Has so many capabilities, which is constantly growing. It does take you more time initially to explore, discover and get used to what it can do. We have used links on instagram of others shared ideas too

Reply from Widgit :Dear Loise, many thanks for your review it's great to see that you're getting value from many of the ready made resources our Education team create for the benefit of schools. Our social media community is always a great way to find new ideas and to see how others are using our symbols. If your school ever needs additional training to maximise your understanding and use please do just let us know, we'd be happy to support.
Loise found Widgit :
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    Once explored and familiar with what it can offer the impact on workload is more significant as many resources are either already prepared or made easier to make than previously. Support with differentiation and work that is accessible to all children is vastly supported using Widgit.
  • Moderately reduces attainment gap
    One of our 1:1 TAs has used Widgit to create personalised learning opportunities for the child she is supporting. This is both actual lessons and/ or tools to help him access the learning. Since doing this he is accessing more of his learning than he had done previously, is communicating more readily and is showing bigger steps of progress.
  • Slightly improves teaching efficiency
    It helps with differentiation and planning ahead for children who need additional visual prompts
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Support for regulation scales, reward charts, etc. Complements and adds to our behaviour and well being practice
  • Moderately improves attainment
    Attainment is enhanced by the support Widgit provides in helping children access learning
