Virtual Learning Environment
Salford City Academy is very pleased to have purchased Autology – a powerful on-line learning resource for its students. Autology is an intelligent, searchable resource of nearly 400 texts books, thousands of educational websites, the entire World Book Encyclopaedia, and thousands of hours of audio/visual material, all available for students at Salford City Academy at home and at school. Autologys resources are safe, verified as educationally sound, and easy to use. Students are encouraged to use Autology at home and at school to help them with their homework, coursework and revision in all of their subjects. Every student is given their own personal log in, details of which and help are available from Mrs. Devonport at school or the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
Sam Learning is a new, exciting virtual world where students challenge their classmates. This harnesses the competitive nature of students and spurs them on through their revision. Interactive activities, game mechanics with animation, varied styles and full audio are available.
Well Done!! We have received a Gold Award for Sam Learning which means that pupils have completed 6,000 hours, that is an average of 5.0 average hours per pupil, over 50% of pupils completed 2 hours. Let's work towards the Platinum!!
In Brain Pop, movies are available which are carefully levelled to make the subject accessible. There are layers of learning in each movie. These are extended by the quizzes and support activities which reinforce and extend the learning opportunities.
Mangahigh makes the subject even more interesting and accessible. Games and challenges are 100% maths, and they are hard work, but students nevertheless enjoy them.
Maths-It makes resources available, which are grouped into projects. Each project focuses on a particular aspect of using ICT in a maths classroom.
