Learning Goals

The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

The materials in the books are well structured and suitable for the target groups. A great strength is a multimodal approach; all animations, sounds, and small activities support reading and understanding stories.
In both the Bookr app and in the Handbook the learning goals are clearly presented and all Handbook activities clearly tell, what is practiced with them.
Students' progress can be scheduled accurately, and the teacher receives very good analytics and accurate data on their learner's progress, also if they are reading independently.
Although the Bookr app supports very independent and also home-based learning, the teacher Handbook makes it clear that the app works best when used collaboratively in class. Many of the Handbook tasks require speaking, sharing of knowledge, and reading together.

The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.

Bookr has a good amount of well executed material for reading and second language learning skills.
The teacher Handbook represents solid, modern pedagogy that promotes learning together and using language in various ways.
The learner can practice language very actively with multiple good quality activities in the app.

The supported learning goals are identified by matching the product with several relevant curricula descriptions on this subject area. The soft skills are definitions of learning goals most relevant for the 21st century. They are formed by taking a reference from different definitions of 21st century skills and Finnish curriculum.
