Collaborate online with Classtime
Get started with using Collaborative Challenge games as an exit ticket
Use Collaborative Challenge games, like POLL-E the Robot, to excite and engage students to participate in your online lesson. Students work together to come up with creative solutions to real-world problems. They answer questions on their own device and receive feedback on their answers and reinforcement of their engagement. And then teachers get immediate insights into their students’ understanding of the lesson.
What teachers say about Classtime
“Classtime powerfully provides engaging challenges that motivate students to individually problem-solve in real-time, while collectively completing missions. This tool is one of the best community builders that infuses STEM on the teacher market today.” – Michelle Lewis, teacher in Louisiana

What teachers say about Nearpod
“Nearpod is essential for distance learning because it is very interactive. You are able to see participation and not have to wonder if students logged on and walked away. For students who are not able to log-on during our scheduled meeting time they can log on to student paced and participate on their own time. I am excited to include audio recordings for students to submit work. I like for students to recall the lesson in their own words to check for understanding.” – Junique Greene, teacher in North Carolina
Interact virtually with Classkick
Get started with Back to School introductions
Help students get to know you and each other with this Back to School assignment. Students will get familiar with how to use the toolbar in Classkick while sharing information about themselves through text, drawings, images, or audio responses.
What teachers say about Classkick
“Before using technology to help with assessing student understanding I had a clipboard for each subject with TONS of copies of seating charts. I would quickly run around the room between problems and write down if students got the answer correct using a whole system of symbols. While this was great and served its purpose, I didn’t have time to catch every misconception and oftentimes I would move on to the next problem without remembering to take notes. My number one reason for loving @classkick is all the DATA it provides. As we move through a lesson I can efficiently see who is understanding and who isn’t using the amazing autograde features that change color based on their responses. I also filter the class from “low to high” so my struggling kiddos are always at the top. This helps me call kids back for small group or walk over and provide support to those who need it.” – Paige Schrock, teacher
