Doddle Case Studies
See how Doddle is supporting effective and engaged learning in schools like yours.
Our old planners were cumbersome, frustrating and were forgotten or lost very often. Students were meant to get them out at the start of each lesson, but invariably did not do so. Even for the students who remembered their planner, some of the instructions were quite long because it’s never as simple as “do the worksheet”, is it?
At New Directions the skill statements were being used in our vocational subjects, but they didn’t have any bearing on intervention, tracking and monitoring. We knew they were going to play a big part in monitoring student progress, but we didn’t have the framework to make it work. There was no platform on which to record this information so this is where Doddle was introduced, and it took off.
The great thing about the Doddle self-marking quizzes is that they also provide instant question by question feedback to students. As a teacher, I therefore know that my students are receiving praise when they get something right, and instant intervention when they’re not quite there yet. That’s even higher quality feedback than I can give my students in person because there’s only one of me and 30 of them!
This year Baxter College set its sights on improving attainment by promoting independent learning.
The results have been remarkable and they have observed a real growth in proactive, motivated learners as a result.
Within the Geography department, we started using Doddle as the basis of our KS3 homework. It provides an extensive range of resources, including self-marking quizzes which we felt was a real time saver and reduced our workload. What’s more, the quizzes linked in well with our curriculum and not only challenged students but also supported what they had learnt within class.
Doddle’s Spanish resources have been integral in supporting the learning of our students at St Paul’s.
Embedding Doddle into our Spanish department has given me the chance to monitor students’ homework, as well as their learning outside the classroom. I can continually check their progress and engagement during the term. It is also useful when revising and preparing for exams.
We are partnered with many schools around the UK.
