Seneca Learning Parents Help Guide
What is Seneca?
Seneca is a free online learning platform that students can use to help them study a wide range of subjects. The courses are linked to the exam boards used by the subjects they study and Seneca can learn the strengths and weaknesses of students and use this in the questions that it asks.
Seneca presents learners with an animation, card or video based upon the topic that the learner is studying. It then asks them questions that relate to the card. It also gives learners quizzes and end of topic tests to better assess their current understanding.
Students access Seneca using their school email and a password they set up. They must input an email of a parent or carer at the time of sign up. The sign-up details are held by Seneca and not by Aldersley High School.
Teachers can see the data produced by the students, and use this to further support students with their learning.
