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.

Most Helpful Reviews

ToodleBit

Mary, Part time teacher: It is easy to use, clear and does fulfil the objectives for the children.
Cathy Paxman, KS2 Teacher: Toodlebit is just so easy to use and deliver. Our Teaching assistants who lack confidence when it comes to computing lessons were able to understand the objectives and work with the children more confidently. The children really enjoyed the activities and their is scope for all to improve at their own levels. The instructions can be played as many times as the children need and those who have difficulties reading text were able ton access the information through the spoken word button which meant that nobody was held back or needed to rely on others.
Simon, Teacher: They really are much simpler to use than I expected and the way the Toodlebit scheme is laid out means that it is straightforward, exciting and accessible to all.

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

Requirements

ToodleBit

Pupils need access to either desktops, laptops, Chromebooks or Ipads plus internet access. Pupils will need access to the downloads folder on desktops/laptops machines.

 

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.

 
Training

ToodleBit

Teachers will need a 45 minutes training slot. All material for this is provided via the online classroom.

 

Encounter Edu

There is a wide-range of support articles in the professional development section, including advice on using the site during any period of school closure, which is also aimed at parents. The teacher resources are designed for use by novice and expert teachers alike and a number of resources have been adapted for ‘at home’ use. Live chat and email support is also offered for any further questions.
