A talented Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Dance Tutor has been recognised nationally for her expertise in teaching classes online and using the very latest technology and apps during the Covid-19 national emergency.

Poppy Olah’s innovative and inspirational teaching has featured in the Times Educational Supplement and is helping Tutors across the UK to enhance their remote teaching while students are remaining quarantines in their own homes to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 infection.

Poppy has shared her teaching methods, the technology she uses, alongside photos and video clips, in an informative blog post in TES, the respected education publication for teaching professionals.

She has written how her Advanced Vocational students have embraced the opportunities for creativity afforded by working at home and overcome every challenge with wide-ranging support from College, from providing IT equipment and wi-fi connectivity, to tutorials on how to make the most of the extensive Google for Education Tools.
