Doodle’s clever algorithm Proxima ensures that each child’s work programme is differentiated according to their needs. This means that all children are working within their zone of proximal development, with an appropriate level of challenge and are encouraged towards mastery.
The information that Doodle collects, as students use it ‘little and often,’ can help teachers to pinpoint and record specific gaps in their pupils’ learning. This can then be used to inform planning and intervention to put in place.
Where can I find this information?
You can find useful information about learning gaps on the Work programmes > View understanding page. Topics that pupils have a good understanding of will be highlighted in green. Others in amber and red are curriculum areas that they need support with. You can either look at an overview of their understanding on the students page, or select the age related expectations (ARE) view.
Although children are encouraged to complete their daily Doodle, you can also choose to set Assignments. These can be used as a pre-teaching tool, to consolidate understanding, or to extend pupils. Assignments should not replace the work programme but do mean that you can assign specific, differentiated tasks to pupils, on a topic of your choosing. For more information about how to set these, click on the How-to button on the Assignments > Set page.
⭐️ Top tip ⭐️
You can also set Assignments directly from the Work programmes > View understanding page by selecting the topic, then clicking the blue plus icons.
