spellings software for schools

Spellings Software

Turn ‘look-cover-write-check’ into a fun, interactive experience for pupils. Either use a preloaded list or quickly create your own custom versions.

A fun and interactive way to get pupils practising their spellings.

How does the Spellings Module work?

The Spellings Module allows you to create fantastic spelling lists in minutes which you can share with your class straight away or at a later date. Either choose from our pre-made lists of dozens of curriculum-focussed tests or create your own. Custom lists can be created for your learners, customised to each child’s ability.

Using the innovative look-cover-write-check method to assess your students gives them the opportunity to learn both spelling and typing skills. Additionally, for accessibility purposes, audio tests are available for words in pre-made tests.

How does the Spelling Module benefit learners?

Spelling tests can be accessed from anywhere at any time, and on any device. One of the best features of the module is its tracking feature – you can set the same test multiple times and track a pupil’s progress over the course of a year, or compare them with their peers. The BrainTrain feature lets you see which words are most commonly misspelled and even lets you take these to create new, more challenging tests.

blog for schools

Blog

Help your children develop their confidence and self-expression.

Blogging is one of the most engaging and rewarding activities that children can do online. It is a fantastic way to develop reading and writing skills, promote peer learning and encourage open reflection on something newly learnt.

What does the Blog App do?

The Blog App is activated under your School Jotter account. Blog posts can be created and shared within the app or published directly to your school website. You might decide to set a blog topic for your class or ask students to keep a weekly log of their learning. Posts can be submitted for you to check and approve before publication. Pupils may be allowed to share or comment on blog posts once they have been published, enhancing the collaborative learning experience.

What are the key features of the Blog App?

The Blog App has a number of features to keep children safe online. Blog posts can be created within the app and shared only with a preselected group of people. As a teacher, you will retain control over the content created with a bad word filter notifying you if anyone is using the app inappropriately. By writing and sharing with others, pupils will learn to use the technology responsibly and gain an awareness of e-safety.

Integrate School Jotter with SIMS and take advantage of powerful time-saving features

  • Easily manage data in the Broadcast app
  • Quickly deal with student groups in Portfolio and Learn

forum module

Forum Module

The Forum Module provides a safe environment for pupils to engage in an online discussion around a set topic or question.

How does the Forum Module work?

The Forum Module allows you to set open conversations for your students. These can be used to assess pupil understanding of a topic and get thoughts and responses from everybody; something that isn’t always easy to achieve in the classroom. Forums are a great way to kick off any new topic or collect feedback on a recent assignment. They can be accessed from anywhere, making them ideal for homework that involves group work and interaction.

What are the key benefits of the Forum Module?

Discussions and peer learning are a key part of school life. The Resources App brings this process online, building pupil confidence by giving everyone the opportunity to contribute and chance to ‘think before they speak’ – ideal for helping quieter students to find their voice in a big group. The Forum App is also a great tool for teaching online etiquette, making sure everybody gets the chance to share and learn together.

merits

Merits

Introducing the online rewards system that incentivises outstanding achievement…

The Merits module is an online rewards system like no other. It allows you to make learning fun – at the same time tracking progress and achievements.

What does Merits App do?

Every child that uses Merits App is given an avatar, or character, that represents them on the system. Each time they complete an outstanding piece of work, behave well in class or pass a test, you can award them ‘merits,’ the Merits App currency. They can use these merits to purchase accessories for their avatar, or donate to charity.

What else can it do?

Merits App creates a record of each child’s achievement. Using the in-built results tracking, see where they have worked hard, which tests they have passed and how many merits they have earned. For bad behaviour, you can remove points too. In terms of your Pupil Premium allocation, progress and attainment reporting is perfect for providing the evidence that Ofsted require.

How does it benefit learning?

Awarding merits for good work means learning is incentivised. Children can use the merits they have earned in the online Merits App store – which sells a plethora of extra clothes and accessories for their avatar. They can even donate to charity – meaning children can learn the value of money AND become more socially aware! Because attainment can be evidenced, you can see at-a-glance which children need to improve -and where.

Learn

Learning sites: A brand new way to inspire learners and improve quality of teaching…

Learn App is part of a new suite of apps available from Webanywhere. The full Jotter Suite means your school’s website can be fully integrated with all your e-learning in one location.

What does Learn App do?

Learn App is a brand new way to inspire learners and improve quality of teaching. It allows you to build learning sites – a whole online area, like a website, than you can create for a specific subject, a set piece of homework or a coursework topic. Upload text, pictures, videos, links, scrolling text and more.

What makes Learn App different to a VLE?

Sites can be created in minutes, requiring very little technical ability. As Learn App integrates with your website, and our other new apps, files and resources can be stored in one central place – making finding and adding content easier. Plus, if you already use School Jotter for your school’s website, you’ll find Learn App very familiar as the way you create pages and add content is the same.

What else can it do?

Via the Resources app – which comes with Learn App – you can upload, download and share resources with other staff and other schools. Self-marking tests can be created, just like with our VLE, Learnanywhere. A range of themes means you can customise your learning sites to reflect different topics, classes or events.
