What is DoodleLearning?

DoodleLearning offer four digital learning programmes for ages 4-14: DoodleMaths, DoodleEnglish, DoodleTables and DoodleSpell.

Created by teachers, for teachers, they’re designed to boost confidence and ability in maths and English — and reduce staff workloads!

Benefits for teachers:

  • Doodle creates every child a unique learning experience that automatically fills their gaps and tops up knowledge, helping them stay on track in school
  • Staff can instantly set work in any area of the curriculum for use as a pre-teaching, consolidation, intervention or homework tool, reducing their workload (and saving queues for the printer!)
  • Doodle automatically marks work and highlights each pupil’s learning gaps in an online hub, making it easy to offer additional support where needed
  • It provides instantly exportable data including the % of EoY objectives covered, helping with teacher handovers, PPMs, report writing and lesson planning

Benefits for pupils:

  • Doodle is filled with thousands of fun, interactive exercises, bringing the curriculum to life and reducing any anxieties they may have about maths and English
  • It sets work at just the right level for each child, letting them work independently at a pace that’s right for them
  • It rewards effort over ability, letting all pupils experience ongoing success and work alongside their peers on equal footing
  • In-app accessibility options, including audio dictation, hints and coloured overlays, empower children to learn anytime, anywhere

Recommended Usage

Doodle is designed to be used for 10 minutes a day, or ‘little and often’, using Doodle in this way has been proven by the University of Bath to raise attainment and reduce learning loss.

Although an expensive resource for schools, it is an invaluable tool for intervention and ensuring that all pupils are able to focus on their individual areas for development.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Olivia, thanks for your review! I'm so pleased that Doodle is proving to be an invaluable tool to support your teaching - Katherine, your School Success Advisor
Olivia found DoodleLearning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    DoodleMaths allows teachers to quickly set homework tailored to a range of individual pupils with assurance of quality and links to explanations.

Doodle has been a great resource for both teachers and pupils. The support team are always on hand to help and Doodle makes learning fun for all.

Reply from DoodleLearning:What an amazing review, thank you so much Emily! I'm so pleased that Doodle is having such a positive impact at your school - Katherine, your School Success Advisor
Emily Brewerton found DoodleLearning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Teachers are able to set assignments to develop Pre/Post-teaching, fill gaps in learning, assess understanding, fulfil interventions, engage parents in pupil learning, increase participation in Home learning, engage pupils during school closures and Doodle gives pupils ownership of their own learning journey.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Doodle analyses tasks for you, if you've set an assignment (preview the questions to meet your needs) to retrieve/assess knowledge and all children are accessing the task, you may be able to recap or create a starter activity from that and progress knowledge further/review steps within the learning journey and adapt the level of challenge.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    Parents are encouraged to link to their child/childrens accounts - enabling them to see the progress, levels of activity, assignments, competitions and rewards. Parents are keen to discuss home learning and how effective Doodles have been in supporting their own subject knowledge as well as enabling them to support pupil progress.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    We are able to track progress and can link Doodle participation to attainment in school. We have Greater Depth children on 1334 day streaks as they commit to their education. We reward Daily Doodlers and Doodlers of the Week, promoting its benefits.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Children are able to use their prior knowledge and state "I know this, I've done it on Doodle." Children are remembering more, able to retrieve prior DoodleLearning and apply it in lessons.

It is good on occasion. I love how it has progress my children however I wish the games were not on the doodle app. I have to stand over my children to ensure they are actually doing the work and not the games. This has also happened in school. The tables can't be reset which is a pain as having done an in class bench mark it is clear the Lerners do not know their tables. It should allow the educator/parent to reset annual so they are tested again on tables.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Richie, thanks for taking the time to complete a review for us. It's lovely to hear how well your boys are getting on with Doodle and I'm going to reach out to you directly with some support with regard to games and instructions on how you can reset tables for your students - Katherine, your School Success Advisor
Richie found DoodleLearning:
  • Does not reduce teacher workload
    We only use this as a homework activity. We do not use as an in class tool.
  • Does not improve teaching efficiency
    None
  • Does not improve parent engagement
    Across the school we do not have a high usage which of course for younger years is the parents not assisting in encouraging the learners to complete it.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    Those that use it, it does. I started using this before my school did and it has worked wonders my my adopted boys.
  • Slightly builds student knowledge
    Some of the questions are a little obscure and confuses learners (even in my year 6 class) as it is not SATS style.

