Education app Quizlet can help pupils master any subject, says Matt Glotzbach

Education app Quizlet's CEO, Matt Glotzbach

Education for Everybody editor Victor Galligan asked former YouTube vice president Matt Glotzbach about his latest venture, education app Quizlet, which is used by 1million teachers worldwide…

When and why did you become involved with Quizlet? What was your inspiration?

Throughout my career, I have been focused on building engaging technologies that solve real-world problems. I had the fortune of working on the founding team of Google Apps, including Apps for Education, where it became clear how essential technology is to education. And as a Vice President at Youtube, I further witnessed the incredible impact technology has in giving people access to tools and information for learning.  

Moti-Lab water play benefits SEND children of all abilities

Moti-Lab in action with a child

Education For Everybody editor Victoria Galligan speaks to Moti-Lab founder Richard O’Neill about his invention and how the resource is ideally suited to children with additional needs.

If you’ve ever seen children playing outside with water, you’ll know how hard it is to tear them away from their work – they’re fully engaged, enjoying the sensory experience and learning how the water flows, exploring how it affects objects and how they can change its effects and generally having a blast splashing and pouring.

Music and Drama Expo is sure to hit the right note

Music drama expo

The Music & Drama Education Expo has an array of workshops on offer for special needs teachers, with sessions on accessible orchestras, inclusive ensembles and healing through music. 

The London Olympia show takes place in February and promises to deliver over 80 workshops and seminars, a comprehensive exhibition showcasing products and services from over 150 performing arts organisations, and the chance to network with 2,500 music and drama teachers from over 40 countries.

Five minute box

The Five Minute Literacy Box and Number Box are very manageable systems for helping children get started along the road towards literacy, and numeracy, and particularly for enabling the early identification of potential specific learning difficulties such as dyslexia and dyscalculia. It is an entirely multi- sensory approach, following a ‘hear it, see it, say it, write it’ approach for sounds, irregular keywords and generalised spelling. It gives children an opportunity to learn with confidence and enthusiasm; it also helps prevent those who struggle from being at the back of the line, tailing off and always having to play catch-up.
