LiteracyPlanet launches online school for teachers

Intrepica Academy, a new initiative from Australia-based online learning platform, LiteracyPlanet, is based around peer-to-peer engagement

Australia-based online learning platform, LiteracyPlanet, has launched an interactive virtual school for teachers.

Intrepica Academy consists of a number of free 30-minute courses on a range of subjects – including managing students, group reporting and managing classrooms – which are completed by answering 10-15 questions.

Intrepica “goes way beyond the traditional online training platform,” according to LiteracyPlanet CEO, Tom Richardson.

“We know teachers can feel isolated in their online learning experiences and a great way to further develop skills is through peer-to-peer engagement, which is why the academy has a built-in community forum.

“Users of the platform will be inspired to elevate their learning by exploring what works in literacy teaching – together. We want this to be a space where we can help nurture the growth of great literacy scholars and encourage teachers to support each other right across the globe.”
