KeyPupil keeps hospital schools on the edge of technology
August 11, 2011 in Accessories
[prMac.com] Administration in hospitals often gets in the way of teachers doing what they do best, but KeyPupil for Hospitals has solved this issue for several hospital schools throughout the UK.
Linear Blue, a database and web development company based in Hurst and London developed KeyPupil for Hospitals in conjunction with the Children's Hospital School at Great Ormond Street. The idea was to create an efficient technology solution to seamlessly integrate and manage the hospital school's data that would save time, resources and overall costs.
John Sosna, Assistant Head Teacher for ICT and eLearning at the Great Ormond Street Hospital School said: "The Hospital School's long standing relationship with Linear Blue has meant that we have been able to work together to design and develop a highly bespoke database system that meets the specific needs of a busy school within a hospital environment.
The impact of the database on teaching and learning and the monitoring of pupil progress was recognised in the School's recent Ofsted inspection - (www.ofsted.gov.uk/oxedu_reports/display/(id)/106980) and in a report from the Department of Education - (www.education.gov.uk/schools/toolsandinitiatives/nationalstrategies).
The software is primarily designed to track student development, attendance and integrate with Local Education Authority protocols. Making life easier and stress free for teachers enables them to focus 100 percent on their jobs.
Jude Chalk, Head Teacher at the Royal Free Hospital Children's School said: " We have already seen improvements in the efficiency of the administration and organisation of the school. In particular, inputting data into the system is dramatically quicker in comparison to the amount of time it used to take. "
KeyPupil for Hospitals is now available on Apple's iOS devices - iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. The iPad, with its long battery life, light weight and ease of use make it the perfect administrative tool for teachers. By freeing teachers from performing administrative tasks at their desks, more time is spent with students. From entering student review information and printing reports straight from the iPad, the entire process runs like clockwork.
