Our learning methodology follows a step by step process: Step 1 Practice, Step 2 Tutorial, Step 3 Examination. This provides a fail-safe learning approach and ensures your child benefits fully from the automated learning system.
Step 1 - Practice
For every lesson there is a step known as Practice. This module or unit of questions is made available simply to expose your child to the new lesson and the type of questions they will be required to attempt. It is also a great way to assess how much your children know about a lesson they may not have been taught yet. During Practice, children get a second attempt at each question if they need to and have the ability to skip questions they may already know.
If a child excels during the practice stage and achieves a high percentage result, the system will advise you to attempt the Examination step without the need to view the Video Tutorial, this can speed up the learning process if the student so requires. It works the other way too, if the result for the Practice is lower than the child’s set controlling percentage the system will advise the student to review the video tutorial to learn about the topic being attempted. The video tutorial can be viewed during any question throughout the Practice if your child is having difficulty or does not understand the series of questions being asked. Once the tutorial has been viewed, the child is returned to the same question they were doing.
Step 2 - Video Tutorial
The Video Tutorial is the one on one teaching moment of the lesson. These supporting videos presented by qualified and experienced teachers allow your child to watch and learn about the current topic they are attempting. Your child has total control over the video tutorial, they can replay or skip to any section as many times as they deem necessary to understand the process for the current lesson. The video tutorials explain in very easy terms what the topic is, how and where it is used, as well as how to use the required techniques and processes to answer the topic questions.
The video tutorial can be used to learn a completely new topic or simply to refresh knowledge your child already knows. Simple Play/Stop/Pause controls and skip forward/back controls allow your child to learn at their own pace. There is no time limit or restriction placed on your child and no peer pressure, they have control of the lesson and the teacher.
Step 3 - Examination
The Examination step is the final step in each lesson. During the exam your child only gets 1 attempt at the questions being asked, very much like an examination situation held at school. The Examination step is the assessment step in the learning process, where your child gets to test themselves on what they have learnt during the lesson topic. The results of each exam is recorded and presented for easy viewing within the Reports feature. Examinations can be retried as many times as the child wishes, this only re-enforces what they know and our system encourages each child to achieve the best score they can. If they excel in their results, either a Gold, Silver or Bronze certificate is awarded to your child, they can print these attractive certificates or simply review them within their Reports. The system will give your child advice based on their results. If they passed the exam by bettering their set controlling percentage, they will be congratulated and then directed to move onto the next lesson. If the score is less than the set controlling percentage the system will encourage your child to review the video tutorial or reattempt the exam. The controlling percentage, which you as the parent control, can be set to what you believe best suits your child. We recommend you don’t set the percentage too high as this may frustrate and de-motivate your child, setting the percentage too low doesn’t give your child or you an accurate idea of how they are doing in the overall scheme of things and at what level suits them. The default percentage is set at 75%, let your child attempt a few lessons and then judge for yourself, based from their results, what level you would like to see your child achieve. Remember to be realistic with the set percentage for each child; you can change the controlling percentage at any time. As your child excels in both results and confidence, you may wish to increase the controlling percentage.
