GBM Customer Testimonial

The workflows around setting/collecting/marking pupil work are a huge change and real benefit. I also mirror my device to the whiteboard in nearly every lesson so have all my board notes available for me to keep/plan/ share with pupils which saves time.

I can use it for creating video explainers and richer content to model for pupils. Also, lots of excellent apps but in particular assessment is more varied and spontaneous.
