Plantyn is convinced that learners need help to find the right and relevant information for their schoolwork. Wizenoze is the preferred search engine
For over 70 years, Plantyn has been one of the most important educational publishers in Belgium. Plantyn offers a range of educational tools and software. Designed for Primary education, Scoodle is a digital total solution for the classroom, where students can practice and the teacher has access to all the information needed to support the lesson.
What are the challenges?
Plantyn frequently received feedback from teachers about the need for a protected web environment for their students. They believe that their students’ experience using the internet was unpleasant; there was too much information and some of it was unusable. On top of that, students are often distracted by advertising.
The Wizenoze solution
By using the Wizenoze integration, students are more focused and spend less time on information they cannot use. They are provided with targeted information, helping them improve their schoolwork.
More focused – By using the Web for Classrooms search engine in Scoodle Play, 86% of the surveyed teachers reported that their students are no longer distracted by websites that are not educational.
Higher quality schoolwork – 75% of the surveyed teachers experienced a better quality of school work when students researched information themselves using Web for Classrooms in Scoodle Play.
“If students want to safely research classroom topics, they can use the search engine available in Scoodle play’s ‘computer room’. The search results are adapted to the student’s age: both in terms of reading level and the suitability of the content of the web pages”. -Primary school teacher, year 8
