Congratulations to the winning school – ‘Think of an App’ competition.

Published: July 24, 2014

Back in June we launched a new and exciting competition asking teachers and pupils to design a new app for our best selling School Jotter suite.  After all these are the people that use School Jotter and are possibly best placed to guide us on future apps.
The entries were varied and showed a great deal of creativity, we were very pleased with the response. It was a tough job but the decision was unanimous!
We are very pleased to announce that the winner was a pupil from Scargill Junior School in Rainham, Essex. The school will receive the full suite of School Jotter apps, worth £7,000. These include Jotter Learn, Resources, School Merits, Blog, Survey, Forum, Portfolio  and Messages. We hope that the pupils and staff enjoy their prize.
Here is the winning idea and we are sure you will agree that the app icon is eye catching and the description is thoughtfully written.

More information can be found about the School Jotter suite of apps here. Please remember we are always open to suggestions and ideas from schools, so please let us know, prize not included!

Competition: We Want Your App Ideas!

Category: Company News

Published: June 24, 2014

Since February, Webanywhere has been releasing new education apps every few weeks. So far, apps we’ve launched have included a blogging tool, a school surveys builder, a learning sites tool and an online rewards and behaviour management system.
Now, we’re looking for the next big idea – and this where we need the help of the people who use our apps day in, day out – teachers and pupils.
The development of all our apps has been based on comments, suggestions and feedback from teachers – so we’re launching a competition, Think Of An app, where we’re asking for you to give us your ideas for new apps we can develop.
The best app idea will be rewarded with a full suite of apps, worth £7K. Three runners up will win School Merits and Bloganywhere for their school.

You can register your school and get your Think Of An App Competition information pack here. The closing date is Friday, 18th July, 2014.
If you have any questions, just email competitions@webanywhere.co.uk.
Our last major competition, Create Your Character, saw primary schools across the UK designing new avatars for our primary VLE. Winners were awarded with a subscription to Learnanywhere, and many, like pupils at St Thomas Aquinas School, Stoke appeared in local papers.
Good luck!

And The Winners Are… | Webanywhere Blog

Back in June 2013 Webanywhere launched two competitions: One was to win an e-learning package, including Learnanywhere and Learner Journey, worth over £4000. The other was to win School Jotter 2 upgrade, our school website package, valued at almost £2000.

All schools had to do was fill in a short survey that asked which e-learning products they currently use, if any. A school was then picked at random as a winner for each competition.

The lucky winner of the School Jotter 2 upgrade was St Andrew’s Junior School, Colchester, who will now benefit from a more attractive website design and features like an app for parents – allowing them to access the latest school news via smartphones and tablet computers.

South Elmsall Carlton Junior & Infant School, Wakefield, was the other lucky winner, who won the e-learning package. This will allow teachers to upload work, set self-marking tests and take online registers. In addition it will also provide children with access to their homework, allow them to take tests and also play educational games.

If you want to be our next competition winner, make sure that you keep your eyes peeled when schools return in September!
