What makes these apps different?
Written by an experienced teacher and writer for children, our resources are lively but not gimmicky. The content is comprehensive, authoritative and based on what teachers have said they want, and has been thoroughly school-tested.
As well as being fun and engaging for pupils, the resources run through the nimbl system so teachers can see pupil's test results and progress through the activities. This means our resources can be used as a quick and easy measure of engagement and improvement.
The resources are fully interactive and encourage independent learning. Each pupil can move at their own speed and get a real sense of achievement as they move through the stages.
Prizewinning author Stewart Ross is a UK-qualified teacher with three degrees and wide experience working in a variety of schools and universities in Ceylon (Sri Lanka), the USA, Saudi Arabia, France and the UK.
I have been writing history books and other material for school children since 1985. I taught history at school level to 1989, and since then I have been a frequent provider of history and literacy workshops in schools in the UK and overseas. For five years I was Chair of Canterbury Branch of the Historical Association and worked hard in that capacity to develop history in local schools.
Stewart became a full-time writer in 1989, since when he has published some 300 fiction and non-fiction books for all ages. His most recent awards, in the UK and the USA, were for his book on exploration, Into the Unknown (Walker 2011). As well as giving talks and workshops in a wide range of schools, Stewart speaks at literary festivals and on cruise liners, and teaches creative and professional writing in Britain and France. He is a former chair of the Society of Authors Educational Writers Group and has recently worked for a London academy chain, writing all primary and secondary material for the new history curriculum.
