It was 1856 and the toy theatre trade was flourishing over in the other side of London. Covent Garden was home to the nations theatres. Here the printers of the day capitalized on London’s favorite entertainment and produced printed theatrical portraits of stage stars and with them ‘The Juvenile Drama’, a miniature theatre to construct from paper on which Victorians would perform their own version of the current melodrama or pantomime.</p> <p>Back in Hoxton, Pollock as a young man working in the fur trade fell in love with Miss Eliza Redington, the pretty daughter of the owner of the nearby Theatrical Print Warehouse and expert colourist. The romance led to marriage and the inheritance of the family business.</p> <p>Then in the 1880s, Robert Louis Stevenson visited London and went on a search for theatrical sheets. Stevenson found Pollock so delightful, he later immortalised him in an essay: “If you love art, folly or the bright eyes of children, speed to Pollock’s”. Consequently, by the 1920s, a pilgrimage to Pollock’s shop had become popular with the great actors, performers and designers of the London stage, the likes of which included Charlie Chaplin, the impresario Diaghilev as well as a young boy called Winston Churchill.</p> <p>On 22nd December the toy theatre will arrive to the iPad. It will introduce the toy theatre to a new generation of actors, art students, toy collectors and anyone interested in the inventive novelties of childhood. This new-age development keeps alive the spirit of Benjamin Pollock and his toy theatres.</p> <p>Downloadable press release</p> <p>Sneak preview on youTube</p> Mon, 20 Dec 2010 23:00:00 +0000 Ko-Su Mobile Learning Platform Pilots at CFGS Tower Hamlets Girls Secondary. http://www.zuztertu.com/news_single.php?idnews=16 <p>December 2010 saw the newly developed Ko-Su mobile learning platform begin its in-class pilot on iPod Touches at the CFGS Tower Hamlet Girl’s Secondary School, in a move to revolutionise how conventional classes are taught.</p> <p>The Ko-Su solution was first envisaged in January 2010. The concept was to provide an innovative and intuitive solution to deliver education via mobile platforms. It is the first offering on the iMoFi portalT.he pilot scheme started with the CFGS Science Department in December and will run until February 2011.</p> <p>Central Foundation is a voluntary aided comprehensive school for 11-18 inner-city girls in Bow, London. Some 75 per cent of the school’s students are bilingual and thus, this new approach to classroom teaching, has been enthusiastically adopted by these early adopters, to trial this new innovation in educational learning.</p> <p>Mobile learning can play an important role in education across all levels. The opportunity exists for teachers to create tailored lessons that take advantage of the flexibility and individualisation afforded by mobile devices. The science teachers at Tower Hamlets are now enjoying the benefits of being able to tailor lesson support for students’ individual needs and capabilities. The other key innovation of this approach is that it allows the teacher/ pupil interaction to happen from anywhere, so therefore being able to monitor homework and give feedback whilst away from the classroom.</p> <p>The course of the pilot will be carefully monitored in the view of rolling this out in other London schools. If this contemporary strategy proves to help step-up results in under-performing schools, educationalists are suggesting this could be worth the initial investments and have dramatic results and implication for how the curriculum is presented to students.</p> <p>Downloadable press release</p> Tue, 14 Dec 2010 23:00:00 +0000 Zuztertu featured in new book http://www.zuztertu.com/news_single.php?idnews=18 <p>Zuztertu has been featured in Emma Jones's new book "Go Global" published by Harriman House as a success story on how to be a globally trading company.</p> <p>Click for more information on the book.</p> <p>Zuztertu designs and develops educational mobile apps and solutions.</p> Wed, 08 Dec 2010 23:00:00 +0000 A new standard set for interactive revision http://www.zuztertu.com/news_single.php?idnews=15 <p>In collaboration with the educational publishers, 4science, Zuztertu has released a new revision app for students studying GCSE Biology.
