Engage your learners

Backpack Digital brings together the benefits of a multiple-intelligence approach to language learning. Some students prefer to listen and absorb, others respond well to pictures, while others respond well to physical interaction. Backpack Digital supports users with all these preferences through its rich multi-media content, audio-visual content and flipcharts involving a range of simple interactions, such as drag and drop, erase or write-in.

Convenient & time-saving

The student’s book, listening activities and texts, videos, language summaries and specially designed, interactive activities [flip chart] can all be displayed on the board. It is a ‘one-stop-shop’ - all your teaching resources available at the touch of a screen. You don’t have to cue tapes ever again. You can even select any sentence from any listening and play it to the class by simply touching the screen.
