How do Ark Schools use Up Learn?
We mainly use Up Learn as an intervention tool. After every test, I set targets of 1 or more hours using the platform each week. Students then work on their individual areas for improvement. I also follow up with positive and negative phone calls home and have had a couple of parent meetings for students who were missing their targets.
I found Up Learn to work best, not for higher- or lower-achieving students, but for students who, if they are set a target to meet, will go ahead and meet it; students who can work independently. I found Up Learn accessible for all students.
Why do Ark Schools use Up Learn?
I bought licenses for students after hearing what students said about Up Learn and having a play around on the website myself. Up Learn is brilliant for consolidation because the videos explain concepts very clearly. I was impressed by the video tutorials, and the Pupil Premium discount gave us a price advantage.
The impact Ark Schools have seen:
Up Learn is useful for showing students that putting in the effort on Up Learn equates to good results. One student went from an E to an A over the course of the year.
