Learning by Questions (LbQ), a teaching and learning programme conceived by EdTech pioneer Tony Cann CBE (Founder of Promethean) has this week become the latest company to join the Launchpad arm of the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA).
LbQ has a team of 30 educators who receive guidance from the Institute for Effective Education at the University of York. It utilises ‘best practice’ pedagogy, cloud platform and curriculum aligned question sets during lessons. Questions are delivered to student devices along with automatic instant personalised feedback, self-paced private learning and real time analysis for teachers so there is no need for teacher marking.
Independent studies in both Maths and Grammar show that Learning by Questions could increase the effectiveness of teaching and learning by more than 25%.
After a £1 million Teacher Feedback Study across the UK, maths questions are structured around mastery, to which the Government pledged £41 million in 2016.
The Beta version is on the way followed by full lift off in Autumn 2018.
Nina Iles, Head of EdTech at BESA, said: “BESA is delighted to welcome Learning by Questions into its ever growing Launchpad community. BESA is committed to helping teachers and schools reduce teacher workload and works tirelessly to support companies which produce innovative tools and resources with which to help them do so, such as Learning By Questions.
“Our Launchpad programme provides all of its subscribers with a multitude of opportunities to engage with not only BESA members, but also the wider education and EdTech eco-systems. We very much look forward to working with Tony, Alan and their team.”
Tony Cann, founder of Learning by Questions, said: “Educators are, by their nature, a community and BESA is a place where we can all come together, share ideas, hold each other up to certain standards and find solutions for future generations of students and teachers. Learning by Questions is very proud to be a Launchpad.”
