Freckle is a new Maths product from the Accelerated Reader company and is designed along the same lines. It is an online resource which gives a baseline test initially which establishes the students’ strengths and weaknesses in Maths. The programme then provides personalized support material in areas required and this is done in a fun and engaging way. Assessment tests can be administered at intervals to check progress.
Freckle continuously adapts for personalised maths practice, while offering teachers the ability to focus on individual pupil objectives. It delivers real-world scenarios, skills practice, and peer-to-peer support with pupil-friendly incentives and age-appropriate designs to provide a balance of fun and learning. Freckle has over 60k carefully graded maths questions and continuously adapts to meet students where they are and help them progress on their individualised learning path. Freckle engages every pupil by rewarding their achievement and delivers an age-appropriate experience that will have them asking for Freckle. In the 2019–2020 school year, students in the U.S. who used Freckle 15–30 minutes per day experienced measurable growth toward maths fluency.
BIO: In his role as Education Centre Director, Pat Hanrahan have been involved in the evaluation, improvement planning and school leadership development in hundreds of schools. This work placed a strong emphasis on the leadership roles in the schools and how this links to effective teaching and learning. As a Principal in 2 schools as well as a PD leader and evaluator, Pat is very familiar with all school and DES requirements. He used Accelerated Reader in his own school and believes all schools should consider it as a way of developing reading and comprehension. More recently, Freckle has been launched as a maths resource and Pat also sees this as an option for Primary schools to develop an individualised programme for pupils.
