Day 2 is underway! Go! GB Kids Go!

By lunchtime yesterday, children from across the globe had collectively answered over one million questions! We thought that was pretty amazing until we took a look this morning…over three and a half million questions!

Day 2

This is an awesome achievement and everyone taking part has every reason to feel enormously proud. Of course it is made all the more special as every answer given represents another step a student has made towards mastering a new maths, literacy or language skill!

Whilst we are delighted with our collective performance, it is the accomplishment of individual territories that will determine the overall winner and our little island is ready for the challenge!

Scotland’s Kirknewton Primary School have rolled up their sleeves and are getting down to some serious maths and literacy learning with the added motivation of playing for Team GB!

Kirknewton

We’re really glad to have them on board and making a valuable contribution to Team GB’s score.

We asked Principal Teacher and Skoolbo advocate, Ms Anderson to give us the low-down on why students from Kirknewton are enjoying their learning so much. They are so taken with their Skoolbo avatars, they wanted them shown here!

“Fun For Friends and Family!” Heather

“I think Skoolbo is a great website because it lets you compete around the world!” LukeCameron

“I think skoolbo is great for children because it encourages children to enhance their learning in a fun way. You also get certificates for every 1000 answers you get right. You can add friends but you need to be sitting next to them to do it because you need to put in the other persons code but it only comes up on the other persons screen.” Cameron

“It helps you with all your subjects. This is one good game for adults and one great game for kids! Skoolbo is really good for learning and it is fun. It also helps if you are a little bit competitive because there is a leaderboard for your class, school, region, every school, every class and the whole world! We got to the top of the leaderboard, see if you can climb to the top!” Mia

“It is a good game to challenge yourself and is helping your maths.” Rhiannon

“This is a good app for everyone: Adults, Children, Teachers and it’s fun for toddlers. Fun for friends and Family!” Taylor

Kyle

“I think that Skoolbo is a very fun game to do your maths and languages and we have been first in the leaderboard 1 time it is the best game ever! “ Kyle

“I think Skoolbo is great as it helps you learn and also has lots of variety of games. You can do maths, literacy and languages. Our class were first on the leader board.” Leela

“Skoolbo is an amazing experience as it helps you learn and makes your skills better. Skoolbo is one fun game for adults and one amazing experience for kids Owen

Ella

“This is a good game for alien but a great game for humans. But overall a great game for all kinds and parents can relax with a good safe game.” Ella

“I think Skoolbo is a very good game because you can learn a whole variety of skills like spelling times tables and more!” Callum

“Skoolbo is a great game it makes learning fun! Our class has been the of the leader board and it means that our class plays it a lot and we get smarter every time we play it. 2, on Skoolbo you can play language games, maths games and literacy games it teaches you everything in a fun way.” Elspie

“It’s an amazing game to play for maths, language and spelling (I’ve improved so much!!!)” Heather

“I LOVE SKOOLBO! It is a great game for everyone, every age, anywhere I think that more schools should be using Skoolbo to help children’s learning across the world! (Thank You to Ms Anderson who helped us get involved!)” Beth

We are thrilled to have this wonderful school competing for Team GB!

Team Australia passed the half million mark while we were snoozing and so there’s no time to waste!

3, 2, 1, Go! The World Cup Has Started!

gif 4

The wait is over, the 2016 Skoolbo World Cup has commenced!

Team Australia and Team New Zealand have made a flying start, although the time difference has given them a few more playing hours (as it stands). But it’s only day 1 and we have already surpassed the global one million answer mark! Fantastic!

Day 1

Team GB, this is your chance to gain some ground while they sleep down under! Team USA will be waking up soon so let’s give it our best shot!

Here in the UK, we are lucky to have some schools that rank as ‘big hitters’ when it comes to racking up high scores. The students of Kings Lodge Primary School are Skoolbo veterans and have wasted no time in helping to set the Team GB totaliser whizzing.

Kings Lodge

 

We asked them for an update on how things are going at one of our favourite schools. Here’s what they had to say –

Picture2

“At King’s Lodge, we have enjoyed playing Skoolbo for several years.  We have quite a few champions in our school who have managed massive high scores – and won trophies. Our Year 4 are doing particularly well at the moment.”

