Pupils' Picasso

16th September 2005 at 01:00
Widely praised by teachers at last year's SETT, this young Edinburgh company which likes to quote Albert Einstein - "Knowledge is great but imagination is better" - launches several new software packages this year.

"Picasso provides a range of powerful tools that encourage pupils to take ownership of their learning," says director Mark Cunningham.

Starting with 5-14 guidelines in a friendly format, Picasso enables pupils to evaluate their strengths and development needs, set improvement targets, produce personal learning plans and monitor progress.

New versions of Picasso aimed at early primary and upper secondary allow them to do so throughout their schooldays, says Mr Cunningham.

"We are also launching Pathways CPD, which will be invaluable for teachers planning and managing their continuing professional development."
