Kent school flips their classrooms (video case study)

Kent school flips their classrooms
For a school in Tenterden, Kent, integrative classroom technologies have a significant role in supporting their personalised learning agenda.

Homewood School and Sixth Form Centre is a forward-thinking school that aims to make the learning process as flexible and intuitive as possible for its learners.

Focused on applied learning and dedicated to the continued innovation of its teaching and learning strategies, Homewood formed a digital curriculum partnership with LearnersCloud.

In the run-up to the partnership, Homewood had decided to build e-learning into their curriculum, investing in digital resources and transforming the way students and teachers felt towards technology in the classroom.

To support their objectives we developed a solution that not only supported new and existing teaching strategies but also enabled students to learn, revise and test themselves in their own time and at their own pace.

When Homewood decided to build e-learning into their curriculum, they needed a solution that would adapt to their existing approach. ‘We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of the personalised learning agenda,’ says Chris Foreman, Vice- Principal, Partnerships, at Homewood. ‘When we reviewed the online e-learning market we found most offerings were too rigid, or put up too many barriers to learning.’

‘With LearnersCloud, we can give our students total flexibility in terms of how and when they learn,’ says Chris. ‘They can learn at a time and place that suits them – whenever they have a spare moment – with access to their GCSE lesson videos, 24/7.’