“We go on once a week in school and the children then go on it as their homework.  They enjoy really it.”

 

“I enjoy getting messages that tell me how well the children in KLS are doing! Keep it up, Team KLS!”

“It’s really fun.  I play it nearly every day.” Caz

 “I like it because it is a different way of practising.” Mia

“I think it is fun to play and you should play too because it is fun and helps your learning.” Harvey

 

Picture3“I wanted to go on Skoolbo but I was only allowed to go on for 20 minutes; but I got flashing lights and a well done message for breaking a record!” Serenity

“I do my maths every single day; I love it!” Amy

Don’t worry Serenity, our research has show that it only takes 20 minutes on Skoolbo for 94% of children to master a new skill!

Whale Hill Primary School – ClassBo Champions!

Whale hill

A new school year is beginning full of excitement and new opportunities. We hope everyone has enjoyed the summer and is looking forward to the term ahead.

One Skoolbo school ended last year on a high and we’d like to share their success with you. We’re sure that these great students will inspire others to follow their wonderful example.

John Frost is the Computing Leader for Whale Hill and has been busy motivating students to improve their maths, literacy and language skills by rolling out Skoolbo across the school. The teachers are also brilliant at sharing students’ successes across social media which has helped to tell their Skoolbo story as it unfolds.

Year 4 were the first to appear on Twitter, demonstrating just how engaged they are with their learning on the platform –

Year 4 Skoolbo

Each year group had been set a Mega ClassBo Challenge to answer 25,000 maths and literacy questions over a two week period and Year 4 took an early lead –

Whale Hill Twitter 2

The regular Twitter updates revealed some very close competition and Year 2 were also early ClassBo stars –

Whale Hill Twitter

By the end of term all this effort had paid off and not just in terms of the amazing learning progress, Whale Hill Primary School had shot straight to the top of the leaderboard –

Whale Hill leaderboard

And it wasn’t just Whale Hill students who were winners as a result of participating in these ClassBos, WaterAid UK will benefit from every ClassBo successfully completed last term (more to follow).

As you can see from the fabulous comments below, the children are adept at reflecting on their learning and have come up with some great suggestions for developing Skoolbo in the future. We’ll certainly take these ideas on board so thank you!

What do you enjoy most about Skoolbo?

You get to play games and learn at the same time. (Y1)

It looks really good on the iPad. It doesn’t feel like learning but you are. (Y2)

The games are short so you can play for a long time or a short amount of time if you want. (Y4)

Where do you play Skoolbo most? at home, at school, in the car?

Almost half of children in Y2 and Y4 had used it at home including downloading the app. Y3 and Y5 was more than a quarter. All have had the opportunity to use it in school a number of times (Mr Frost)

How has the ClassBo challenge made learning more exciting?

It tells you how many points you have so you want to get more and be better. (Y2)

When the teacher shows us the points you can see your own score and you want to get the most so you play more. (Y3)

You get to see how close you are getting to the target and you only have 2 weeks which makes it feel like a competition. (Y5)

Do you talk to your friends about Skoolbo/ClassBo?

The children have said that they often talk about it with each other in school. More than half in Y4 and Y5 said they had talked about Skoolbo, even if it was to compare points (Mr Frost)

We are always looking for new and exciting things to add to Skoolbo. Do you have any suggestions for us? new lands, new languages, new rewards, new vehicles?

Rockets in space, underwater (on a shark’s back) and on the moon!

How do you feel when you master a new game?

I feel really proud. (Y1)

It makes me want to keep going and do even better. (Y2)

I feel more confident. (Y3)

It makes me feel like I’m good and getting better at maths and English. (Y4)

I want to master more topics and improve further. (Y5)

And here are some comments from the teachers –

It has been wonderful to see the level of enthusiasm for Skoolbo that children across the school have. We thought they would like it but they don’t. They love it.

I have seen children who lack confidence in Maths and English lessons fist-pump the air with pride as they achieve a personal-best score. Children who will easily disengage in lessons have tentatively asked when we will next be able to use Skoolbo in school. Quiet and timid children have flourished with the healthy competition that the year group leaderboard provides.

