There are so many apps for the classroom right now – an embarrassment of riches. Here’s another neat one – Spiral. Their Quickfire app is like Kahoot! The “Discuss” app is more unique, in that it allows discussion around presentations. TeamUp allows for small group collaboration. I haven’t had a chance to use it in a classroom yet, but thought’d I’d pass it along!
Great things happen when your students learn together
What happens when you bring collaborative learning to the classroom? Collaborative learning promotes the idea that students can only achieve their own goal once everyone else has reached theirs. This enables them to interact with each other and work on their social skills in a supportive environment.
Studies have shown that learning together:
- raises achievement
- encourages individual accountability
- allows students to develop a regard for others
Spiral easily integrates collaborative learning into your classroom.
