A teaching resource for schools to learn about where our food comes from
The Fairtrade Schools website was in need of a full refresh to ensure teachers and students could benefit from the valuable curriculum resources that Fairtrade provides. We also wanted to encourage and increase the registration of Fairtrade Schools nationwide.
We carried out an audit of the existing site which directly influenced the design, build and functionality of the new website. With a growing number of resources, we grouped these into logical families allowing teachers and students to find exactly what they need. The resource hub can be viewed by map for a more interactive experience – great for the classroom – or as a simple grid view, both of which allow for clear filtering by age group, (including Early Years) and resource types (lesson plans, assembly plans, films, games etc).
Working with Fairtrade Schools on an ongoing basis allows us to track analytics on monthly basis. With these insights we can recommend which areas are most valuable and where we can continue to make improvements. Inclusion of a feedback tab also allows users – usually teachers and students – to directly report back to us on how they found their experience and what can be improved further.
