As public schools cram more students into classrooms that are not expanding and desks only seem to be shrinking, students lose control in shaping their learning experiences and teachers lose the ability to adapt to their students’ needs.
Students use a slider to input how they feel about the material at any point throughout the class, and teachers see a line graph of average student slider values, and two pie charts displaying counts of slider values above and below a threshold value set by the teacher. This allows teachers to view both real-time and over-time averaged data of class engagement, and adjust accordingly.
Each feature is thoroughly designed to increase engagement in the classroom and minimize distractions.
Students have non-verbal means to communicate their level of understanding through a sleek, real-time slider.
Teachers can view real-time statistics of class slider values through data visuals and adapt accordingly.
Unique classroom codes are generated for students to enter the teacher's custom Engage section at that time and date.
Take a look at this quick introduction of how Engage works for students and teachers!