I am pleased with the impact that Doodle has had within our school so far. We're still working towards embedding it into daily routines and we look forward to continuing to use it in term two.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Francine and thank you so much for leaving us a review. I'm delighted that Doodle is having such a positive impact within your school so far. I also used to use it within my teaching for lesson starters and interventions when I was a Doodle Champion. I look forward to hearing more about your daily Doodling! Ian, your School Success Advisor
Francine Keown found DoodleLearning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Doodle can be useful in providing starters, homework and targeted interventions.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Teachers can be more efficient in clearly seeing areas of misconception or particular questions that several students do not understand yet.
  • Slightly improves parent engagement
    Some parents commented on Doodle making an impact on their child's learning at home.
  • Slightly improves attainment

The children enjoy Doodle - they love the advent calendar and the real Doodle badges that they receive for completing challenges. Parents like that they can see progress their child is making and it is a manageable resource for them to use at home.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Leanne and thank you so much for leaving us such a wonderful review! I loved the Winter Calendar too! It's fantastic to see how well you are using Doodle across your school and the positive impact it is having on teaching and learning. Amazing! – Ian, your School Success Advisor
Leanne found DoodleLearning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Teachers use Doodle to set homework - Doodle marks and provides feedback to the children so that the teachers don't have to. The teachers can then review how their class is doing when they log in. Doodle also provides personalised learning to all of the children in the class and can be used to provide support or extension work during lesson time - less prep for the teachers.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Setting up homework is fast and easy - without the need for printing, copying and sticking in multiple sheets per child for every class. Using Doodle as morning starter work or extension work is again much more time efficient than copying work. The work is always at the correct level for the child moving them on when needed - making this easy for the teachers to review.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    We have held in person Doodle meetings for our Reception parents and have found higher parental involvement. We have done this for the last couple of years and many of the parents that attended still ensure their child Doodles at home frequently. Parents contact me with any issues and they are sorted quickly by myself or Doodle giving us and the parent confidence with the online platform.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    It is usually clear to class teachers which children are Doodling regularly (particularly in Maths) as they are able to recall subject knowledge quickly in class. They are used to practicing their maths skills and don't need as many reminders of strategies in the classroom. Those that Doodle regularly also appear more confident when discussing their skills.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Doodle helps with retention of knowledge so that the children's brains store the information in long term memory so that it can be recalled with ease. Doodle New bubbles explain new topics clearly and the help tools provide support for the children at all times - making them more confident using the platform.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Thanks so much for your review, Jess! It's lovely to hear that your students love Doodle and that parents are involved, too! Meg, your School Success Advisor
Jessica found DoodleLearning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It gives children an independent, useful task to be doing whilst you can individually support other children. It's good to set for homework.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    It gives a good assessment guide for individual children, they are individual programmes so there's no need to set new work/move children on.
  • Slightly improves parent engagement
    Parents are involved in Doodle and can link their account so they can talk about Doodle and what the children are doing. They can see the expectations of the year's curriculum.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Children have the chance to complete some prior learning on topics they haven't yet covered, they get to practise skills they need more time on as the programme responds to their individual learning needs.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Pupils get the chance to work on topics before they are taught in class which can improve their knowledge as they already have a starting point so can deepen their knowledge/understanding. Lots of practise of the maths skills helps improve student knowledge.

I think Doodle is a powerful tool that is simple and easy to use. It creates a program that is different for every child depending on their own level and knowledge. It also has hints, explanations to give before a child puts it as a tricky question.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Elisa and thank you for your review. I'm delighted that Doodle is so easy to use and helps to personalise learning for the children. Ian, your Doodle School Success Advisor
Elisa Pearlman found DoodleLearning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    We give less homework on paper and require them to doodle at least 5 times a week.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    I can set assignments to test the knowledge of what we have learnt in class that week.
  • Does not significantly improve parent engagement
    As I understand it, parents should not help the children with their doodle learning so that it is a true test on what the child knows. I encourage some of my students who struggle with keeping up with Doodle to show their parents when they are in the green zone!
  • Significantly improves attainment
    The program is designed for each individual and asks questions to the ability they are currently working on. It decreases and increases the level according to the child's answers.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Doodle can ask a wide of questions that are either holes in a child's learning or on material that isn't being learnt currently in class. It also asks questions in a different way to test transference of knowledge.

