Doddle Case Studies
See how Doddle is supporting effective and engaged learning in schools like yours.
In starting my new role as Director of Science at Benton Park School, I felt it was important to introduce something that could clearly have a positive impact for the students. At Benton Park we use Doddle as the main platform for homework setting, using the pre-made quizzes as low-stakes testing to help improve knowledge retrieval and retention.
Students need knowledge to build more knowledge.
Spacing and retrieval are some of the two best things we should be using, and while some teachers are aware of it, they aren’t always aware of how they could use it and how easy it is to do.
Over the past few years, we have tried a number of different online learning platforms to support our learners’ revision and manage teachers’ workload.
None have ticked enough of the boxes at Highfields to warrant us continuing to fund the resource until now.
At the Polygon School, we have had a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) since 2012 and it has grown to be an invaluable resource that adds to the quality of teaching offered at our school.
Doddle is the next level of VLE because it is a quick, easy and personalised system that works for students, teachers and senior leaders.
I came to my role as Vice Principal for Teaching & Learning at a time of significant change to the curriculum and the impact it has made on teacher and student workload.
In light of more terminally assessed linear exams, I had to urgently address students taking greater responsibility for their own knowledge and enable targeted, effective homework and revision.
At Pool Hayes Academy, music teacher Alex Hodges has been using Doddle to embed a new approach to assessment in music. Alex has been RAG (red, amber, green) rating individual skill statements to track students’ strengths and weaknesses each lesson and giving her students the opportunity and incentive to make meaningful progress.
We are partnered with many schools around the UK.
