Language learners need variety.
No single textbook offers everything nor can build creativity. Learners need to feel engaged with writing to progress and develop a solid language foundation of words and achieve fluency. Here at Scribeasy, we offer a creative and flexible online method that is appealing for learners of all ages, levels, and needs. It lets students take more control of their story while building academic, functional, and conversational skills.
Join the Scribeasy platform and social venture that helps more children connect with writing and realise their potential. Our parent/ teacher configurable platform is continually improving - supported by our partners for creative content and based on research and feedback. Our approach enables children and their communities to:
Learn playfully and imaginatively
Broaden vocabulary while learning through process and writing insights
Every day, students uncover new layers of the world around them. But helping them to express and embed their experiences into writing (which is the topic that underperforms most across the curriculum) is hard!
Scribeasy is a web-based platform that creates opportunities for writing while developing the imagination, emotional intelligence, and language flow - all of which are inextricably connected. The platform helps students learn not just by being *told* about the world, but by being given the space to *articulate* observations for themselves.
Using pictures and an intelligently reporting thesaurus, students of all abilities can hone their writing skills and embed their knowledge of virtually any topic while removing the sense of rigid “lessons.” Each story created gives the user feedback that engages the student with their progress. Other algorithms help teachers with time-saving tools such as for marking, story annotation, and providing insights per student and groups, using specific metrics and benchmarks.
People underestimate how much-limited vocabulary impacts upon day to day life. It affects levels of aspiration, self-esteem, understanding, self-expression, conveying ideas, emotions and career expectations. For SEN and English language learners, Scribeasy offers a more organic, more engaging way to engage with new words and practice English skills compared to other language apps.
Cognitive psychologist Jerome Bruner suggests we are 22 times more likely to remember a fact when it has been wrapped in a story because stories are memorable.
