A Stevenage school has taken a very hands on approach to the principle that kids learn best by doing.
Martins Wood Primary School installed a £10,000 interactive projector last term to challenge pupils with things like quizzes and team building exercises.
Head Tom Evans said: “It is learning by doing. They are not just sitting looking at a board. They have to get up and do something. That is what makes it fun and helps them learn at the same time.”
Tom saw the WizeFloor projector at the Bett Show – which showcases new educational technology. He instantly fell in love with it because he knew how much the kids would benefit by using it.
The projector was installed at the end of the summer term but the staff needed training on how it works and so pupils only started using it recently.
Tom said: “It has 12 basic programmes which teachers can easily tweak to fit around their lessons.
It only takes about five minutes to write a new programme and get the children learning.
