Learnocracy Ltd was formed in 2011 by Phil Dawson, an educational technologist with over 20 years’ experience. The company delivers strategic support for educational organisations that want to systematically optimise their investment in technology and deliver demonstrable educational impact.

The support that Learnocracy offers broadly covers the following areas:
- Advice and support in optimising technology for teaching, learning and administration
- Co-development of vision, strategy and plans for delivery of new technology solutions
- Development of technology solutions for new schools
- Delivery and management of change programmes, including training
- Management of technology procurements including bid writing and management
“Phil Dawson has been a key part of the team developing the new school provision. He combines a great knowledge of current ICT usage in schools with a clear and relevant perspective on how ICT is developing. Together we have developed a robust, forward looking, agile plan. We opened the Academy in 2013 but we will not be in a permanent building until 2018. We have worked together with Phil to continually refine our ICT implementation to keep it relevant in a rapidly changing market. Phil has been responsive to the evolving needs of the Academy and nothing has been too much trouble. We look forward to a continued partnership with Phil, providing the best ICT solutions for our students.” Richard Bence, Chair of Governors and ICT Lead, Route 39 Academy Trust
Phil Dawson is also a co-founder and director of Airhead Education Ltd, a successful business providing a ‘cloud desktop’ to schools, colleges and universities. Known as Airhead, the platform won the ‘Innovation in ICT’ Bett award in 2015.

“It’s clear that the future of technology is mobile, wireless and ubiquitous. As educators, our responsibility is to prepare young people to thrive in the world that is coming, not the world of yesterday or even today. While the current generation may be digital natives, they are not necessarily digital experts. It’s the responsibility of educational organisations to prepare young people for their future, both by teaching digital literacy and by employing digital competencies to support learning and teaching across the curriculum.” Phil Dawson, Education Technologist, Learnocracy Ltd
