Transforming Classrooms with Engaging Audio-Visual Technology

Penistone Grammar School is a highly successful secondary school catering for over 1600 students on the edge of the Peak District in South Yorkshire. Computeam has worked with the school on IT development since 2015, providing support and strategic planning services as well as network upgrades. In 2019 we delivered our largest single AV project to date with the upgrade of over 80 classrooms with state of the art interactive panels.

The Challenge: Deliver an educational Return on Investment.

Over the past 20 years, UK schools have invested millions in high tech replacements for traditional chalk and dry-erase boards. Interactive whiteboards and projectors have recently been upgraded with giant touchscreens, but given the high purchase cost it can sometimes be unclear whether these devices have delivered an educational return on investment.

At Computeam, our mission statement is to improve educational outcomes using technology and with a school the size of Penistone Grammar School making a large investment like this, we were determined to make the technology work as hard as possible to deliver a tangible return for them.
