Established in 1997 by teacher Philip Collie, Schoolzone has now grown to become the UK's busiest educational portal specialising in the development of free educational search engines for teachers and consultancy services for the commercial sector such as research, development and advertising.
The overriding ethos of the site is to assist and inform teachers through provision of specialised educational search engines together with peer group reviews and evaluations of content and it is for this reason that we support NAACE as a sponsor.
In 2003 Schoolzone was awarded a DfES contract to commission classroom based evaluations of digital content for Curriculum Online and trained over 300 teachers as content evaluators.
This team of classroom based, teacher specialists has now expanded to a community of over 1000 working with the commercial and public sector on research and evaluation projects
