Homework Help?

    Hi

    Does anyone know of a website/blog etc. that school pupils can have access to and ask questions about their homework or just school in general? A college near us use 'Moodle' however that comes at a large cost. We have minimum budget for this. We would like some Year 11 prefects to manage this as part of their responsibility when it is set up but I am struggling to find something suitable which is straightforward for year 7+ to access and Year 11 to manage.

    Thanks, Diane

    I think you would be better expending your energy in ensuring that the homework set is relevant, accessible and differentiated. Sorry Diane but I suspect that this looks like a great project on paper for Y11 as part of their role as Senior Students but in reality is it really worth pursuing ? I am sure there are other things the school can ' allocate ' to them. ' Homework ' and the setting of it can be so, so problematic for many reasons from my experience. You have already identified some difficulties in your post ? Maybe you can't find the right model within budget because it does not exist ? There again other colleagues responding to this post may be able to assist . Good Luck.

    Moodle doesn't need to be expensive! Why do you think that it is?

    if you're looking for a VLE such as moodle, edmodo and google classroom work really well.
