CAN students make rapid progress in reading and spelling with ARROW

City Academy Norwich students have made fantastic progress in reading and spelling thanks to a computer programme (ARROW) which makes use of their voice to help them learn.

Wearing headsets, the students have to listen to individual words, phrases and spellings and then repeat these back.  The ARROW programme records this and the students can then listen again to what they have just learned.    

Educational psychologists say that using the so-called ‘internal voice’ in this way can be a powerful aid to learning.
