Colchester Castle’s new digital learning programme enables your class to take part in a trip to Colchester Castle without ever leaving the classroom! Whether you are a local school in Essex, or in another part of the country, your students can immerse themselves in Colchester’s story and learn all about the mighty Romans.

The world is catching up with a truth that we’ve championed at Learning Ladders for the last 5 years - that children’s learning outcomes are greatly improved by teachers, parents and learners working in partnership. 

E-sports professionals, Youtubers or physics professors? Perhaps the differences are less than you might think. That is, when it comes to the technical equipment necessary for interacting with the viewers, or, in this case – the students.

There has been much fanfare about technology coming to the rescue when the pandemic hit earlier this year, and schools around the world were forced to close, or reduce activities to the minimum.

But, despite this, we absolutely do not want learners’ education to suffer – and we are pretty sure you feel the same.
