Dear teachers,

We totally appreciate the difficulties everyone is experiencing.  We know you will be doing a brilliant, yet exhausting job to keep everyone safe and secure.

We wanted to let you know that both our TeenTech City of Tomorrow and Innovation sessions work safely and well for pupils to access them from home. The projects genuinely offer a valuable learning experience whilst providing exciting access to inspiring mentors from industry.

We had tremendous success with this approach both during the first lockdown and during last term where whole year groups or individual students had to go home to isolate.

A flexible and highly praised offer

Students, teachers and parents really valued the content and delivery methodology of the sessions. Our platform is completely safe, and students and parents welcomed the quality of the live sessions and the feedback provided on students work. Over two thousand students accessed the sessions in this way.

How do students safely access the sessions from home? 

Teachers can register their classes/year groups using the form on our website. Once you have registered, we will then send the link for the requested session; you can then post the link to your secure online learning platform.  Pupils can watch the session on a mobile phone if they are without a computer /laptop.

Project work and feedback

Parents do not need to print off the worksheets – they can just use the templates as a guideline.

Children could either work in virtual teams to come up with ideas and then submit the projects for feedback, or work as individuals.  Pupils get really stuck in and we have been blown away by the ideas and commitment so far! Parents have enjoyed it too!

Pupils have enjoyed watching the feedback because they could still see the work of their peers and the approach was highly praised for providing much needed connectivity.
