This video explains what Doodle looks like when a child first logs in using a class code provided by the school.
The first step is for the child to open the DoodleMaths or DoodleEnglish app, or access using a GoogleChrome or Safari browser using the below links:
DoodleMaths - https://students.doodlelearning.com
DoodleEnglish - https://students.doodlelearning.com/english
DoodleTables - https://students.doodlelearning.com/tables
DoodleSpell - https://students.doodlelearning.com/spell
They then need to tap on Class code from School? Press here.
If they have already used Doodle before they can select My child already has an account and enter their pre-existing login details followed by the class code provided by the school.
If they have never used Doodle before they need to select I want to create an account for my child. They then need to enter the class code given by the teacher and check they are joining the correct class. They then need to enter their details and enter a unique username and password.
If the child has already created an account using the class code for DoodleMaths and the teacher gives them a class code for DoodleEnglish as well, they need to make sure they select My child already has an account, enter the username and password they created previously, and then enter the class code.
When they first log in, they will need confirm their date of birth, and then rate their confidence with this subject. Once they have done this they are ready to get started!
The first few sets of questions will be the Baseline Assessment. During this time, the app is finding out about the child as a learner. But once finished, they will be able to get started with a 'New this Week' and then their 'X-a-Day'.
Learners will earn a DoodleStar for each correct answer. If they find a question tricky they can click on the Help button and choose to have a Hint or Explanation - if it is still too tricky it can be saved to Tricky Questions (these are saved to the homepage and can be accessed at any time and worked through with Help).
The aim is for children to be within their green zone. When they are in their green zone, they will be able to access the motivational features, including Friends and avatar (My Robot, My Travels, My Panda, or My Wizard) section of the app and spend their hard earned stars.
Parents can link their parent email address to the child's account through the Settings section of the app. Once linked, they can download the DoodleConnect app and monitor how they are getting on with their programme.
