Our mission is
to help enrich education with effective technology
North27 is an Independent Education Technology (EdTech) Consultancy. We help schools and trusts "go digital".
The company "North27 Limited" was formed in 2013 by Andrew Howden, a Technical Consultant and Education Technologist with 15+ years experience. Passionate about education and inspired by the impact technology can have on learning and teaching, North27 sets out to maximise that impact in a fair and altruistic way.
We live and breathe the Education Technology (EdTech) world and are passionate about what we do.
Using our unique framework we can evaluate the current efficiency and effectiveness of IT and how it supports your educators, learners and administrators.
That may involve an in depth technical audit, staff & student inteviews and a visioning exercise, but if you already have some of the infomation the process can be sped up.
Once we have an understanding of where you are and where you want to be, we will produce an action oriented, prioritised plan to get you there, within your timescale and budget.
Our aim is to do whatever is required to get you to that point, but not to be the primary service delivery provider or reseller. We would however help source and manage the most suitable options. That said, we would fill any gaps (technical or otherwise) to ensure the work was completed, and would be on hand throughout to support.
Having reached a successful conclusion there is usually a pivitol moment where confidence in IT grows, and our services switch from hands-on to hands-off.
At that point our aim is to remain involved at a stategic level, as a critical friend; to advise on technological changes and legislation, provide technical assurance, share lessons learnt, support with staff/team development, contract management, and help keep up the momentum; in computing terms be a "watchdog".
If you think we may be able to support you with your challenge, please contact us. Following an initial conversation we can provide an indicative quote and from there perhaps arrange a meeting onsite to help futher understand your needs.
