RUNNER UP – Technology & Innovation Awards

LearnPad has been awarded ‘RUNNER UP’, for the Technological Innovation of the Year category in Teach Secondary’s Technology & Innovation Awards.

In association with LEGO® Education, the launch of Teach Secondary Magazine’s very first Technology and Innovation Awards recognise those individuals and companies whose work is helping to ensure the progress of genuinely transformative education for the future in classrooms across the country.

LearnPad are pleased to be a RUNNER UP of these awards which highlight the increasingly central role that technology plays in teaching and learning and celebrate outstanding and innovative practice.
The final judging decisions were made by a high profile panel of education experts, including Vic Goddard (featured on Channel 4’s Educating Essex); Fiona Millar (Guardian journalist and co-founder of the Local Schools Network); Lydia Beaton (global head of the James Dyson Foundation); Gareth Boldsworth (European Sales and Marketing manager for LEGO® Education) and Ollie Bray (Naace).

The judges rewarded LearnPad as a product, service or resource that has made a genuinely unique and significant contribution to improving standards of teaching and learning at Key Stages 3 and 4 during the UK 2013/14 academic year.

New ClassConnect Portal Changes

Here at LearnPad HQ we’re taking the summer break to make some minor updates to the ClassConnect portal, and over the coming few weeks you will see some more changes making the management of your LearnPads even easier. We are also launching our new website at www.learnpad.com to keep you up to date with all our latest products and exciting new developments. You will be able to login to the ClassConnect portal through the website login function or directly from connect.learnpad.com.

Below is a list of immediate changes and we will keep you up-to-date through the summer with further updates and amendments:

New Login URL – You can choose to login to ClassConnect via the www.learnpad.com website or directly using connect.learnpad.com. This URL replaces learnpad.co but don’t worry, if you forget learnpad.co will redirect you.

The “Store” tab is now called “Content” – The content tab will contain the same great apps, categories and lessons and can be accessed the same way as before, it’s simply been renamed

Easier ‘Help’ – You will see a new ‘Help’ link in the menu bar and whenever you need some assistance with any part of ClassConnect, just click the ‘Help’ link. This will take you directly to our new support site and will link you straight to articles that are relevant to where you were on ClassConnect. So if you are building a lesson and adding resources, the help button will take you to articles associated with creating and adding resources. Simple!

We hope you find our improvements useful. If you have any questions our support team is just a call or email away.
