What is Seneca?
A free Accelerated Learning System based on Neuroscience
Seneca uses cognitive neuroscience to create an effective and engaging learning system that boosts memory and understanding.
In a Randomised Control Trial with 1,120 pupils in 10 different schools, students using Seneca outperformed pupils using revision guides by 105%. In other words, Seneca doubled students’ performance. These results have been published by the Chartered College of Teaching (this is the link: https://impact.chartered.college/article/feddern-retrieval-interleaving-spacing-visual-cues-independent-learning/ )
How does it work?
All GCSE courses are free and exam-board specific. The content was written by senior educators and examiners with extensive experience in GCSE papers.
All content is available immediately after signing up and perfectly supplement any existing systems or practices. Students’ answers are automatically marked and teachers can track their proficiency, engagement and performance. The system’s algorithm adapts the questions and learning session to each user, maximising their memory and understanding.
How can it be free?
Seneca’s aim is to use science to make learning more effective, engaging and equal across society. The choice of learning resources should not be a financial decision depending on what type of school students attend. Seneca is a social enterprise that funds the free GCSE platform by providing a similar, but paid, platform to corporations and businesses.
The online platform is Seneca’s main resource, but diagrams, summaries and videos are also available entirely free from Seneca’s blog, Youtube channel and TES page.
