Here at YPO, we are aware of the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak is having on schools already and the potential for more closures to happen. In preparation for this, we want to share resources and support our two partners EdTech Impact and Twinkl are offering to help you plan for home learning.
How we can help….
Our friends at Edtech Impact have been working hard with their suppliers to offer you a list of all home and remote learning tools and promotions on the EdTech Impact platform.
The team have secured a number of EdTech providers offering schools 'free' home access to their products.
Over 1,000 curriculum and whole school solutions are available for you to compare (including 120 School closure promotions), each categorised by:
- Product type
- Age group
- Educational impact (across different school contexts)
- Downloadable offline
- Downloadable to mobile
- Requires parental supervision
- Tutorial available for parents
Ensuring that you choose the right resources for your School is crucial, so they have curated a definitive list of home learning solutions and promotions on EdTech Impact - updated every hour.
