Well, we have just received the email - Reach Out Reporter has been shortlisted as a finalist for a Bett Award 2018!
With two awards (an ERA and a Learning on Screen Award) already firmly under their belt, the team at Imperial College London and Twig Education are so proud to be part of the continuing success of this digital tool for teachers.
Shortlisted in the ‘Free Digital Content or Open Educational Resources’ category, here is what one teacher had to say about the resource:
“Reach Out Reporter is easily my favourite free resource for teachers to come out in recent years. For a number of years I had been trying to come up with a sustainable way to keep children in my school up to date with current news from the scientific world that they would understand and be interested in, but it proved to be such a huge task that I did not have much success. Until now, I don’t believe there has been any collection of this sort that allows teachers to quickly and easily share current science news from a trusted and reliable source that is accessible to the children”.

With judging taking place early December, and the Bett Awards taking place early next year, we will have our fingers crossed as we continue to bring you the latest topical science news in Reach Out Reporter.
