“None of the problems we face are insurmountable, but when they’re put together, it becomes a bit more challenging.” In our latest case study, David Williams, Biology Coordinator at the British School of Kuwait, discusses how Doddle has helped to reduce teacher workload and increase student engagement.
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.

Whilst there have been many successes in closing the gap between the attainment of Pupil Premium students and their peers over recent years, as educators we still have a long way to go.
Teacher Helen Smith explains how she has used Doddle to engage, raise aspirations and improve attitudes to learning – key barriers standing in the way of PP attainment in her classes.
In their recent Ofsted inspection Tunmarsh School and New Directions, of Newham Pupil Referral Units, got ‘outstanding’ feedback thanks, in part, to their excellent use of Doddle for monitoring and driving pupil progress.
We interviewed Deputy Head Elgan Prosser, and Assistant Head Patricia Andrews, about how they met the new, stricter Ofsted requirements, while engaging students with their learning and supporting their transfer back into mainstream.
When speaking to science departments about teaching the new GCSE specifications, I always hear the same question: “where do we find the time?”. Not only has the volume of content to deliver increased, but exams now place a greater emphasis on testing knowledge application. Without changing the status quo of the course delivery, departments will increasingly find that time for consolidation and practising application will simply run out.
Doddle has made setting homework easier, we have made a financial saving by using it and it has meant that we can focus more on teaching and learning in the classroom. It is a very user-friendly system for setting homework and the quality of resources on Doddle are really, really good.
