Our learners are now equipped with a deeper skill set and are very efficient. Martin always returns emails or phone calls within a day. The staff have instantly become more comfortable in using technology at school and in sharing their knowledge with students and parents.

Martin’s empowering and collaborative approach to all staff enables him to relate to everyone and leaves them feeling empowered. Martin made technology a “safe” place for staff and alleviated the anxiety and frustration around not understanding how to use technology.
We are much more confident with technology and we now have smiles on our faces  – we are saving time and focusing on our core business!

Martin taught teachers how best to use their tools, so that they were effective for teaching and learning in the classroom.

Martin is continuously making links for all staff. He has a great sense of humour which has shown us exactly how we have been behaving with technology and how the new training will be beneficial for us as teachers and also for our classroom programmes.

Every session has been tailored to our school with an endpoint in mind. After each session I have had the opportunity to evaluate how the day went and also where to next. He also sets an expectation of where staff will be by the next session so we can continue to keep moving forward.
