sufficient Internet connectivity and Wi-Fi networking. Also essential are the tools to provide iPad integration into the network and the management software that enables iPad to be configured and controlled.
4. Phased iPad rollout
iPad rollout within the Learn 1:1 framework is done in three main phases: to teachers, classrooms and then pupils. The length of each phase can vary considerably depending on the institution’s requirements and objectives.
During the teacher rollout the Learn 1:1 programme provides staff training workshops to support teachers in managing and exploring the ways these devices can enhance learning.
Next classroom rollouts can be carried out. Here different Apps and educational content are piloted and explored in an interactive classroom setting. Before the main rollout to pupils can begin parental engagement and support needs to be assured. We will help you deliver events as well as increasing awareness with the Learn 1:1 parent portal.
On the day of the main rollout our Mobile Device Management portal makes this a breeze. Full iPad deployment to pupils can be done on a zero-touch basis enabling standard software configuration and security settings to be implemented automatically.
5. Measurement & Sustainability
As with all aspects of education it is important to establish the learning outcomes achieved. Progress towards the goals set out in the vision stage should be monitored and reported on. Demonstration of the improvements in student achievement, behaviour and parental engagement will help ensure the sustainability of the programme.
The finance and funding sources used in Learn 1:1 guarantee that the programme is sustainable on an ongoing basis so that new technology and new year groups can be incorporated into the scheme.
