The Emile range of resources has been developed by a group of teachers, academics and game developers. Together we have developed and supplied games-based learning resources to over 15% of the primary schools in the UK & Ireland.
Our range of resources are all underpinned by robust pedagogical research and are tested rigorously with teachers in real classrooms before launch.
Emile started life as a collaboration between game developers and academics from Manchester Metropolitan University under a Knowledge Transfer Partnership funded by Innovate UK.
The name “Emile” relates to the project initially being about teaching a second language and a subject simultaneously based on the pedagogical approach of “Content Language Integrated Learning” or CLIL. In fact, the word “Emile” is the French equivalent of CLIL.
Emile has quickly expanded into a range of numeracy and literacy resources in response to demand from teachers and schools.