We absolutely LOVE Doodle at our school- The children love it and so do the staff- It's a programme that most of our children access independently that plugs gaps in learning whilst they are having fun! Every school should use it!

Reply from DoodleLearning:What an amazing review, thanks Sam! I always used Doodle as a 10 minute task at the start of the day for my class too, so it's great to hear that's also working well for your students! - Katherine, your School Success Advisor
Sam found DoodleLearning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    At our school, children complete a ' Ten Minute Task' when they arrive at school every day. Some of our children struggle to access this fully so, instead of the teachers setting more than one task (causes more work for them) it is an ideal opportunity for our children who have Doodle to get busy and access their learning and it sets them up for the day.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    We find Doodle fills those gaps in our children's learning so our children can keep up better with day to day lessons
  • Slightly improves parent engagement
    Children at our school only access Doodle in school - Parents are aware of the programme but generally do not see Doodle in action.
  • Significantly improves attainment

I am really happy with the program. It is comprehensive, accessible and engaging.

Robin Smith found DoodleLearning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    Easy to set individualised homework assignments. Easy to consolidate learning and assess understanding from lessons taught in class. Can be used as alternative to marking.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    Good for use when children require additional fluency. Helps us to target children’s gaps in understanding.
  • Does not significantly improve parent engagement
    Not much uptake in parent accounts. Some evidence of children being encouraged at home to keep up streaks.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Majority of children have significantly engaged with it at are progressing through the curriculum rapidly. One child has already covered close to 1 year’s worth of curriculum content. Weekly awards and progress awards for landmark stars totals helps with engagement and attainment.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Doodle supports classroom teaching beautifully.

Louise Webb found DoodleLearning:
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Able to set assignments linked to topics and see a snapshot of children's understanding in different areas.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    being able to access relevant maths activities suited to the ability of each child. Using it for homework.
  • Significantly improves parent engagement
    Parents have given us positive feedback regarding how their children enjoy the activities. They have seen improvement. They can see what level their children are working at in maths. Parents are encouraging their children to access Doodle Maths.
  • Slightly improves attainment
    I can see that the constant revisiting of maths concepts is helping higher understanding rather than leaving gaps between topics. It is a constant revision of things covered.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The new learning is useful to introduce new topics at a level suited to each child. It may introduce new topics that they won't yet cover in school. Setting assignments is a good way of reinforcing topics covered during previous weeks.

It is a great platform that provides personalised learning for all. It significantly reduces teacher workload and provides assessment data that can inform teaching and targeted interventions quickly. in addition, the digital nature allows for less paper and promotes home school engagement.

Reply from DoodleLearning:Hi Tom and thank you so much for leaving us a review. I'm delighted that Doodle reduces teacher workload and informs teaching and interventions. We are always trying to save teachers time and help to impact learning. Ian, your School Success Advisor
Tom Lloyd found DoodleLearning:
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    We use doodle as a teaching platform to aid delivery of lessons, but it is also our whole school homework provision.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    The programs are individual to each learner and is therefore efficient in differentiating content and ensuring personalised learning for all students. The data and trackability of student outcomes also helps to create a fuller picture of each learner and can be easily used to provide targeted interventions as required.
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Parents are encouraged to link their accounts to their child's and this ensures that there is transparency between all stakeholders. This allows the parents to be informed on progress as well as giving them the opportunity to identify gaps they can also address at home.
  • Significantly improves attainment
    It is clear that children who regularly use the platform have greater security in their termly assessment as well as the more frequent quizzes that take place during term time.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    The students ability to retain information about all strands of the curriculum is improved, as the platform sends questions to students in a broad approach. This makes students better equipped to make links form their doodle experience to the teaching that takes place in the classroom. This retrieval element has been hugely beneficial to pupil progress and confidence.

Andy Ballance found DoodleLearning:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Very easy for homework that you know will be closely matched to the pupils specific areas of weakness in maths.
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency
    Pupils' Doodle Age ( if they use the programme regularly) seems to be an accurate assessment of their maths ability. This information can easily be used to help identify who needs an in-person intervention.
  • Moderately improves parent engagement
    Parents are able to set up a parents account if they wish and can then monitor their child's progress.
  • Moderately improves attainment
    The 'Little and Often' approach helps pupils to revise mathematical concepts evenly throughout the year.
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    The programme can help to ensure that gaps in prior learning are addressed. This then means they can access lessons for their age group more effectively.
