We love collaborating with companies to help schools further enhance the impact that the International Primary Curriculum can have in their classrooms. We have formed collaborations with organisations that share our philosophy around improving learning through a whole child approach and offer resources that support teachers in ensuring that learning is fun and engaging. We are delighted to announce our latest collaboration with now>press>play.
now>press>play is an immersive audio resource that uses wireless headphones to engage primary school children in the curriculum through emotion, imagination and movement. Immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure they’ll never forget. You can watch an Experience in action here.
Together, we’ve mapped the now>press>play Experiences to IPC units. With a current catalogue of 60 units, now>press>play plans to increase that number by at least 10 each year. Both now>press>play and the IPC team have met with schools who are using both the Experiences and the IPC, and their feedback has been that one really benefits the other.
We have seen the positive effect for children when now>press>play Experiences have been used as the Entry Point to a unit. The total engagement really sparks curiosity for the learning journey ahead.
Anna Vaughan, Head of IPC at Fieldwork Education said:
“This is another fantastic collaboration that we’re very excited about. The journey of mapping our International Primary Curriculum (IPC) units to the now>press>play Experiences has shown us just how interlinked we are. The feedback that we’ve received so far from schools has been hugely encouraging. We’re looking forward to continuing to work together with now>press>play"
Alice Lacey, CEO of now>press>play said:
'We are so excited to be partnering with the IPC. Our organisations share a passion for bringing the curriculum to life through creativity and imagination. We look forward to working closely with the IPC as we develop our curriculum offering and helping more IPC schools to make the learning experience fun and engaging!”
