Free remote learning support for teachers
All we can say is WOW! Teachers across the globe are doing an amazing job. But we understand that you still need help.
Our education team have been developing new learning resources supporting remote and independent learning. Our [email protected] suite of activities and self-directed lessons aims to help reduce your workload.
These lessons are designed to give you the flexibility to adapt to the format your school is running with – because every school is different.
Our [email protected] lessons are focused on real-world topics that are easy for parents and caregivers to understand, making the transition less scary and easier to bring into the home.
Based on teacher feedback we are focusing on two formats:
How are [email protected] activities designed?
Our activities are written to students and allow you to download self contained worksheets, and then edit and load directly into your own learning system. If you prefer, you can direct parents to our website and they can sign up to access [email protected] resources directly.
Self-Directed Lessons, supporting independent learning. How do they work?
Supporting learning for upper primary and secondary students is really critical.
Our new Self-Directed [email protected] lessons encourage students to work independently, whilst also allowing you to continue student & teacher collaboration if you are able to provide a class collaboration environment.
These lessons give you flexibility to deliver lessons that work in your current teaching environment.
You can search for our self-direct lessons using the [email protected] Self Directed topic in our curriculum page.
Parents and support
We realise that supporting parents is a big part of this.
We now have a parent sign up, and [email protected] pages designed for parents.
Our activities include tips for parents and easy to understand instructions – you might notice we have reduced the ‘education speak’ to make sure parents feel welcome.
Teachers can provide our website to parents either for extended or standard classroom support.
Available Now: new and integrated curriculum ideas
Looking for ideas? We have put together some of our existing resources alongside our new [email protected] lessons to give you some ideas on what is possible. Good luck – we know how hard you are working!
