Helping schools get through the Coronavirus outbreak

The threat of Coronavirus has already caused some schools to take action. Such decisions are never easy but with preparatory work and the right edtech solution, it is possible to maintain a basic level of teaching and learning practice outside school. 
 

How North Lakes School is using Frog


The Penrith Hub was recognised as one of the top 50 innovations at this years' #edtech50 Awards - it brings together staff and resources from 9 schools across the Eden Valley in Cumbria. The portal was solely created by the North Lakes School using Frog technology.


The original motivation for the Hub was to centralise information and to reduce workload, creating ‘one source of the truth’, ensuring there is no duplication of effort. Martyn Soulsby is part of the Leadership Team at North Lakes School, and responsible for creation of the digital hub. With public concerns over the Coronavius (COVID-19) beginning to grow Martyn decided to create a public site to help.


Take a look at what was created on the Penrith Hub...
