Interactive teaching

NearPod

An excellent innovative platform that enables you to manage content on your students’ mobile devices. It combines presentation, collaboration, and real-time assessment tools, into one integrated solution.

PlayPosit

An online learning environment to create and share interactive video lessons. Begin with any online video (screencasts, Khan Academy, TED, etc.) and transform what is traditionally passive content into an active experience for students, with time-embedded activities. 

Kahoot

A collection of questions on specific topics, created by you, asked in real-time, to an unlimited number of “players/students”, creating a social, fun and game-like learning environment.

Turning Point

A more dated system known as Classroom Clickers or Personal Response Systems (PRS). It is a wireless voting system of multiple handsets (or clickers similar to remote controls) which are used by students in a classroom setting.
