How Lightbook works
Home | What is Lightbook? | How Lightbook Works | Subject Areas | Support & FAQs | Request a Demo
Pearson Lightbook is designed for today’s classroom, incorporating your existing resources - textbook, homework book, workbook, study guide, exam preparation and more - into a single digital learning platform. Based on sound academic research, all features of Lightbook are designed to support and enhance learning and student achievement.
To support your transition from print to digital, we've created a series of Pearson Lightbook videos.
Introducing Pearson Lightbook - a next generation digital resource designed to help you accelerate your students' learning and illuminate their minds.
This video demonstrates the features of the Pearson Lightbook Progress Tracker. Recommended for teachers.
By using state-of-the-art technology, Pearson Lightbook gives you the power to bring a new depth of understanding and interaction into the classroom. Even better, you can direct students to interactive worked examples, questions, hints and more, to demonstrate, practice and test a concept at the point of learning.
The Progress Tracker is a dashboard for students and the teacher to review progress on all auto-correcting exercises, with the ability to give feedback to the student. It gives students a digital record of their progress and achievement on questions and exercises which is tracked and stored for both the teacher and student to access.
Working digitally lets you go beyond text to explain a concept. Worked examples are embedded throughout Lightbook.
Navigate quickly to any section of the Lightbook by typing in the code. Teachers can assign the jump code to their class through their learning management system or on the board when the class starts.
Hints consider what a teacher might say to a student in need of assistance. They allow for self directed learning and support the student when the teacher isn't accessible.
In Mathematics students learn concepts through interactive activities and worked examples.
Students can click on glossary words in the chapter to see the definition without leaving the page they’re on.
In Mathematics active exercises are used to practice and consolidate theory - students' responses are tracked in progress tracker.
Past Western Australian exam papers (Maths Year 12) and unseen practice exam papers (Science) can be downloaded for exam preparation and practise.
Students can access the relevant worked examples as they complete exercises to check their understanding.
Before you begin establishes students' readiness to tackle the upcoming chapter. Students and teachers can see what needs further revision.
Consolidates and reviews concepts across a chapter and applies learning to a greater range of problems.
Auto-correcting exercises half way through a chapter to assess progress.
Pearson Lightbook is ideally suited to schools that have 1:1 devices for all their students, and a stable internet connection. Recommended devices and browsers are shown below.
We recommend that students and teachers have the ability to keep their browsers up-to-date to achieve best performance.
Pearson Lightbook has a responsive design – meaning the contents adapts to any device. Lightbook will work on a web-enabled smartphone, however we wouldn’t recommend this as an ideal device to learn from due to the small screen size. Tablets are an ideal device for using Pearson Lightbook.
