Wellington College Māori Department, you know where we are! 100 students at all levels (an increase of over 50% in 5 years!).
Go Vocab is an integral part of my homework programme. I have also set up revision classes (although this year the uptake hasn't been huge), so that strugglers or new students at a more advanced level can review vocabulary from previous levels more easily (and be monitored for it separately)
Generally very favorable, especially now that both the iOS and Android apps are available, making access even easier. There are still issues for some students with access. Hopefully we will have a school-wide approach to supporting these students (and their whānau) to have internet access at home (the new Human Right!!) Students like the competitive element. I set targets for number of points and accuracy (having an accuracy gauge alongside their overall scores would be brilliant! - just a thought!)
Absolutely, and consequently with their confidence to use the language as well. More guessing is happening in the classroom as well - always a good sign. Some students can reel off all the synonyms as well!
