Kitehawk Learning is suited to both children and adults and is used as a remedial literacy program in primary and secondary schools, technical institutions, prisons, adult literacy and with disadvantaged students.
Many primary schools use Kitehawk as their mainstream literacy program.
The Kitehawk Online Program has been developed from the popular print version developed since 2004.
Each Kitehawk Program takes up to 35 weeks to complete. There are up to 35 Units and up to 370 Activities in each Program. The International Phonics Association (IPA) notation system is used here to teach phonics.
The Kitehawk Online Program is systematic – growing in complexity as a student moves through Program 1 (Grade/Year 3) to Program 4 (Grade/Year 6).
The online program avoids surrounding students with sensation. No bell, no whistles. We encourage students to focus on the course work, to think and problem solve. There is no pointless and distracting animation, no flashing images, no audio din – just Activities and teaching points on which to concentrate and learn.
