Review of Pobble

Mar 2020

As already stated, Pobble motivates children who strive to become published authors. They are recognised and feel accomplishment when they are and this has a knock on affect with other children. The new developments in the platform are another added bonus for teachers who are able to use it to build lessons that are exciting and challenging for children, whilst reducing teachers’ workload.

Vinny Turner found Pobble:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    Children’s motivation to want to write for the platform and become published authors with their work recognised by others has demonstrated that to all in school. Children want to attain a certain standard, as they understand their efforts will be recognised by others.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    All children, regardless of attainment levels are striving for their work to be published on the platform. Lower attaining children use examples of other children’s work to ‘level up’ their own writing and this clearly benefits them in their independent work too.
  • Significantly improves teaching efficiency and productivity
    The lesson builder and option to pull in various resources from the platform has ensured that teacher workload is reduced and they are able to plan great lessons as a result.
  • Significantly reduces teacher workload
    It is enabling staff to build lessons and prepare work using the one platform.
  • Moderately improves teacher knowledge and skills
    Teacher knowledge is already very good within our school, but Pobble has helped with NQTs and recently qualified teachers in supporting their development.
