Our Competition Gets e-Learning In The Papers!

So, by now you may’ve seen our winning avatars from the Create Your Character Competition (if not, you can view them here). We’ve had some wonderful responses from the winning schools – and we have begun to present the prizes to our top ten. The competition is even getting into local papers!

Our in-house artist, Jonny, has been busy recreating the five winning avatars for Learnanywhere, one of which you can see below.

Jonny has tried to stay very faithful to the originals – and we think he’s done a fantastic job!

Some of our winning schools are also going to be hosting events with Webanywhere. There will be one event at each of these schools,  covering things like Ofsted requirements for school websites, and getting more from a learning platform.
The first event we can announce at a winning school is on Friday, 22nd November at Christ Church CE Primary School, Leigh, Wigan. After we visited their school this week (see winning pupil Maciek, in the picture above, holding up his avatar for the local Wigan paper) they have agreed to host Nurturing Online Learning: Wigan. The event will be split into two sessions, covering e-safety in the classroom, and Ofsted requirements for school websites. You can find all the details here.
If you would like more information about our events, or you would like to be a host for a Webanywhere event, please get in touch here.

Create Your Character Competition – Two Days To Go!

Category: Company News

Published: October 2, 2013

We’re now into the final few days of the Create Your Character Competition – so if you’ve registered to take part, now’s the time to start submitting your entries!

Many schools have already submitted their avatar designs for Webanywhere’s latest primary pupil competition – and as the picture from Parkwood Primary School, Keighley shows (above), the creativity knows no bounds!

A lot of the children have been using the avatar templates supplied in the teacher’s pack and adorning them with cool clothes, fetching hats or useful implements – whilst others have created their character from scratch. Below is an example of the latter, from Pennine Way Junior Academy, Derbyshire. This cool-looking fellow has apparently been named Rock QX, and doubles as a superhero!

To get involved with the competition, and to find out the latest competition news, you can now use the Twitter hashtag #createyourcharacter. If you want to register and stand a chance of winning thousands of pounds’ worth of e-learning prizes for your school, plus get your avatars used in Learnanywhere, click here. The closing date is this Friday at 4pm.
