Videos guide both staff and pupils through each lesson. They provide the specialised knowledge and language. All videos are kept on ToodleBit's own servers rather than using an external platform such as YouTube. This ensures we have full control over content.
The videos are at the heart of ToodleBit, enabling pupils to take control over their learning.
Each lesson contains a number of video clips. Pupils work their way through the videos at their own pace, pausing and rewinding as necessary. This approach ensures all pupils can succeed.
This approach supports the teacher's role as a facilitator and observer - the independence of the pupils gives the teacher freedom to observe language and strategies, interact as required and assess their progress.
