Influence of the Snappet educational platform on the teaching and learning environment in the Netherlands and testing the applicability of the platform in Bulgaria
MetadataShow full item record
This research looks at an e-learning platform used in primary schools across the Netherlands. It is called Snappet and it involves one-to-one tablet usage. The research questions are: does the Snappet platform lead to improvement of students’ results, whether and how does it improve cooperation and communication between students and students and teachers and does the tablet device divert their attention from the teacher. The research goal is to find out whether Snappet brings added value to the learning and teaching process. Results show that Snappet involves interaction between students and teachers, similar to those in a regular lesson, but it does not improve student-student communication, since work on tablets is exclusively individual. Snappet might increase student results in an indirect way, by increasing student motivation. It could also have a negative effect on student outcomes, since children are not very focused when using the platform.
