What is Rockerbox News?

Rockerbox News is a dynamic eco-system in which learning is seamlessly triangulated between learner, educator, and parent.

The Rockerbox News platform provides a safe, positive, and self-enclosed environment in which learners create individual profiles, and access fun and bite-sized non-fiction articles that have been curated according to their interests. Rockerbox News articles are written to enhance curriculum learnings and are categorised, and then sub-categorised, by country and theme. A learner’s recall and understanding of their reading is then Knowledge Checked with optional questions. Vocabulary banks, family quizzes, curriculum-complementing resources, and Listen Alouds for aural learning make the tool inclusive of every kind of learner. 

Rockerbox News offers a variety of subscription types for schools, departments within schools, and for home learning. The platform can be accessed across any digital platform or mobile device online or even on the move. Rockerbox News’ personalised approach to learning empowers educators to apply blended learning, facilitate impactful differentiation and targeted interventions, and enables teacher best practice when it comes to home education. From high ability learners to special educational needs such as dyslexia, autism, and attention deficit disorders, as well as visual and hearing impairments, Rockerbox News reduces teacher workload and changes the lives of those who use it.

Rockerbox News is most impactful when used in short, sharp bursts, integrating into (rather than disrupting) daily routines. The platform sparks every learner’s thirst for knowledge (adults included) and used during dedicated reading times, around the table as a family, or as independent screentime that’s educational and fun, Rockerbox News is designed to quickly lead to significant improvements in attainment, literacy, comprehension, vocabulary, global awareness, and confidence.

To further the triangulation of learning, the Rockerbox News system collates a weekly progress and engagement report that is sent to the parent via email. Connected to the report, Rockerbox News recommends resources and activities via a layer of artificial intelligence, and how-to videos that enable the family to further explore, learn, and share on a theme together. A resource portal, with a broad range of comprehension activities and games, is designed and updated by Key Stage 2 educators and will shortly be accessible to parents online.

Further development (expected for completion in November 2021) will allow full connectivity between Rockerbox News at home and in the classroom. This development will allow educators to directly assign personalised, targeted homework tasks and checklists to learners on their home devices, and access detailed progress reports, perfect for internal and Ofsted requirements.
