Event description

Description

We would like to invite you to take part in a research project that is investigating if a new series of maths apps, Maths 3-5 and Maths 4-6, developed by the not-for-profit onebillion, is effective at raising mathematical standards in Year 1 pupils, aged 5-6 years, in need of extra support with learning maths. We aim to recruit 150 schools to the trial. The University of Nottingham is implementing the trial and the University of Oxford is evaluating the trial. The results of this trial will build a stronger evidence base for the effectiveness of this app-based maths learning programme in English schools and at scale.

For each school that takes parts in the trial the Year 1 class teacher(s) will be asked to identify 10 children in their class who would benefit from 30 minutes per day of extra maths input, based on set criteria which we will share with you. Schools will also be asked to nominate a dedicated TA to implement the intervention with the 10 nominated children in each Year 1 class that takes part in the trial. The dedicated TA will then attend a full-day briefing meeting in November where we will explain the trial in detail and we will train the TA in how to administer the baseline assessment with the 10 nominated children in each participating class. The TA will then administer the baseline assessments in December 2017.

To find out more about this study, and the benefits in taking part, we are inviting you to this interest group to find out more information and ask any questions you may have.

If you are unable to attend this interest group, please write to maria.neves@nottingham.ac.uk for more information on the project and a form to register your interest.

Please note: if your school took part in the onebillion trial in Summer 2016 and your cohorts have continued to use onebillion apps, you are not elligible to take part in this study.

Many Thanks,
