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!

Learnanywhere Conference | Webanywhere Blog

Published: February 24, 2011

Now that Learnanywhere is up and running in a lot of Primary Schools we felt that it would be a good time to offer some hands on training for users to show them how to get the most out of the platform. To facilitate this we’ve organised our first Learnanywhere conference which will be at the Mint Hotel, Leeds, on Friday 8th April.

Delegates at this conference will be given some practical guidance on making use of Learnanywhere’s features, get an opportunity to see how content from a range of providers, including Espresso, I am Learning and the Global Grid for Learning can be incorporated into Learnanywhere to produce engaging and varied multimedia driven lessons. The latest features of Learnanywhere will also be demonstrated for the first time, allowing delegates to see how easily SIMS can be integrated into their Learnanywhere website and working through the ways in which this can help to streamline administrative and reporting tasks in school.

The Conference also features the highly acclaimed speaker James Knight of IMA Strategies who will be talking about different communication types and the way they interact online, along with Resource exhibitions, networking opportunities and a chance to share ideas about any aspect of teaching, learning or ICT use in schools.
