  • NEW Psychology Poster Range!

    Psychology

    Here at Daydream, we are excited to announce the launch of our new Psychology poster range!

    Over the last couple of months, the New Product Development team at Daydream has been working tirelessly on the designs to ensure they are of the highest standard! The posters have been given a fresh new look, which we feel is perfectly suited to the Higher Education sector. Each chart covers topical information whilst covering a broad range of GCSE, AS Level and A Level Psychology topics, including key information from the AQA, OCR and WJEC Specifications.

    Designed in consultation with a core group of teachers and industry experts, our psychology posters are fantastic learning aids that improve understanding and provide a base knowledge from which pupils can build a deeper understanding. The versatile charts are great revision tools and can also be used to provide guidance during lessons.

    The new Psychology A1 poster range includes 20 key topic, which can be viewed here.

    Daydream would like to say a special thank you to Catherine Reohorne and all of the consultant teachers who helped with the design of the psychology posters.

  • Pocket Posters help achieve catch up premium success

    Pocket Posters help pupils in Madeley Academy

    16th March, 2015

    Daydream Education Pocket Posters hit the spot with Madeley Academy’s Targeted Student Intervention Programme

    Students at Madeley Academy are supported with a range of resources from Daydream Education, including our extensive range of posters and interactive
    computer software. In particular, our Pocket Poster Books featuring mini versions of our highly acclaimed posters have been of great help in students
    making progress at this successful Academy in Telford, West Midlands. Targeted intervention students in English and Maths in Year 8 have benefited from our
    pocket sized poster resource. They contain the very best of what we do in an easy to read format with lots of visual stimulus helping to underpin learning.

    At Madeley Academy, Teaching Assistants work on the front line in collaboration with Teachers and are a driving force in the success of their students. It
    was one of their Teaching Assistants who first considered how Daydream resources could help after being passed some pocket posters after a colleague
    visited the Bett Show last year at the Excel Centre in London.

    Fiona Maiden, Teaching Assistant said, “Each student is given an A5 pocket display booklet which contains individual target sheets for English and Maths.
    The Daydream Pocket Posters slot into the A5 pocket display booklet along with other materials including a reading log, book review sheet and a mathematics
    times table. The folder is an ideal size for the student, and fits perfectly in the new Academy Bag carried by the student at all times during school.”

    The results speak for themselves. All forty students on the intervention programme achieved a level 4 in English and Maths by the end of Year 8 with the
    majority increasing more than 3 sub levels. The students are still using the Daydream Pocket Posters during lessons in Year 9 to help them in their work.
    They are positive about the Pocket Posters, saying that they help a great deal with their work in class and especially with their homework.

    5star_recommended-297x300

    We are proud to announce that our Punctuation App has been awarded 5 Stars and EAS Recommended Status by the Educational App Store (EAS).
    EAS is an independent store that identifies the very best apps and certifies them from a curriculum/learning outcomes perspective.

    In their review, EAS reviewers praised the visual and engaging nature of the app and how comprehensive it is:

    ‘What I really like about this app is its attention to detail, making it a very comprehensive resource’.

    The flexibility and intuitive nature of the app was also notes by the reviewers:

    ‘The app looks great as it uses strong, bright colours and is very easy to navigate and use.’

    Read the full review here:

    Educational App Store Review

    There are now over 100,000 educational apps available in the stores therefore, it is important to be able to identify what makes a good educational app.

    The Educational App Store created the EAS Certification in order to benchmark the apps against a set of pedagogical criteria and academic research.

    The 10 main things to look for in the best educational apps (according to EAS):

    • A strong association with learning outcomes (whether curriculum or non-curriculum based).

    • Interactivity with the learner via correction and feedback on any questions that are set.

    • An ease of use of the app so that the learner does not need any guidance and teach one’s self if necessary.

    • A variety of levels in the app so that learners can progress and different levels of learning within the same age-group can be taken into account.

    •The ability to collaborate on work with others and co-create.

    •The impetus to motivate learners to go beyond the apps and find more information on the subject at hand.

    •The impetus to engage learners and hold their attention to fulfil learning objectives.

    •Clear pricing, no in-app purchases and privacy controls.

    •Good quality, design and sound features.

    •Content without errors in subject matter and/or spelling.

    Our app ticked every box within the EAS criteria meaning that they think our app is pretty amazing! We are overwhelmed at the review response and are even more proud of our fantastic educational apps.

    The punctuation app is available through the Apple and Google Play App stores for only £1.49!
