10 would have been given if it had the function of printing of data reports easily, and being able to share data with parents mor efficently. However, this is a superb programme that enable stsudents to develop their literacy skills and can be used in order to differentiate according to the their ability and what they need to improve on. I also love the fact that they can be set missions again and again and this can show how far they have improved on that mission.

Charmain Hull found LiteracyPlanet:
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Less marking, as missions are self marking, time freed up to have discussion with students regarding progress etc., lesson planning reduced.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency
    Able to accurately track student progress, quick setting of lessons for all classes if needed. Allows staff the time needed to ensure students are doing the programme correctly.
  • Slightly improves school processes
    Have yet to use the programme to the point where it begins to have an impact on school processes, at the moment it is only being used within the English department.
  • Slightly improves parent engagement
    Neutral as we have not rolled our the parental engagement of the programme as yet. Though I do feel Lietracy Planet should have a parental portal that shows parentstheir childs data.
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Build upon, practice or develop their knowledge on all elements of grammar and spelling significantly.

It provides a wide range of English activities which is amazing. Once the activities are set, the children can login and play straight away. The activities are marked which makes the work load easier for teachers. Different activities can be set for different children without them knowing what year group they are working at. The data provided is really useful. I really like that a mission is automatically reassigned if a child does not pass it. Spelling lists can be made which is a great way for the children to practise them each week. An area of improvement would be, I find it difficult to know what activities have already been set - at the moment you need to click on the activity and see if a child has completed it yet or not. It would be easier if the activities had a tick next to them if they have already been set for the children or completed.

Samantha Moore found Literacy Planet:
  • Significantly builds student knowledge
    Grammar activities, comprehension and spelling games
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    It helps to consolidate a grammar objective after the English lesson.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    It has been great for Spelling practise. The children are keen to practise and learn their new words on LiteracyPlanet.
  • Moderately improves school processes
    It provides individual data on each child's area of learning in English. Teachers can use this data to help them make a judgement of where a child is and gaps in their learning.

Activities and lessons are difficult to find in each strand as they are all in a bit list. It would be helpful if they were categorised further either by CfE code, alphabetical or some other way of organising them to help find what you are looking for more quickly.

Andrew found Literacy Planet:
  • Moderately builds student knowledge
    Grammar work is very extensive and well explained.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Instant data on pupil performance is excellent for assessment and planning next steps for individuals, groups and the class as a whole.

    Ready made lessons and activities with no marking.

    Still looking at this area.

Kevin Okonji found Literacy Planet:

    It reinforces lessons taught and gets learners to consciously revisit, review and reflect on lessons
  • Moderately improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    Creating your custom spelling list helps dyslexic learners to stimulate interests and concentrate on spellings

The reason being that it is not like other online modules which have no connection with the school's course books. Here the school can customize the modules as per their own board and course material. So teachers do not have to work extra.
