    SchoolsImprove you don’t need to outsource when SOME tech can give you results that help. BUT Just getting right or wrong is not enough.

    What is the purpose of homework?  To keep children busy and give teachers something to do?  Its always been done ….  Give pupils practice and tell them when its right or wrong.  OR a chance for formative assessment?  An opportunity to be creative and stretch pupils?  To embed learning.  To encourage and grow a love of learning – be fun.  Engage whole family. Etc. Etc.
