Enhancing reading comprehension skills through the digital tool "Actively Learn"

The session will introduce you to a tool called "Actively Learn" which has helped some of our struggling learners develop stronger reading comprehension skills. The tool allows teachers to choose reading material that meets the interests of their classes. It allows teachers to chunk the reading and provide opportunities for students to interact as part of the reading process. We use this tool for Year 9 and 10 students, however, it can be personalised to meet the needs of any class. It is also free to use and students have shown a high level of engagement and progress. To participate in the hands-on part of the workshop, attendees will need to have a laptop.
