More and more teachers are using Skoolbo to set homework for their students. Playing Skoolbo at home is a great way to motivate and engage children in their learning activities. The same student login works at school and home, so it’s never been more fun to do homework!kids_skoolbo_homework-2

Skoolbo has been designed with a smart spiral learning algorithm, meaning that the questions in the game adapt to the students ability, guiding them to improve their skills. This is a major advantage when playing from home, as it means that students can learn effectively without too much direction. You can rely on Skoolbo to steadily increase difficulty level as the students master topics.

Alternatively, teachers have the option to use the curriculum setting in Skoolbo, giving teachers full control of what to assign as homework for their students. The Set Task feature helps you to decide what topics you want students to play in their next Skoolbo sessions. Once they have played these set tasks, the Skoolbo algorithm kicks back in, continuing to provide relevant games for your students.

What teachers have had to say about using Skoolbo for homework

“Skoolbo is a great app that students can use for homework. The tasks are targeted, relevant and help to support our students’ literacy and numeracy needs. Skoolbo is a valuable program for us because of the Smart Algorithm that targets students at their area of understanding and need. This is very important to us, as we are committed to teaching students to their personal goals and their level of understanding.”

– Janis M – Truganina South Primary School Answered 3,693,529 questions, average core skills improvement 46%

“If Skoolbo is to succeed it needs to be part of the structure of the school wide learning, as kids get older they use it independently because of the fun element and parents are happy to see a safe way of doing homework.”

– Carmel N – St Clare’s Primary School Answered 1,440,034 questions, average core skills improvement 39%

“Students love this and parents are using this at home too. It has become a school wide dance”

– P Street – Dale Christian School – Answered 1,217,920 questions, average core skills improvement 47%

Planning a trip with the kids? Whether it’s a trip overseas or a road trip around the country – Skoolbo is a great way to keep your children entertained and learning at the same time!

With the dreaded summer slide threatening our children’s learning progress during the summer break, Skoolbo’s educational game based learning has many in-game features perfect for any holiday – making learning fun! The aim is to fill up those ‘in-between’ times – plane rides, car rides, your downtime in the hotel – with something worthwhile for your child.

Smart Spiral Learning Algorithm

Skoolbo has been designed with a smart spiral learning algorithm, meaning that the questions in the game adapt to the children’s ability, guiding them to improve their skills. This is a major advantage when playing from home away from school, as it means that students can learn effectively without too much direction. You can rely on Skoolbo to steadily increase the difficulty level as your kids master topics.

Language Dragons – learn a new language
