Suzanne Rudkin, Head of Maths and Year 6 Form Teacher: It's great but hard work to keep up the interest. Pupils who are regular doodlers are more engaged in class.
Tom Peace, Class teacher & Mathematics Subject Leader: it is a really easy to use programme and it engages the pupils instantly. I think it still has issues in challenging your most able learners and the baseline assessment algorithm can be a bit haphazard but in all, we like it.
Justin O'Reilly, Head of Maths: The app is meaningful, focussed and aimed at the right level for each individual child. Fantastic.

Children can download all of the Doodle programmes onto a mobile or tablet device from the App Store, Google Play or the Amazon Store, so no computers or laptops are necessary. These apps can be used offline, making them ideal for use in school or at home.

Browser versions of the programmes are also available to access from a laptop or desktop.

Teachers can use the Teacher Dashboard, an online hub that tracks pupil progress, on a laptop or desktop. DoodleLearning supports staff in generating pupil usernames, or schools can create these themselves.

Parents can also access the Parent Dashboard online from a laptop or desktop, and download the free DoodleConnect app from the App Store, Google Play or the Amazon Store.
