After thirty years of creating award-winning software, Sherston Software has made the decision to give away its online learning platform free of charge. Planet Sherston’s Education Consultant, Cathy Parker, explains further.
“Although there are a lot of free resources available now, teachers still have to invest a significant amount of their own time and effort to find and vet these before deciding how to use them in their school. Never before have teachers benefited from having the functionality that you get in Planet Sherston which includes automated marking, an adaptive learning engine, progress tracking AND high quality, curriculum-mapped content that goes with it, all for free.”
Sherston’s track record shows that their award-winning content helps pupils of all abilities to improve their skills. In fact, the company is so confident that pupils and staff will love using Planet Sherston that they are counting on schools to invest in some of the additional paid for modules that can be added to Planet Sherston at any time. These include a brand new Rainforest Coding add-on: a new collection of adventures and activities designed to make Scratch programming easier to understand and fun to learn.
Planet Sherston contains over 3000 English, Maths and Science resources all mapped to the curriculum and individual ‘I can’ statements, includes easy-to-use tools to create and assign tasks and has a pupil interface matches the best in modern gaming sites.