Furthermore, the opportunity to set targets as a ClassBo challenge has appealed to the children. It has provided them with a specific aim and given an explicit purpose for using Skoolbo as well as enjoyment and learning. The Water Aid focus and the resources provided have helped us as teachers to make cross-curricular links from Geography to Science to PSHCE.

On the last day of the year, the children were allowed to bring in their own toys and games to play. Within an hour, Y4 were asking if they could play on Skoolbo. That they would choose it over free time with their friends and their own toys says more than I could put into words.

Whale Hill Primary School – you are amazing!

Whale Hill map final

“Continuous Improvement towards the very best imaginable”

Top 5 reasons why learning with Skoolbo is FUN

Your child will no doubt be excited about what the new school year will bring. However, moving into a new class can also be overwhelming for children and very tiring for parents. But the fun needn’t stop just because the holidays are over.

Skoolbo provides the perfect way for your child to relax while improving their maths, literacy, and language skills.

How do we know this?

Children have been telling us in their hundreds. We’ve gathered together the fantastic feedback we’ve received from children, including the top 5 reasons for why they love Skoolbo.

It doesn’t feel like learning but you are“. 6 years old.
The games are short so you can play for a long or short time if you want”. 9 years old.
It makes me feel like I’m good and getting better at maths and English“. 10 years old.

Groggan Primary School’s Year 5 are ClassBo Champions!

NI

We’d like to introduce you to the fantastic students of Groggan Primary School in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.

Despite being relative newcomers to Skoolbo they have quickly got to grips with the program to become one of the top performing schools in the region. It was therefore no surprise to find out that these super learners are also very articulate when it comes to describing what they like best about Skoolbo.

Year 5 Teacher and ICT Coordinator Mr Chris Robinson revealed that the sixteen wonderful comments we received from his students represented only a small selection! They were so overwhelmingly positive that we thought we’d use them to create this special word cloud. We think it describes their thoughts perfectly!

Word cloud

And here are some of those comments in full –

“Skoolbo is the best learning game ever”

“I like the way you can personalise it”

“I like the way there are challenges, that way I can see how good I am at my Maths”

“Excellent Graphics”

“It’s great the way you can customise your character”

“ A safe way to play with people all over the country”

“ It can increase our intelligence”

“Skoolbo isn’t just an App for kids to play on, you can learn from it too”

NI 2

Mr Robinson explained more about how he is using Skoolbo in his classroom.

Skoolbo has only been in our school for 4 weeks, but it has made an impressively large impact on the classes in school. It is addictive to play and the customisable aspect engages children of all learning abilities and styles to play.

A ClassBo success story!

As a teacher it is exciting to see children participating at home, this is where we see most of the Skoolbo games happening. I have also used to teacher function to set my class challenges, first of all I set a classbo 5000 challenge, and got 6,500 answers in 48 hours. I then threw caution to the wind and set a 14 day 25,000 correct answer challenge. I was completely blown away by the response, 25,000 correct answers in 6 days!

Quick and easy set-up!

It is one of the easiest administered Apps I have used also, as ICT coordinator, I found the set up quick and easy and the children’s login is also straightforward and accessible to all.

We’d like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to this wonderful school for getting in touch to share their story.

unnamed

Groggan Primary School opened on its current site in June 1936. The school occupies a beautiful rural site on the outskirts of Randalstown. The school has been winner and runner-up of the ‘Best Kept Small School’ in recent years.  Currently the school has 117 pupils in 5 classes.

Principal Mrs Humphrey believes that community plays a big part in Groggan Primary School. They endeavour to hold events when their doors are open and everyone is made welcome. The school staff strive to help pupils discover not how clever they are, but  how they are clever. They help pupils use this to their full potential, regardless of ability,  through a range of experiences both in and outside school.

Llanedeyrn Primary School flying the flag for Welsh Schools!

Welsh Flag

Today we take a trip across the Severn Bridge to meet the wonderful students of Llanedeyrn Primary School in Cardiff. They are one of the top performing schools in Wales and terrific ambassadors for Skoolbo. A quick look at the home page of their website will tell you all you need to know about how far these students are prepared to push themselves to suceed as the photograph of some of them at the 886 metre summit of Pen Y Fan shows.

