Report: Better Connected Schools
Are you using technology in school?
Beaming’s research into the impact of better connectivity on attainment in education turned up some interesting results.
Levels of uptake for high capacity fibre Ethernet connectivity are as high amongst schools with the worst Progress 8 scores, which measures progress from Primary to GCSE level, as for the very best.
