As we continue to adapt to changing teaching and learning styles, Folens Publishers have created Ireland’s very first digital homework platform for Junior Cycle students and teachers.
Titled “Homework Space”, Folens have created this platform to enable teachers and students to keep on top of their work and the curriculum whilst working both remotely and from the classroom. Each Homework Space subject has been expertly structured and authored to ensure it is curriculum aligned. Homework Space can be used alongside any textbook.
The concept is simple. With an increased focus on blended learning, Homework Space acts as a support alongside other classwork and homework with a bank of ready-made assignments linked to topics learned in the classroom. It is very easy to use, the teacher simply logs in and assigns an activity to the class, the students complete the work at home, which is then corrected automatically within the platform. This saves the teachers a huge amount of time that could be spent elsewhere on other important teaching areas.
Homework Space enables teachers to track class progress and individual student performance on different topics within a subject. The platform highlights where performance is strong, what students might need that extra bit of help and what topics a teacher might need to revise with the class. Reports track individual student performance, which can be used in parent-teacher meetings.
There are a variety of interactive question types within the subject choosing, ranging from multiple choice questions to matching exercises and fill-in-the blank questions. Subjects that are currently available are Science, Irish, Maths and French, with other Junior Cycle subjects coming soon, including Geography, History, Spanish, and German.
This unique digital offering is currently being piloted in 47 schools across Ireland, with an extremely high success rate from both the students and teachers perspectives.
