Content and Tools
A wealth of free tools, curriculum content and
premium packs available to use on your LearnPad.
The implementation of the new curriculum in September 2014 has created a certain degree of concern amongst the teaching community, particularly with the inclusion of Computing as a separate (and new!) subject. As our response to this LearnPad has produced over 100 new Lesson Profiles to aid teachers in their delivery of the new elements of the curriculum.
From the Stone Age to Algorithms, from Geometry and Algebra to The Indus Valley, LearnPad has created tested and approved resource collections, together with some great teaching ideas. These new Lesson Profiles are available, for free, to all our users.
A wide variety of tools supported by LearnPad enable some really creative teaching and learning. Inside the classroom or outside on a trip; as a class, in groups, or as individual learners the tools allow learners to plan, produce and record. Use the camera for still images then annotate the result, or use it for video capture and share the results. Use the Office app, the calculator or the eBook reader whenever you need to; they’re all available whenever the LearnPads are in use.
We’ve created a selection of featured Lesson Profiles that allow you to simply scan and go. We’ve made some of them broad in their coverage with variety of curriculum mapped Categories and Resources which we think you’ll find useful. Other Lesson Profiles have been created to highlight a particular topic or sub-topic. We hope you find them useful and maybe they’ll give you some inspiration to start building some specific Lesson Profiles of your own which precisely target your own needs.
Whilst the majority of the content in the LearnPad Store is free to the user we are continually working with the very best software developers and educational publishers to source content which we think can really make a difference.
Whether it be EYFS Phonics, Books for Reluctant Readers or simulations for Secondary Science we have packaged together a selection of resources to give you instant access to some great content.
