A fun and interactive way to get pupils practising their spellings
The Spellings Module is a great way for you to to encourage pupils to develop their word building skills, both inside and outside of the classroom, as well as tracking their progress.
How does the Spellings Module work?
The Spellings Module allows you to create fantastic spelling lists in minutes which you can share with your class straight away or at a later date. Either choose from our pre-made lists of dozens of curriculum-focussed tests or create your own. Custom lists can be created for your learners, customised to each child’s ability.
Using the innovative look-cover-write-check method to assess your students gives them the opportunity to learn both spelling and typing skills. Additionally, for accessibility purposes, audio tests are available for words in pre-made tests.
How does the Spelling Module benefit learners?
Spelling tests can be accessed from anywhere at any time, and on any device. One of the best features of the module is its tracking feature - you can set the same test multiple times and track a pupil's progress over the course of a year, or compare them with their peers. The BrainTrain feature lets you see which words are most commonly misspelled and even lets you take these to create new, more challenging tests.
The ePortfolio app is a secure online space where learners can create a profile, upload work and network with peers. Pupils create their own webpages to record their achievements or journey to become better pupils.
With ePortfolio, pupils can display their favourite pieces of work and proudest achievements in one safe, secure online location. As more work is added, ePortfolio becomes a digital map of learning - great for viewing, at a glance, how a pupil has progressed.

- Enhance learning: Build pupils’ confidence in online learning and allow them to see the benefits of technology, plus make their learning fun and engaging
Blogging is seen as a great way to engage reluctant writers and create a buzz about literacy. Your students are motivated to write good blog posts as the reward might be having their blog posted onto your school website. When the blog is posted, parents and the wider community can add comments, adding another morale boost.
Blogging in schools is an increasingly popular way to improve literacy skills and promote collaborative learning. The Blog app allows pupils to create a blog and write posts on any topic you wish them to cover. Their peers can read posts and add comments, and then you can publish any of these blogs directly to the school website.

- Publish to school website: Either a whole blog or single blog post,
- Commenting: Teachers or other pupils can comment on each other’s blog posts,

- Encourage collaboration: Children can learn from each other by commenting on each other’s blog posts and work together on projects by sharing blog posts and ideas
- Develop e-safety awareness: By writing, sharing and collaborating online, pupils can learn online etiquette, and understand how technology can be used to share and learn
The Resources app allows you to share materials you have created with teaching staff in your school and all other teachers who are part of the Jotter Learn community. Resources that you make can be used on as many learning sites as you wish, and be brought back for revision as required.
The Resources app can be used as your school’s own repository for resources, a cloud style drive, which can then be added to your learning sites within the Learn app. You can also search the many resources shared by the community, and quizzes can be created within the app to add to your learning sites. It's a storage solution with a shortcut for turning resources into quizzes.

Our School Merits app is an online instant rewards system that motivates your pupils to achieve their targets. Each child has an avatar that represents them online, and will appear alongside blog posts. Merits can be spent on avatar clothes and accessories, or spent in a customisable shop. A comprehensive report builds of each pupil and their improvements, which can be shared with parents to reinforce a home/school link.
School Merits is an online rewards system that makes learning more enjoyable than ever. Each child has an avatar that’s created within School Merits - good work can be rewarded with merit points, the School Merits currency. Merits can be used to buy avatar accessories, donate to charity or purchase other items of your choice.
