How has Karhusuo Primary School’s experience with Reactored been so far?
When starting to use Reactored, Mervi was amazed by the number of languages available there. It surely covered all the ones that she needed when Reactored accommodated up to 16 different languages.
She also valued the possibility to diversely use all one’s different senses when learning as the solution supported all four skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking. Inside Reactored, teachers can enrich their content, besides simple text, with videos, audios, and images, stimulating students in various ways when learning languages. Its unique spell-checker engine and instant feedback mechanism are especially important for students practicing spelling. Talking about this, Mervi commented:
“The versatility of the solution also makes sure that it suits early learners and native speakers alike, whose spelling still needs practice. The solution is also a perfect fit for second language acquisition or special needs education.”
Mervi also values Reactored as a user-friendly platform as her students didn’t have any problems familiarizing themselves with it. The students were also motivated to work on exercises more when discovering that they could use the speech-recognition functionality instead of writing the answers down themselves. Indeed, the platform proved to be really fun to interact with from students’ point of view especially.
Monitoring students’ progress – How Reactored makes teachers’ lives easier?
Mervi appreciates that Reactored allows language teachers to create or import content easily. In addition, what she also finds valuable is how teachers can easily monitor students’ progress and level, which surely facilitates and supports both the teachers’ work and the learning of the students. She was very satisfied with how she can easily see students’ progress in vocabulary practice.
Reactored’s benefits do not only apply to normal exercise but also exams. To Mervi, administering exams through Reactored is a nice addition to traditional exams. It’s a useful method in vocabulary tests and, at the same time, actual long form exams. Giving her final comment about the product, Mervi says:
“After one year of using Reactored, I’m happy that we have already a license for another year acquired. Now I know my students will receive personalised and diverse language tuition both at the school and at their homes.”