We have been following their astonishing story of achievement and improvement on Skoolbo as it unfolds and we thought it was about time we met the stars of the show!

image 2

Using tablets, they have made an astounding 31% improvement in Maths and Literacy collectively since starting on Skoolbo and they are showing no signs of slowing down!

image 3

Mr Price has been the driving force behind getting Skoolbo established in the school and he has even made a special Skoolbo widget for the school website!

Website tab

We think this is a great idea as it enables children to quickly sign in and begin learning whether they are at school or home. It’s also helpful for letting parents and carers know where they can register for a parent account so that they can keep track of their child’s progress.

If this isn’t enough, they have made this fabulous video highlighting everything they love about Skoolbo. Here you will see students ‘Zippy Shaking’ and taking part in the 60Sec Slime with Dr Weevil. Both available through the free Teacher App. They also showcase how much they enjoy their Maths and Literacy learning, finishing off with some personal feedback on what they love most about Skoolbo.

“I like using Skoolbo because it is fun and educational” Harvie R – Y5

“I like using Skoolbo because I keep winning!” Sam B – Y4

“Skoolbo is awesome and sometimes there are levels that are hard” Cody S – Y3

“Skoolbo is a challenging game, helps you learn and I enjoy playing it” Jibram – Y4

“I like Skoolbo because it has maths in it so I can challenge my brain and it will help me with my growth mindset.” Sunny M – Y4

“I like Skoolbo because you can earn points and unlock new things if you do good in the game.” Kallum R – Y6

“I like Skoolbo because you can decorate you own house and unlock new and cool things” Chloe S – Y6

This is a wonderful example of both independent and collaborative learning and this feedback from the teachers makes for great reading as well –

“Skoolbo is the best interactive learning game we have ever used in our School. I love the fact the teachers can monitor the children’s progress and set them challenging tasks. The children also love looking at the weekly class reports to see how they did.” Mr A Price

“I love it when the children use Skoolbo in our class. They always want to show me their results and how well they are improving.” Mr L Jenkins 

“We love using Skoolbo in our class. It is a fantastic app!” Miss C Stone

Congratulations to all the amazing students and hard-working staff! You are outstanding!

Digi-Eskwela Project helps raise achievement with Skoolbo!

The Digi-Eskwela Project in the Philippines

Few would disagree that the advent of new technology has the potential to dramatically change educational outcomes for all children. However, children who reside in economically disadvantaged households can still lack access to these vital tools. This is where Skoolbo can help and we are delighted to report on our involvement with a very successful digital learning project in the Philippines called Digi-Eskwela.

IMG_2504

We are very excited by the first set of results that have have come in from the project. The data shows excellent improvement across all areas.

Digi improvement

This data also shows very clearly how increased usage leads to increased improvement. The students from Bitano Elementary School began playing Skoolbo first and have therefore answered more questions resulting in the greatest improvement of the two schools so far.

Tiwala Kids & Communities and The Patatas set up the project with the aim of  increasing access to learning technologies for some of the Philippines most disadvantaged children. It was hoped that this would lead to increased student engagement and academic success. The Patatas donated the hardware needed for the project and Tiwala took responsibility for the implementation of Skoolbo in the chosen schools. The project ran initially from October 2014 to October 2015 and we understand that there is strong desire from everyone involved to extend the project due to its phenomenal success.

Digi-Eskwela involved children from the following school- based urban settings;

  • Legazpi Port Elementary School
  • Bitano Elementary School

Digi2

The schools recommended students most in need of assistance and Tiwala held tablet-based tutorials in the partner schools. Thirty students were accommodated in each class with three thirty-minute Skoolbo sessions per week per child.

Digi3

Of course everyone is delighted with the improvement in essential literacy, numeracy and language skills but these fantastic testimonials from parents, students, and teachers tell us more about the wider benefits of Skoolbo. They reveal increased student engagement in the classrooms and higher motivation to learn at school and at home. The children are really enjoying using both tablets and the Skoolbo platform, which is wonderful!

