Learning by Questions (LbQ), has been presented with the ‘best education resource in secondary education’ award at the annual Education Resource Awards. This follows the organisation’s success in January 2019, when LbQ also won a Bett Award in the ‘Innovator of the Year’ category. LbQ was a finalist in an unprecedented six award categories.
LbQ is the brain child of Tony Cann, founder of the Promethean interactive whiteboard, used in schools across the world.
The LbQ resource was praised by the judges for its outstanding impact on children’s learning. The classroom app is filled with curriculum-aligned question sets and provides immediate feedback to accelerate learning while reducing teacher workload. Despite winning the secondary school award, the resource also spans the primary school curriculum.
The Education Resource Awards play a key role in identifying and rewarding excellence in education trade. The winning organisations were announced at the Education Resource dinner in Birmingham on Friday 22 March.
Commenting on this award, the judges commended LbQ, stating: “the resource offers an advanced pedagogy in reinforcing correct answers and identifying misconceptions before they become embedded. The judges saw how the resource presents teachers with the information in a considered and relevant form. The teacher mode was highly praised, and the strap line says it all – ‘Be the teacher you always wanted to be and unleash pupils’ potential.”
Tony Cann, founder and director of Learning by Questions said, “There are two education resource award programmes each year, the Bett Awards and the Education Resource Awards. The fact that we have now been presented with an award at both ceremonies is a testament to the power of our resource and its incredibly positive impact on teaching and learning.
“If you’re looking for evidence that the UK edtech resource industry is world-leading, look no further than LbQ. I know that at both award programmes, the esteemed judging panel of educationalists face a huge task in deciding which of the hundreds of entries should win so we are thrilled that they, as well as thousands of teachers across the UK, consistently recognise the true value of LbQ.”
