    • Recommendation to build your lesson plans and activities on the EdChat Network for styling support.

    • Team members can use the sandbox I have started here to test new features, simply reply to the post.
    • The help page on this does have a little code but it's nothing excessive and this will always be your point of reference:
    • I will set a time to run a demo for team members who would like some support with using the new editor features.

    Lessons can now be as simple as teacher click, explain, student do.
    Click and explain keeps it simple and easy for all educators without academic backgrounds, homeschoolers or those teaching out of their specialty.

    Modern economic material. The U.K's current economic position looks similar to the time of the Great Depression. I'm thinking the reason this hasn't been declared such is due to the amount of money printing & stock buybacks. In the 1930's, 90 year ago there was a depression in Britain and around the world, there were hunger marches & protests in through the streets. ☮?
