Thanks goodness for digital technology

The analysis of the children's writing in as much detail as I require to deliver an intervention targeted at the root of this inquiry would not have been possible prior to the move to a digital learning environment. Why? Keep reading.......

There are never enough hours in the day as a teacher and if I had to re-type every piece of writing that the children had hand written, before using Antword Profiler to analyse the vocabulary used, I would not have been able to do this, it would taken too much time and not have been time efficient.

Thanks goodness for digital technology. 

Not only was this part of the analysis enabled through the use of digital technology but also the next part of the analysis as well. Imagine having to go through each piece of writing and count the number of words that appear in list 1, list 2 and so on through to list 8.   After that I would have had to count up the times that each word was repeated etc.  Time efficient, definitely not! Once again this intervention would  not have been possible without the move to a digital environment.

This is just the beginning of an exciting inquiry and the data that I have been able to gather and analyse to further inform my direction has only been made possible through a digital learning environment.
