Check out Airhead!
For decades schools have poured money into expensive ICT solutions better suited to businesses, and often requiring proprietary hardware and software. Airhead Education is all about changing that, using applications and data storage in the cloud.
The Web is brimming with tools for learning, creating, organising, communicating and sharing. These tools offer far better value for money than their ‘old world’ equivalents, are much easier to deploy, and are available from any device, anywhere, anytime.
Airhead creates software that brings all of these tools and resources together.
Play well with others
The education world has seen enough monolithic software products that require users to work in a particular ways to achieve things that they can already do perfectly well using other tools. We believe that software fit for the 21st Century doesn’t do that, but should work with the tools that users are already using.
We believe in open standards
Simple is good. We believe that software that requires users to go on training courses or to read Help files is just plain bad software. We pride ourselves on building products that users can use immediately, and which are fun to use.
Phil Dawson is a director and founder of Airhead Education along with Ian Mathias-Baker and Jason Dixon.
