This working paper provides a background context to the uses of a specific software resource, Learning by Questions (LbQ), piloted in 6 schools across Northern Ireland, from October 2017 to July 2018. There has been continued use in those schools since the end of the pilot. The LbQ resource has similarities with previous software resources used in schools in the 1990s, called Integrated Learning Systems (ILSs). This paper compares the contemporary LbQ resource with these previous ILS resources, highlighting some fundamental differences that the LbQ resource offers. Case vignettes from four schools provide evidence of outcomes arising in practice. It is clear that uses are affecting and shifting both teacher and pupil behaviours. Importantly, some of these behavioural shifts are not only positively affecting learning and teaching, but also teacher wellbeing. Implications are considered.
