Research Focus: does spelling star make an impact on spelling skills?
We asked, ‘Can the use of the spelling App ‘Spelling Star ‘make a significant impact on the spelling skills of lowest ability Year 7 students?’. We are a school which uses iPads to support learning. One of the apps on the iPads is spelling star which is an interactive spelling app which allows teachers to create lists of words and record audio to accompany them. This is useful as meanings and context can be part of the audio recording. This is great for teaching key words across the curriculum. We found that the app does have a significant impact.
