After reviewing the first trial both the classroom teacher and I felt that the students were not yet reaching their learning potential – most students learnt a similar amount of sight words and we would had expected a greater variation. We wondered if the higher achievers were being held back by an insufficient amount of learning content. So for Trial 2, the Store pocket was topped up with new remediation content weekly, rather than fortnightly. This meant that as flashcards reached the Test pocket, students always had new material to transfer into the Hive.
The results below showed that almost all of the students were capable of learning at a faster pace and there was a significant increase in the number of sight words learnt during the 6 week trial.
