ComputerXplorers to help Leicester school kids improve their IT skills
ComputerXplorers is to pilot a video game class at Inglehurst Junior School, Leicester this autumn. 60 year five pupils will have a weekly IT lesson where they will be taught how to design and create their own video games while learning core IT skills based on the National Curriculum. The course is three months long, and once completed will be professionally assessed.
Head Teacher at Inglehurst Junior School Chris Glass comments: 'I know the children are going to enjoy this class immensely. Diane and ComputerXplorers have an excellent grasp of the National Curriculum requirements and have demonstrated that they can be brought to life in a stimulating way.'
Winner of the ComputerXplorers 'Rookie of the Year' award, franchisee Diane Taylor comments: 'Inglehurst Junior School is very lucky to have a forward-thinking head teacher who is passionate about her students. She understands that transferable computer skills are essential and that the best way to motivate children to learn is to engage them with something that is relevant and exciting.'
Diane operates the south Midlands territory and won the award in recognition of her first year success and for her hard work in helping to adapt the ComputerXplorers software to the UK's school curriculum.
