Other QuickSmart Projects

QuickSmart in the Community

  • QuickSmart is provided in a range of adult contexts, particularly amongst disadvantaged groups. Correctional centres, remote Indigenous communities and employer groups recognise the need for a foundation in basic numeracy and literacy for their people to develop much needed employment and life skills. 
  • QuickSmart in these adult contexts has achieved results matching QuickSmart in schools and produced many wonderful personal stories. Learners not only markedly improve their numeracy and literacy but also commonly report a greater sense of being able to learn and the importance of learning and a desire to support others in their communities and families to learn.

IN DEVELOPMENT: QuickSmart@Home Numeracy

  • In response to parents inquiring about a program they can use at home when QuickSmart is not available at their school, we have developed a version of QuickSmart numeracy for use by parents/carers at home. We have completed an initial trial of the resources and training materials and will be conducting a further extended trial of updated and revised resources starting in 2020.
  • The trial will be looking for adults who:
    • care for a child between 10 and 15 experiencing difficulty with their school Mathematics but who do not have a diagnosed learning difficulty
    • have time to conduct 3, 30 minute lessons per week with their child
    • are able to communicate by email or phone with the researchers
    • have access to internet
  • If you fit this criteria and are interested in being part of this trial, please fill in the QuickSmart@Home Expression of Interest form below:

  • QuickSmart Online is a self-paced learning program designed to be delivered to anyone who requires assistance to improve their basic numeracy skills and are caught in a cycle that precludes advancement.

    • improve students’ information retrieval times;
