Schools minister Nick Gibb MP says that he loves text books, and that they are key to raising standards in schools. So he ought to welcome the new digital text book and learning resources platform – classoos – that debuted at the BETT 2018 educational technology show in London.
Despite his allergy to the digital world Mr Gibb wants to extend the use of text books, and classoos could well do that. It also lifts a great weight from children’s school bags and allows them to share all sorts of digital addenda, including YouTube clips to enrich their experiences. It should save schools on text books, but also on the expensive photocopying they generate for worksheets.
