All too often, students leave school at the end of the year and don’t practice their reading or writing much over the summer holiday. When they return to school they struggle to remember what they learned the year before. To avoid this ‘summer slide’ or ‘slump’ in learning, staff at the Woolf Fisher Research Centre designed a fun and educational digital blogging programme called Summer Learning Journey.
School students increasingly use digital technologies at home to enhance learning and bridge the school-home divide. In response to this trend, we developed Learning@Home as a way to equip families with strategies to enhance children’s literacy within a digital learning environment at home.
