Students from Beckham class at Beaconsfield in New Malden have been enjoying learning to use an app on the iPad called Nearpod. Nearpod is a classroom tool for lecturers to engage students with interactive lessons and assessments that students can access on any device.

As part of their cooking enterprise, Shaima uses Nearpod to enter staff orders, which sends the order upstairs to Lauren's computer, allowing Lauren to prepare the ingredients.

This has allowed students to develop literacy and ICT skills within this work related learning session.
Whilst using this new app, Shaima and Lauren have been developing their communication skills and peer support to make the enterprise a success.
