How Duhok British International
School is using LiteracyPlanet.

"LiteracyPlanet is a great programme. It is individual and can be used across all levels. It can be used at home, it is fun and has an appealing design."

Valerie, Year 5 Teacher,
Duhok British International School

 

Rast Education partners with the British Council to deliver both the Cambridge and the Oxford international curricula, for its signature “British Education for the Whole Child”. E

Every classroom at DBIS features an interactive white board, each student has their own tablet device, and further expansion of eLearning is central to the group’s ambitious development plans. The group chose LiteracyPlanet to support English teaching at its British International Schools in Iraqi Kurdistan.

It was easy to deploy into the school’s IT infrastructure as a web-based resource, and the group was especially impressed with the fast and responsive technical support and the ability to use the programme across a range of platforms and devices.

Teachers enjoy the versatility of the programme for different abilities and accessibility at home, which adds flexibility to the learning structure and allows pupils to continue to develop their English skills outside of the classroom.

Learners’ propensity for technology and demand for online learning increases year on year. It is essential that we as a school remain innovative and in touch with this generation of students. LiteracyPlanet is helping us to achieve our goals.
