The Learning English with Little Leaf (LELL) platform is an adaptive platform that enables students to learn English online, in classroom settings and even independently. The content is designed to be relevant, fun and flexible to meet primary learners changing needs. The site hosts stories of a family of plants that are told through animated videos, e-books and interactive activities.

This seminar would share the interactive learning materials, which were developed for the local Primary English curriculum by a team of academics, undergraduates and professional artists. This seminar would also explore and illustrate different functions and settings in the platform for teachers and students that were designed to actively engage students. Features of the future platform would be included, such as an overview of class performance and a profile of students’ work, which could be examined and extracted to Google Drive in PDF format. Sample of the animation videos, songs, online interactive activities, lesson plans and worksheets would be shown. Whether students will be learning English with a teacher, parent or tutor, or even by themselves, Learning English with Little Leaf has something to offer.
