About the digital learning environment
The material is presented in the Lin Education’s digital platform Loops. Here you will find facts presented in various multimedia formats together with a wide range of activities. If you will be the material within a school context there is also suggestions on how you can work with different subjects to create cross-curricular activities. Do note that you do NOT submit anything in Loops, the activities suggested there is for you to work with outside the platform. If you are interested in using Loops in a more interactive way where you work with the activities answering or handing in your answers directly in the digital environment or if you want to use Loops within your own organisation you may contact Lin Education here.
