Schools like Yew Tree Primary in Sandwell are at the forefront of education innovation - this school in particular loves to create videos. However, it was only when headteacher Howard Martin and his colleagues decided to adopt TrilbyTV that the medium was fully-realised in Yew Tree, with students and teachers able to broadcast their films anywhere on-site.

Yew Tree Primary School in Sandwell, West Midlands have undertaken a new technology initiative powered by edtech specialist Trilby’s new product. The Apple Regional Training Centre, who are keen on all KS2 pupils having their own iPads for learning, have begun using TrilbyTV, a simple-to-use video sharing app and online storage service that allows students to share video projects with each other and around their school. This development is part of a collaboration going back several years, with Trilby having catered for many of the school’s technological needs.

For the past few years, the school has been looking for a solution to use, share and securely store the videos staff and pupils have created. Yew Tree have dabbled with videos in the past, but have lacked the proper infrastructure to show the movies as-and-when they were needed. The use of TrilbyTV, however, gives the school the ability to show pupil-made recordings at any location within the school with the minimum of planning. Within the first few weeks of using the product, the children have already produced over fifty videos within the school.

“After speaking to the team at Trilby, who were as supportive of our needs as ever, we decided to introduce TrilbyTV to our school,” said Howard Martin, Headteacher at Yew Tree. “We couldn’t believe how simple it was to set up and use; both pupils and teachers were up and running within minutes. It’s a very intuitive and straightforward product. The process is fast and efficient, takes up little teacher time and doesn’t need any technical expertise. Teaching staff moderate and publish the videos within seconds.

“The children are so thrilled to share their work in this way; it is a fantastic way to celebrate their achievements. TrilbyTV is a superb product which will hugely enhance the learning environment for both pupils and staff alike. It will bring the curriculum to life and enable us to showcase our pupils creative achievements on a daily basis.”
