Giving children the best start in life
Using digital technology effectively to support teaching, learning and progress.
The unique chatta app has been designed specifically to support the chatta teaching process. The app, developed by award winning teachers, has been created with simplicity and ease of use in mind to help children to become better communicators, writers, readers and thinkers.
The chatta app (available for iPad, iPhone and Android tablets and phones) engages every learner in talk. Combined with the chatta approach the app encourages pupils to reflect on, review and improve oral language – in a similar way to how written work is redrafted. Adult descriptions provide a powerful model for the children to listen to and allows them to link language to their experiences.
Oral Fluency & Narrative Competence
By linking images and voice recordings, children build up to a deeper understanding of order and sequence, leading to oral fluency and narrative competence. The images and voice recordings also provide a perfect tool for children to rehearse oral narratives for the purpose of reflection and revision for working memory.
Sharing 'chats' with parents and carers
The sharing ‘chats’ feature provides schools with a powerful and dynamic tool for home/school learning. Chats are easily shared with parents and carers and are viewable on any device connected to the internet.
