samlearning

www.samlearning.com 

The Academy has recently signed up to an exciting online learning resource that has improved GCSE and KS3 grades for thousands of students. Every student will be given a username and password, which allows them to access the site at home or at school. Studies have shown that as little as 10 hours of independent study on SAM Learning can improve grades. Homework for virtually every subject studied at BORA is set on SAMLearning, and Teachers can view the progress students are making. When a student first logs in they will see which homework tasks have been set, but are also free to explore the different subjects and revision tasks available. Rewards and prizes will be given to those students who complete the most tasks every term.
