Lord Puttnam visits Walthamstow School for Girls

11 July, 2018

Lord Puttnam visited Walthamstow School for Girls on Wednesday July 11th to see Learning by Questions (LbQ), a new type of teaching that has been trialled there for the past ten months. 

LbQ is an online teaching and learning platform that transforms the traditional ‘teach from the front’ classroom, reducing unnecessary workloads for teachers and could increase learning by more than 25%. Walthamstow School for Girls have been part of a progressive LbQ feedback project with 49 other schools from across the UK, in which 92% of the teachers believe that this pedagogy will be widely used in the next five years. 

Meryl Davies, Headteacher said “We are really delighted to have been chosen as an ambassador school for this innovative scheme and the students have responded well to the instant feedback they receive on their learning.  We were excited to host a visit by Lord Puttnam, who was also treated to a tour of the school.” 

Lord Puttnam was delighted to experience the new platform first hand and was hugely impressed by the iniative.
