Our approach

Catalysed offers a modular set of services for schools to help them make effective use of digital technologies for teaching and learning. Broadly following the ADDIE model external link icon, a proven, rigorous technique that aims to build effective training and performance support, the objective is to create sustainable change that matches both a school's and individual teacher's needs. All five services are underpinned by educational research, and can be used separately or in combinations, depending on a school's needs.

The APT methodology

Catalysed's overall approach is driven by the APT methodology , where APT is shorthand for the Alignment of Pedagogy and Technology. This methodology was developed through extensive educational research in both secondary and higher education by the founder of Catalysed Ltd, Dr Richard Osborne. The APT methodology uses principles from ecological psychology to help teachers reflect on their current pedagogic practice, revealing the affordance of digital technologies in their individual contexts.

Timescales & costs

Timescales can range from just a few hours commitment from staff in after school workshops, to a comprehensive programme of linked events across an entire school year. Costs range from as little as £60 per hour for one-to-one support in the classroom to £3,000+ for more complex integrated projects.
