Increasing Comprehension when Students Work at their Own Pace
In his many years of experience and working in a 1:1 math class, Classkick provides a unique opportunity for each student. The students can work at their own pace and get help at any time. They can also ask the teacher to check answers once work is completed. Students can ask other students for help to get immediate support if the teacher is busy. When students help others, it is clear they know and understand the material. Plus, the students can directly write on each other’s work -- they don’t need to get up and talk outloud, thus limit the amount of disruptions. Classkick benefits everyone because students get immediate help and can help others when finished. The benefit for teachers is the ability to quickly help students from a device and see what each student is doing at any given moment. It is an overall great way of giving questions or presenting information.
