How It Works

Children wearing now>press>play headphones laugh as they stretch their hands out in front of them, acting out a story.

What is now>press>play?

now>press>play is an immersive audio resource that engages primary school children in the curriculum through emotion, imagination and movement.

In a now>press>play Experience every child is given a pair of wireless headphones. Immersed in sound, they become the main character in a story, meeting people, discovering places and solving problems on an educational adventure they’ll never forget.

now>press>play can be used as a whole class activity or with smaller groups for intervention work. It is a fun and inclusive way to engage children in the curriculum.
