Learning with Tablets

The ScoilCare Programme


Technology is playing an ever-increasing and critical role in education in Ireland and across the globe. Ipads, Chromebooks, laptops, PCs, and interactive boards have become the norm in integrative learning in the vast majority of schools throughout the country, and this trend is set to continue. In Ireland,  


Despite this progress, IT support has been largely ignored. For systems to continue to function effectively, they need to be routinely maintained and updated but there is no funding available for this essential work. Schools must find the necessary resources themselves.  The cost of most commercial IT maintenance contracts can be simply unaffordable for the vast majority of national and primary schools. A more effective school-focused solution is needed that reflects the financial challenges faced by Irish National and Primary Schools today. 

So...Welcome to ScoilCare! 

What Schools have Always Needed - ScoilCare now provides

ScoilCare can provide what schools have needed for a long time i.e. a structured IT support and maintenance programme that is

  1. Affordable: priced at rates that realistically reflect school budget constraints.

  2. Exceeding Expectations: I have been providing educational technology solutions and support to schools for over 35 years. Excellent references are available from my client schools. I guarantee an excellent service.

  3. Structured:  ScoilCare provides a structured IT maintenance service with routine maintenance schedules, systems monitoring, and updates.  Poorly maintained devices can fail unexpectedly. This leads to unexpected costs and makes IT budgets difficult to control. A well-structured IT maintenance program reduces these events, creates a high degree of certainty, and reduces those unwanted surprises!

  4. Unobtrusive:  95% of Maintenance events will take place in the background and outside of regular school hours.

  5. Simple & Easy to Interact with: ScoilCare is easy of use!
