Learnbylayers covers a whole variety of different educational standards from many countries. As the lessons are fully editable, teachers can personalise the curriculum to their relevant countries science, math and technology standards. Learnbylayers is currently being taught in classrooms around the world including the USA, Australia, Singapore, Netherlands and the UK.
We know how important it is that lessons are clearly referenced to the relevant teaching standards, so we have mapped the curriculum against the UK National Standards, the Australian National Standards and the USA national education standards. The tables below show the relevant UK standards and how the lessons meet the individual standards.
