Classrooms are wonderful communities — ones where teachers, parents, and students all work together towards a common goal! Whether it’s a group project or parent-teacher night, these are moments we love to celebrate.
Today, we are taking a big step and bringing that same type of collaboration beyond the classroom to create something amazing. Millions of classrooms love using ClassDojo, GoNoodle, and Kahoot! every day, so what would happen if the three of us started to think together, collaborate, and aim to find new ways to reimagine learning? After all, the three of us believe the best classrooms are interactive, value togetherness, and are committed to using technology in impactful ways to help students grow.
Well, that’s what we’re excited to launch today, with the aim of our first collaboration taking place at the BETT 2016 🙂
Here’s the plan:
At BETT, our three teams will create a one-of-a-kind experience where we’ll be exploring our biggest mission yet: Reimagining Learning.
Our teams take unique approaches to one awesome end – making the classroom a better place for everyone. Combining our strengths for a big learning extravaganza is a natural fit for fun, and we’re happy to bring our different approaches to the table:
Whether teachers are encouraging skills such as teamwork or growth mindset, or sharing wonderful moments with parents on Class Story, ClassDojo helps teachers foster positive classroom communities focused on student encouragement and parent engagement — helping teachers do the work that inspired them to become teachers in the first place.
Students (and adults!) are made to move. We do our little learners a disservice when we rid them of opportunities to move, dance, sing, laugh, and play. GoNoodle’s movement videos make it easy – and awesomely fun! – for classrooms to incorporate short bursts of movement into the school day. Additionally, movement positively impacts the efficiency of the brain, so students finish each GoNoodle session more awake, engaged, and ready to learn.
Used by millions each day in over 180 countries, Kahoot! makes it easy to create, play and share fun learning games in minutes – for any subject, in any language, on any device, for all ages — from tiny kindergartens to towering corporate powerhouses and beyond! Kahoot! is on a mission to make learning something everyone wants to connect with.
Sound good? Awesome! Needless to say, we’re buzzing with anticipation and so are teachers! Here’s what a few of them have already told us:
“The common thread holding these three great web-delivered apps is clear…all three are not only great teaching/learning apps, fun and easy to use, but…they are all highly engaging! Collectively, I refer to this trio as the ‘Student Power Suite!’ Love love love!” – Nikki Lutzke
“These apps make learning with a real fun purpose.” – Manon Hamel
“My classroom culture has never been stronger!” – Jamie Elliott
So if you find yourself in London for BETT this January, make sure to come Reimagine Learning with us (and make sure to tweet us if you’ve put it in the diary!).
With pop-up sessions at our booth examining the possibilities for social learning in UK classrooms, team members from ClassDojo/GoNoodle/Kahoot!, and a massive amount of educational shenanigans, we just know you’ll have the best time with us!
Hope to see you there 🙂
