The Olive Tree Primary, Bolton UK becomes the Worldwide Training Hub for Hologo AR

The Olive Tree Primary School, Bolton, UK Co-founded by Abdul Chohan has been working with Hologo to develop learning experiences that were previously impossible to achieve.

Abdul Chohan has been a pioneer of mobile learning and his work has been well documented through keynotes and case studies at his first school, Essa Academy, Bolton, UK.

The Olive Tree is a school that he has co-founded and is deeply integrated through the use of mobile technology. The school serves a low socio-economic community yet has been classed as a ‘Outstanding’ School by the UK government inspectorate. The school has also been recognised as a Apple Distinguished School for its successful integration of pedagogy and technology.

Teachers at the school are trained on a weekly basis to ensure that children from the local community get a world class learning experience.

Hologo has partnered with the The Olive Tree and has been working closely with Abdul Chohan to ensure that the augmented reality experiences are founded on sound pedagogical practice. The collaboration also allows the team at Hologo to set priority for the next stage of development.

Our vision for education is very much aligned with The Olive Tree Primary School in that we endeavour to change the beliefs to a ‘Believe You Can’ approach.

Having visited The Olive Tree Primary School in Bolton, UK, the Hologo team has been working very hard to bring amazing new experiences that go beyond a traditional textbook experience.

This is just the beginning of the journey and we hope together with The Olive Tree we will be able to create new learning experiences that allow teachers and students to use technology in a manner that was just not possible in the past.
