Recommended Usage

Encounter Edu is designed to be as flexible as possible. Teachers and parents may want to use just a single video or lesson. However, it has more impact when the different sections are integrated. For instance, teach a lesson, view a 360-degree gallery, take part in a live broadcast and then review.

We recommend daily usage of 30+ minutes as Maestro is integral to teaching learning and assessment.

Most Helpful Reviews

Encounter Edu

K.Hodgetts, Head of Science: such a range of resources on the website with so many more I still want to use, I just have to choose which ones and when to incorporate into my planning.
Liudmyla, EFL Teacher: The amount of information, researches, Live lessons, experiments and live discussion with explorers and scientists are of significant importance for education and future jobs choice. Teachers and students with their parents can find here a lot of explanations on how to solve problems we face today and how to make this world better!
Jennifer, Teacher: Excellent quality resources

Curriculum Maestro

Cherida Gibson, Nurture Coordinator: It's a fantastic system that helps planning, tracking and assessment. It's just a very difficult system to use and can be complicated to find the areas that you need. It would be great if the system was easier to use and simpler to navigate.
Maz Whittaker, Class teacher, KS2 Leader, English Lead, SLT: Lots of great resources. We particularly love the art and DT lessons- they show clear progress and building of skills within each unit. The RE units have really useful info and avoid teachers having to do extensive research. We still have some trouble navigating the system- the website is very 'busy'. Some history and geog units are very reading heavy so we extract the texts and use those for whole class reading lessons. Would appreciate some more creative activity ideas for humanities subjects- seems to be a lot of read/research and fill in the sheet.
Conrad FOX, Headteacher: We are in a much better place with CM than with our old curriculum. We will be making it more bespoke in the second year.

Requirements

Encounter Edu

Encounter Edu requires a device with good internet connection. The website is responsive, so all sections can be viewed on a mobile, tablet or laptop and projected in a classroom. It may be easier to view downloaded resources on a tablet or laptop device. To use 360-degree media, classes can choose options from using projector and white board, tablets or smartphones and virtual reality viewers. For live lessons, teachers will need to display the live video and have access to Zoom or YouTube depending on the lesson they are joining.
