Learning by Questions (LbQ), the new teaching and learning app that launched in October, has just been nominated for the greatest number of BETT Awards for a single product this year.
Shortlisted in four categories including Innovator of the Year for the second year running, LbQ has also been selected for Classroom Aids for Learning, Teaching and Assessment, Collaboration with a School Award and the Impact Award, the last two being new categories.
Masefield Primary School in Bolton nominated LbQ for the Impact Award. Three years ago, Masefield was under Local Authority review and was being absorbed into an academy chain.
Today they are in the top 4% of schools for maths progress in the UK, with 90% of children hitting the expected standard (against UK average of 61%).
“We use LbQ three times a week and it has reduced hours from my workload. But it’s the children who have all developed a resilience, confidence and love of learning who are LbQ’s biggest fans.” – Andy Done, Deputy Head of School and Year 6 teacher.
The team at LbQ are hoping that the pedagogy will find new fans at the world’s largest edtech show - BETT which will take place from 23rd to 26th January 2019 with over 800 leading developers and 34,000 attendees.
Winners selected by the 44 judges will be announced at the 21st BETT Award ceremony on 23rd January.
