Education

Creating the classrooms of the future

When introducing collaboration technology into an education setting, we rewrite the playbook. Particularly when the technology is used for teaching and learning, the approach that works in a corporate environment no longer applies.

Helping teachers, learners, and professional staff thrive in a remote education environment requires advanced understanding of the people, the use case, and the technology. Protecting young learners with additional security and privacy is a priority, as is the ability to foster active learning. The traditional ‘video meeting’ must be transformed into an interactive, engaging classroom that the teacher can easily control. The technology must feel seamless to allow the learning to take centre stage.

Taleka has a well-established track record of successful technology adoption projects with primary, secondary, and tertiary education institutions around the globe, as well as governing education bodies. Our projects have ranged from rapid enablement programs to get a school or university up and running with collaboration technology in 12 weeks, to five-year transformation programs that thoroughly embed the technology across a network of schools for teachers, students, and professional staff alike. Our team also includes former primary and high school teachers and academics, whose experience gives us unique insight into our education customers’ needs.
