The staff at Dunne STEM Academy are always looking for ways to use technology to support and improve the teaching of English literacy in the classroom.
The school tried LiteracyPlanet on a six month pilot program before participating in Word Mania USA, a fun, word-building competition run by LiteracyPlanet. After noticing incredible engagement levels from the students, they decided to implement the full program.
Students at Dunne Technology Academy have found LiteracyPlanet’s gamified style highly engaging. After completing 2,533 exercises in February engagement spiked in March to 6,037 exercises as students familiarized themselves with the program and started to interact with it in their own time.
Students enjoyed the fun aspects of the exercises, which helped them consolidate key English literacy concepts.
"LiteracyPlanet is a wonderful supplement to our reading instruction. The lesson are adaptive, which helped to enrich student’s comprehension through informational text."
