Questions for Learning:
Here at LEB Partnership, we are developing a range of software programmes to work in conjunction with Promethean’s ActivExpression Learner Response System.
This improves the efficiency of learning as:
- All pupils can answer the questions at their own pace;
- Pupils will receive feedback on incorrect answers, the questions for which will then be resent;
- The teacher gets instant feedback for each pupil as the questions are being run, enabling them to make immediate intervention where necessary;
- Recent studies by the Institute of Effective Education at York University have shown that if a pupil is given immediate feedback, their learning increases by thirty percent.

Improve literacy across the curriculum with ‘Subject Specific Spellings and Meanings’. In this flipchart, which covers 12 subjects, the meanings of words are sent to the pupils’ handsets, and the pupils have to text in the correct spelling of the word described (some letters are given). Teachers can easily add to or adapt the question sets. ‘Commonly Misspelt Words for Year 7’ is a one-page flipchart (of 129 questions) to teach pupils the meanings of the words, as well as their spelling.
