The Makewaves Way
Children are at the heart of everything we do
Makewaves is made for young people. We provide a safe social network for their blogs, videos and stories to be shared with the world. We work with high profile partners to create unique opportunities and connections for all children.
A safe space makes a creative place
Makewaves provides a safe, moderated social network for children and young people to meet others and share ideas. Teachers and educators can easily support learners and check all content. Our trained and certified staff ensure Makewaves is a fun environment that encourages individual development and digital citizenship.
Everyone has skills that should be celebrated
Makewaves provides rich social media experiences that put young people in charge and challenge them to develop their skills for a real, global audience. Badges allow learners to evidence their skills and interests to colleges and employers.
Treat teachers like gods
We know that teachers need access and control to effectively manage a whole world of learning in their school. Our school blogging tools are designed for teachers not technicians. Makewaves tools support proven teaching approaches such as peer assessment, personalised feedback and project based learning to increase attainment at all levels.
Classrooms don't have walls
Our mobile and tablet apps make creating, connecting and sharing simple and easy to do whether you are in or outside the classroom. Makewaves can be accessed in school or at home allowing learning to be connected across formal, informal and non-formal settings.
Technology is a tool - it should be constantly sharpened.
The Makewaves site is constantly being developed to ensure schools benefit from the very latest social media technology. Our approach to learning is a key part of our innovation - with new models of working, in depth evaluations and cutting edge research we ensure Makewaves is always at the forefront of education.
