"I am very impressed with eChalk. I use lots of software in my Physics teaching and eChalk is certainly one of my favourites. The simulations and animations are so clear, and fun too, they really help the pupils learn, especially the more difficult concepts. I think this is a superb website with clear and interesting animations that really engage the pupils."

Ben Porter, Head of Physics, Maricourt Catholic High School

Relevance to the curriculum

Support for teachers

eChalk's raison d'etre is to provide tools that help teachers explain ideas and make classroom learning interesting. Applications are ideal for use with data projectors and fully exploit the touch-sensitivity of interactive whiteboards. Many activities are particularly appropriate for whole-class teaching where the teacher wishes to engage the entire group.

All of eChalk's resources are authored by subject experts with first-hand experience of classroom teaching. The activities are intuitive and easy to use and they all come with guidance on how to employ them in the classroom. Many are accompanied by printable worksheets to complement the interactive content.
