A group of University of Edinburgh students are so enthusiastic about developing tech solutions to help teachers that they spent their Christmas holidays working on a prototype tool to help pupils with exam revision. In collaboration with Katie, a Scottish history teacher, they created – a tool for easily searching SQA history past paper questions from multiple years at National 5 and Higher levels.

The group, called Altra, hope this will be helpful during these difficult times when technology can do so much to facilitate teaching online. The past paper explorer is free of charge, they are not looking to charge money for it, only to expand their network of connections with teachers. They are also open to new project ideas from teachers of any subject and are happy to provide a free initial consultation, more details here:
