CYNNAL was established in 1996 by Cyngor Gwynedd and Ynys Môn County Council to provide educational support services for schools within the two authorities. By today, our main objective is to provide ICT support services – delivered by a team of SIMS support staff, web designers, ICT technicians and networking technicians – to schools within Anglesey, Gwynedd, Conwy and Denbighshire.
Over the past two decades, CYNNAL has worked alongside schools to implement key developments in the field of education technology, ranging from the introduction of the internet to schools in the mid 90’s, developing school infrastructures and wireless technology, introducing and supporting the use of interactive whiteboard technologies, to more recently providing solutions for BYOD and home access. Over the same period, SIMS has been supported to become an integral element of schools management information, and offers solutions to record pupil and staff data, school accounts management, attendance recording, assessment and pupil tracking, examination administration, reporting to parents etc. The Web Design team has been expanded to ensure the necessary skills and expertise to be able to create, design and publish interactive teaching materials, which includes Moodle courses, educational eBooks, apps and HTML5 resources.