IMG_4368

“I get motivated in always attending Digi-Eskwela because my scores are getting higher and higher. I not only learn Math, Reading, English but also learn Spanish words.” John Carl, Grade 3, Bitano Elementary School

“I look forward to playing with Skoolbo and using the tablets during my tutorial slot. I enjoy the games and the different environment I get to play in. I love Math and also Spelling.” Danica Sevillano, Grade 4, Bitano Elementary School

“What I like about Skoolbo is I learn new words and also I need to do Math quickly. I also like the rewards I receive when I get perfect score. Also I get to compete with others in the class (duelbo).” Reasty Malangan, Grade 3, Bitano Elementary School

“I find Skoolbo enjoyable because I like the graphics and also the reward system. I also get motivated to continue playing because when I get high points, I earn ‘money’ I can use to ‘buy’ stuff. Also I always get highest scores in Math and Reading.” Mark James, Legazpi Port Elementary School

“I learn new words and I can solve Math problems quicker. I also like that I can race in different worlds, and also I enjoy duelbo and being a superhero when I get high scores.” Mabeth Gonzalez, Legazpi Port Elementary School

The enthusiasm from the children is fantastic and they were not the only ones who loved being involved with the project. The parents expressed gratitude that their children were chosen to be part of the class and reported that their children enjoy attending Digi-Eskwela and playing Skoolbo.

“My child always looks forward to attending Digi-Eskwela because she likes playing with the tablet. I don’t have to remind her about it. She goes to school early in order to attend the class and play tablet games. “ Marilyn Sepato, mother of Mary Joy Sepato

“Lyka comes to school early in the morning even if her class is still in the afternoon because she enjoys playing with the tablet. I am happy that she has a chance to have fun while learning. She is very focused and does not want to get interrupted while playing the games.” Richelda Jebulan, mother of Lyka Jebulan

“I am grateful that my child is enrolled in the class. We are poor so we cannot afford to buy a smartphone or tablet. But through this project, my daughter can play and use a tablet and learn.” Aileen Labanda, mother of Jobel Labanda

The classroom teachers attributed much of the increased classroom participation to being part of the project. The teachers believed that this is because children become increasingly confident as they answer more questions in the game.

“The conduct of Digi-Eskwela in Bitano Elementary School is a big help to the children enrolled in the said project. They show interest and willingness to develop their young minds. They have shown improvement in their Mathematics and English subjects. In behalf of our school, we thank you for choosing Bitano Elementary School as one of your Digi-Eskwela pilot program.” Ms. Teresita Barbante, Bitano Elementary School Teacher

“The pupils, especially the girls, have become more participative and excel more in written work activities. They are also active when asked to do board work exercises. I noticed that their vocabulary skills improved. The could easily understand what the teacher was trying to teach.“ Ms. Margie Boticario, Legazpi Port Elementary School Teacher

“Ylaiza Arnaldo has improved in her decoding skills in reading. I could sense that she’s becoming more confident. She actively participates in classroom activities.” Mrs Marino, Bitano Elementary School Teacher

“Heidi Joyce Esquivel has improved in her reading skills. She is now more eager to read aloud in class. She has also become more confident in participating in class discussions and in spelling words.” Mrs. Teresita Barbante, Bitano Elementary School Teacher

“Bea Yape has shown remarkable improvement. She solves Math problems in class easily and shows improved reading fluency. This quarter she received an achiever merit award for doing well in class.” Mrs. Liezel Marino, Bitano Elementary School Teacher

“Jowella has become very active in class discussions. She participates in doing board work in Math and in read-aloud sessions. Her accuracy in calculations and decoding words have significantly improved.” Mrs. Marino, Bitano Elementary School Teacher

Digi1

The organisers hope to extend the project to involve more children by increasing the number of tablets available. We look forward to writing an update on how the project is progressing in the near future.

‘High five’ to Highfield School, now a SuperSchool!

Banner 1

Answering one million questions on Skoolbo is an outstanding achievement and so we are delighted to welcome the students of Highfield School as our newest SuperSchool.

They join an elite group of 29 UK schools and only 153 schools worldwide!

Highfield

This kind of success doesn’t just happen and we know that reaching this level requires great determination and self-belief on behalf of the students. We’re sure that they have also had wonderful enabling support from some pretty fantastic parents, carers and teachers.

