Exam Stress Solutions - Discovery - Digital Development 2021
In response to pupils requiring further information and access to resources that support their learning following our in-person training, we have been working with our partners at Catalyst to develop an offer of digital support.
We were project developers and delivers for this exciting project that had us brought together again with young people, following the isolation of lockdown 3. This time we were the primary learners, seeking to understand more about they ways in which young people consume digital content to determine how we might help them to continue to embed their learning and practice effective techniques to cope with their stress.
By the end of the project we had designed our first prototype!
