Interactive Opportunities Ltd (iO) was founded by Andrew Goff to bring together teachers and innovative technology to address real needs, develop new learning opportunities and to help ultimately increase student outcomes. IO predominantly works in the education and training verticals but its expertise and technologies are increasingly being applied to other sectors such as law enforcement and sports coaching.
IO has helped to develop many firsts; the majority successful but others leading to dead-ends, all a part of learning from mistakes, evaluating, improving and progressing pedagogy.
IO has advised many schools and educational institutions in very varied areas; from the whole of school ICT vision and strategy down to shorter term project based initiatives. Many people are easily drawn into the application of technology for ‘shiny technologies’ sake; that is not what we do, we look for the true positive outcomes that technology can provide when applied objectively. What is the return on investment for the student being at the core of all that we do being the primary focus.
Whilst we try to stay focussed on teaching and learning, technology and ICT can't be isolated from the whole of school activities and as such we are regularly asked to advise on IT infrastructure development, administration systems and learning experience. If we do not directly have experience in areas then it is most likely that we can introduce people to cleints who do have the relevant knowledge and who are happy to share their experiences.
We are proud of the initiatives that we have been involved in, our industrial relationships and will continue to strive to push boundaries for positive student outcomes.
If you have a need in your school that you can’t find a solution to, or have developed something that you think that other schools would benefit from then please get in touch and we’d be delighted to talk over opportunities.
