Pilot Programme

In the summer of 2018, Digital Schools of Distinction ran a pilot programme to see if there was a scalable support system that could support all schools in the country.  27 schools were chosen from around the country, Cocoon was the chosen tool for the pilot.

The pilot was a roaring success with a massive 95% success rate among participating schools! 

But it wasn’t just the numbers that were impressive, overwhelmingly the schools spoke about how teachers that would otherwise not have used technology in their lessons being empowered and enthused to engage with digital learning. 


But don’t just take our word for it…
