On Saturday, Atom Learning, a fully adaptive, teaching and learning platform designed for pupils aged 8 – 12 provided its first 35 minute online, live lesson to 978 year 5 pupils (10-year-olds) simultaneously in our virtual classroom entirely free-of-charge to parents.
In one afternoon, and at a moment of crisis, Atom became one of the largest quasi-junior schools in the UK that’s available to everyone. A press release is attached to this email.
Wherever they are in the world, parents can book their child into any of our free lessons by requesting a clickable timetable from firstname.lastname@example.org.
In light of COVID-19, and with the support of our partner schools, Atom Learning will continue to provide unlimited free access to online live lessons hosted by professional teachers for the foreseeable future. From next week, Atom will be hosting a full daily timetable of lessons in English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning.
Please email email@example.com (co-founder) if you would like any further information.
I have included some senior teacher comments I have permission to share below:
‘Dulwich Prep was an early adopter of Atom Learning and we have been very impressed by the content and underlying technology from the outset. We find the lesson and homework builders very easy to use and have seen quantifiable improvements in pupil attainment, especially in reasoning. In the event we experience school closures, Atom will prove a valuable resource to supplement our online learning efforts.’ (Mark Scholey, Deputy Head, Dulwich Prep School).
‘Atom Learning has proved a very useful platform, both for work that is controlled by the school, and for self-directed learning. The tools available on the school platform have allowed us to establish online homework for pupils at a bespoke level of difficulty and timing, and focusing on specific skill areas within English, Mathematics and Reasoning. The pupils enjoy the work, the platform is straightforward for teachers to operate and monitor progress, and there have been quantifiable increases in pupil attainment’. (Tony Chan, Deputy Head, Sussex House School).
“Atom Learning set out to deal with the considerable challenges around private tuition by creating an affordable and adaptive online learning platform that schools and parents could get behind. Atom automates and surpasses the capabilities of even the most proficient tutor in a way that’s fun and engaging for the student. WCCS is very happy to support their good work and long may it continue!” – Neil McLaughlan, Head of Westminster Cathedral Choir School
