What are the challenges?

Pearson are focussed on expanding their digital and blended delivery offer to enhance the learning possibilities for their learners.

The current main assessment method of their BTEC qualifications is coursework, which requires students to carry out research. In our BTEC pilot study in April 2019 we found that most students use online content to undertake research, rather than books. Teachers report that learners at level 2 and 3 need support with finding appropriate informational content online that they can understand, meaning teachers spend planning time signposting relevant, readable educational websites for their students. Students told us they spend time locating online content, needing to find and use a range of sources to achieve better grades.

The Wizenoze solution

The product: 
Together with their teaching professionals, we built Pearson a customised solution matched to their course content and learning outcomes. We call the solution Web for BTEC, powered by Wizenoze. Web for BTEC contains a curated collection of subject-specific, age-appropriate websites. 

The impact: 
Web for BTEC provides learners with the most relevant and up-to-date online educational content to enhance their vocational knowledge and experience. Web for BTEC improves the outcomes of learners’ coursework through the use of a research tool that enables them to undertake more efficient and independent research and deepen their learning.

 

To energise the minds of today to be ready for their future.