The school motto is ‘Believe we can achieve‘ and it is clear that these fabulous students apply this to everything they do as these terrific photographs and quotes demonstrate.

“It’s absolutely fantastic for learning English and Maths. I love becoming a superhero.” Emily Bate – 10MW

“It’s really fun.” Charlie Clark – 9SC

school44

What a great way to display those well deserved Skoolbo certificates!

Of course learning can only happen in this way if there are wonderful teaching and support staff providing the opportunities. Therefore we are always thrilled to hear from the adults too –

“Skoolbo has been a huge success at Highfield School. Our students have been able to overcome barriers to learning and demonstrate progress that they otherwise would have struggled to show. It has been incredibly effective in engaging our students in their numeracy and literacy learning and lots of our students play and learn at home. My students loved the fact I put in my own avatar so they could compete against me within the game and they took great pleasure in informing me when they had beaten me.” Michael Warren – Head of ICT

It sounds as though the students really enjoy meeting Mr Warren’s avatar in the game!

school3

“Parents have commented on how enjoyable the students find Skoolbo and how nice it is that they are so keen and enthused in learning outside of school.” Sarah Skidmore – Year 7 Form Tutor

“It has been really encouraging to observe the levels of engagement in learning through Skoolbo in our school. Students are proud of their achievements, speak enthusiastically about the challenges and there is healthy competition between class groups to be top of the leader board!” Pat Marshall – Headteacher

It is marvellous that the whole Highfield School community; teachers, students, parents and carers enjoy working together to promote and celebrate learning in this way. It’s little wonder they are so successful.

Congratulations Highfield School and thank you for getting in touch.

school45

The Governors, Staff and Students at Highfield School share the vision to develop an outstanding school to cater for those vulnerable young people with special educational needs who require an environment which nurtures and develops their skills and talents, celebrates their individuality and supports them to become as independent as they can be and prepared for the next stage of their lives.

Student blogger rates Skoolbo!

Today we were thrilled to receive this fantastic endorsement from a young Year 4 blogger who goes by the name of Robin Jnr. It’s wonderful to see students embracing social media in this responsible manner and using it as a tool to share great learning ideas. Of course we just happen to agree with Robin as well!

Thank you Robin!

Netley Students Make it 2 Million!

Not content with becoming one of the first schools in the UK to join the Skoolbo One Million Club, the hard working students of Netley Primary School have joined Eastern Green Junior School, Barclay Primary School and Ark Oval Primary School in exceeding two million answers on the platform!

2 million

We got in contact to congratulate them but it seemed that something had taken the shine off this fabulous achievement. The students were devastated because their treasured Skoolbo Super Champ trophy had recently sprung a leak. Despite some nifty patching up from teacher Gareth Morris it could not be saved and it seemed that celebration assemblies would never be the same.

These wonderful students have been consistently dedicated to their learning with Skoolbo and feature regularly on the UK and World leaderboards. Of course they also helped us with the launch of last year’s London vs New York Challenge and so we made sure that a shiny new trophy was soon winging its way to Camden. Within days we had received this lovely message and photo from Gareth.

“Thank you for the trophy. I’ve just blown it up and as I walked through school several children almost exploded with excitement at seeing a new trophy!!

I’ve included a picture of Bilal who has been using skoolbo an awful lot as a reward for working so hard in class.

bilalskoolbo

We are very pleased to have passed the 2 million answer mark on Skoolbo. Since joining Skoolbo, we have noticed that our children are more engaged at home and eager to talk about and share their achievements with their parents. It has helped children to consolidate their school learning through the fun, engaging and exciting platform games. We celebrate the children’s achievements in a weekly assembly. Certificates are given to the proud Top 5, but the inflatable trophy is what everyone wants to get their hands on!!​ “

Congratulations Bilal and congratulations Netley Primary School!

Netley final

Netley Primary School is a diverse and inclusive school, exuding a warmth and generosity of spirit that comes from happy children and school community. They cater for 430 children, including in the Woodlands, an outstanding resource base unit for children with Autism.

The school’s primary aim is to encourage every child to be curious, creative and challenged. Staff provide stimulating and meaningful lessons, often working with specialists, entrepreneurs and artists to make learning a rich experience.
