Gap Evaluation

Gap Evaluation

A gap analysis is process that compares actual performance or results with what was expected or desired. The method provides a way to identify suboptimal or missing strategies, structures, capabilities, processes, practices, technologies or skills, and then recommends steps that will help the company meet its goals.
Under the Gap evaluation the hardware, software and teaching skill details are analysed by Creative professionals and a Gap report is prepared. The Gap report contains all necessary information which would allow the institution plan the necessary budget and team to fund the project.

Approach to Planning and Deployment

Approach to P&D

Based on leadership consultation with school, teacher feedback and school vision, one of the modes of deployment model is selected.

 

  • One-One deployment
  • One-Many deployment
  • Shared iPad

Shared iPad

Shared iPad

Shared iPad enables schools to share devices among students, while still providing a personalised experience.* Before class begins, teachers can assign any student any shared iPad. Students know which devices to use because their pictures are on the Lock screens, and they can access their personal content using a password or easy-to-remember four-digit PIN. Because a local copy of their data is stored on this device, after students log in, their homework, apps and assignments are exactly as they left them. So teachers and technology managers won’t lose time backing up or wiping data between classes.

iPad Cart

A cart of (30-50) iPads will be purchased by the school.

Learning Environment

Innovative schools use technology to support learning experiences that are active, personal, collaborative, and relevant. These experiences are designed to empower learners to be creators who believe their work matters.

Teaching Environment

Innovative schools use technology to inspire a growth mindset in teachers and support their work as learning experience designers.
