Our knowledge of our craft and Primary Connections’ business allowed us to deliver a product well beyond the scope of Primary Connections’ original brief.
Book learning for the digital age
The Australian Academy of Science’s Primary Connections (PC) came to us in search of an innovative, proven and reliable partner to work with to create digital resources that would enhance their printed science materials for primary school kids. Primary Connections’ ultimate aim is to improve the quality in primary science teaching resources across Australia.
Teachers report one of their biggest challenges is building their own resources, which takes up a lot of their own personal time, and means similar materials are being created many times across many teachers. PC asked us to build a series of stand-alone teaching resources for interactive whiteboards so curriculum materials can be taught collaboratively in the classroom. They wanted to make lesson planning and delivery easier.
So we did what not many other agencies would do: we talked ourselves out of a job.
You did what, now?
We’re stayers, not players
That’s what she said
“WE LOVE YOU, METTRO! You listened to what we needed, and came back with ideas that were so innovative and exciting, and went far beyond what we even realised was possible. And what you delivered went above and beyond yet again, with a beautiful interface that was user friendly and that made our teachers’ jobs so much easier.
We really have loved working with you, and looking forward to a long and happy working relationship as we take our next steps in the online environment, as well as developing ebooks down the track.”
