Queenwood is a Sydney independent girls school using LearningField. In the following Mosman Daily article the school describes its own experience of using LearningField.
Queenwood teacher Sarah Jones said the textbook-free way of teaching had far-reaching advantages for both teachers and students.
“It gives me greater flexibility as I am not restricted to just one book, I can select chapters from a whole range of different textbooks,” Ms Jones said.
“Instead of asking the girls to turn a page, I ask them to download a chapter — and all they need is their iPad.”
Perhaps most importantly, the students are relishing the technologically-driven approach.
“It is a lot less teacher-centred, which the girls are loving,” she said.
“They are enjoying self-directed learning and being able to find the answers themselves.”
