• Ark-Hive is an LSIS Leadership with Technology project providing specialist resources for adult learners working at Entry level.
  • Ark-Hive allows users to download specialist learning resources and to share these by uploading them to the website.
  • Ark-Hive allows users to ‘star rate’ resources according to their effectiveness.

Adults who have learning difficulties and very low levels of literacy have difficulty in finding resources that are age appropriate for a range of key learning themes critical for their personal development.
