NTK won two Awards during the prestigious eFestival 2012!
NTK's iBooks (in cooperation with the Teachers' Training College of Eger) won first prize in the Education/Learning category. NTK launched its iBooks for iPad project in April 2012. This project allows for the first time in Hungary, to teach primary school students by a new teaching method based on tablet and interactive contents, designed specifically for that new device. As part of the project, NTK adapted almost the full grade 8 curriculum to iBooks format.
NTK also won the third prize in the Mobile Application/Education category for its MyMobileQuiz application. It enables users to test their knowledge at home, sitting on the bus or even hanging out in the park. The diversity of questions and multimedia elements attached to them make users able to measure what they know about different subjects. They can mark their favourite questions or practice with complex tests, generated personally for their needs. The App is now available for Biology on Android and Win7 Phone in the Hungarian and Russian language.”
