Way back in March 2012 Polka Dot started out by helping a large corporate company look after conference speakers who were appearing at events in Europe. This meant managing travel, settling fees and being a friendly point of contact.
This evolved when the Polka Dot team were asked to plan visits to schools for groups of enthusiastic teachers who were in London for the annual BETT show. We identified some schools in UK who are using technology to enhance teaching and learning and asked if they would consider working with us. Thankfully a handful of truly exceptional education settings said yes.
We worked with those schools (and many more since then) to plan interactive sessions that excite and stimulate their guests without disrupting the day to day running of the setting.
Since then we have helped hundreds of groups of teachers from countries including France, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Belguim, Norway, Israel, Croatia, the Netherlands, Serbia, Austria, Poland, Kazakhstan, South Africa, Japan, Hong Kong and Russia by organising inspirational visits to our fabulous partner schools.
