A real teacher versus online – a no brainer, right? But, tragically, too many pupils have had neither during lockdown and have lost touch with the whole experience and habit of learning.
However, whether youngsters are back at school or still at home, help is at hand: the ground-breaking Flexitable was invented by a teaching assistant to help every child learn the basic principles of maths. Whether it is multiplication, division, addition or subtraction, these ingenious, tactile numeracy charts encourage pupils to learn and remember this vital information.
Flexitable was in fact the very first product Nigel Chute ever got to market and it’s helped thousands of youngsters around the world having particular value within the area of special needs. Both learners and teachers say it’s the physicality of the item – quite literally hands on – which brings the subject to life. Now Flexitable is ready to play a vital role in the post-Covid world of education, helping pupils get off to a flying restart, catch up and build confidence for the future.
“Chute Design has turned our Flexitable product from a crude inventors’ mock-up into a marketable and cost-effective production solution. This also means our customers have been given invaluable opportunities to customise and brand the design to support their own business objectives. Right from the beginning, Nigel believed in our product and really drove it forward, carrying out manufacturing assessments, product and graphic design, drawings for the patent and initial marketing activities.”
