Slido Today we are launching Slido for Education, a package of integrations and features tailored specifically to the needs of lecturers. The aim of Slido for Education is to help lecturers stay connected with their students by powering two-way interactions during their virtual or live classes. We planned to announce our new offering at SXSW EDU this week and we are very sorry that such a great event had to be canceled last minute due to COVID-19. Many schools are facing similar challenges now, being forced to cancel classes or move them online.
The Secret to Finding ‘Aha’ Moments in Math Class After several decades of experimentation with technology in schools, we continue to face fundamental questions: What role should technology have in the classroom? How often should it be used? What are the opportunities for technology to transform both teaching and learning? As the CEO of Woot Math and previously of Kerpoof, I have spent the last ten years grappling with questions like these.

Art - Home Learning This was the last photo I took of my students in the art room before our long separation from one another due to COVID-19. It was the day before the Chinese New Year and all of the students wore festive attire to celebrate. As we said goodbye to the students before the week-long holiday break, no one had any idea how different the new year ahead was going to be.
KS5 – BossMaths.com This is a relatively new section of the site, and as such is still growing. The resources here are not designed to substitute for a good textbook—which most sixth-formers tend to have access to anyway. The content here instead centres around dynamic interactive applets with three main purposes in mind: conveying concepts more clearly than is possible with static diagrams on a page or a slide;offering several question generators that can be used in class to develop fluency e.g. through use of guidance fading, material for mini-whiteboard or oral questioning; andproviding step-by-step procedural guides for students.

The Tech Edvocate’s List of 59 Math Apps, Tools & Resources Math is known to be one of the most boring subjects in kids’ eyes. So, how can teachers make learning math more interactive and more fun? True, teachers can make up games to teach a math concept that involves every student. But, when teachers need to help students in small groups or one-on-one, how can they make sure that other students are actively practicing math skills? One of the great aspects of having tablets in the classroom is the availability educational apps. With these apps, students can individually learn, practice, and have fun with different subjects and concepts.

Book Creator A number of schools around the world have temporarily closed (or will close) because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic, and will need to rely on remote technology to continue learning. Luckily, there are lots of edtech tools out there to help with that, and with Book Creator online you can bring creativity to your homes (not just your classrooms!). So, we’re supporting you in two ways. Firstly, we’d like to offer everyone the ability to collaborate together on books in real-time. This is a premium feature that is usually only available with a paid subscription, but we’re offering 90 days free use of this tool, to help keep students and teachers connected.

Kahoot! The outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus) has caused many educational institutions to close temporarily and rely on distance learning. We believe that there should be no limits to when and where you can learn, and we are committed to supporting educators in facilitating distance and online learning at all times. For example, educators can engage their students via self-paced games or host Kahoot! 20 Great YouTube Channels for Math Teachers December 28, 2017 For those of you teaching math, here is a collection of some of the best YouTube channels we reviewed this year.
