EDLounge is proud to be working with a range of PRUs within the UK to deliver a learning platform (EDVirtual) where the PRU staff, support workers and teachers can deliver live sessions and timetabled support periods to their learners throughout their Local Authority.
Learners not accessing education can start this way.
Learners with mental health issues can have barriers to their learning removed so that they start to log on and begin learning at the right level with a support officer they know on the other end of a webcam.
A timetabled approach can be taken so that every learner has a personalised pathway with one-to-one teaching sessions.
With the webcams and secure platform, the PRU's staff can log on and deliver securely to any learner in that selected time.
Everything a learner does on the EDVirtual and EDLounge platform is tracked and recorded.
At Springwell, Lincolnshire, we have been using EDVirtual as part of our targeted intervention programme for students who have been excluded from mainstream settings and have struggled to integrate into alternative provision working alongside peers.
For many of our students, anxiety creates a barrier to their learning, but with EDVirtual the pressure to perform in front of peers is removed, which has meant that for two particular students attendance has gone from virtually nothing to 80% plus, which has, of course, also raised their attainment dramatically. The interface for the students is very user friendly, and they actively enjoy their lessons, even those who have previously hated school.
From a teacher’s point of view, the system allows me to provide a totally individualised curriculum for each student, and to track progress with great accuracy. The marking and feedback system is incredibly helpful, as the lesson is marked automatically as the student works through it, so that I can focus on giving useful verbal and written feedback rather than spending hours over the minutiae of checking answers. The variety of subjects and number of lessons available provide flexibility, and a much broader offer than students on one to one tuition usually receive.
