Transforming the Class with Collaborative, Real-time Learning
I use Classkick in my classroom to see my students' thought processes in live time and give them immediate feedback. I use it the most during guided math so that I can focus on a few students at a time and push out differentiated material. My students have referred to Classkick as "magic" because I can be helping them and not need to be right next to them as I would if they were working on a whiteboard.
Lauren Prosser is a 2nd grade teacher in Downers Grove, Illinois. Lauren has always had an interest in technology since a young age. She helped make her elementary's school website by joining Computer Club in the 5th grade. Lauren graduated from Illinois State University with a degree in Elementary Education and knew she wanted to be in a district where she can incorporate technology to engage her students. When getting hired in Downers Grove, she was beyond excited to enter a district that was 1:1 and an Apple Distinguished District. Being 1:1 has allowed Lauren to explore different ways to instruct her students and give them meaningful feedback. One of the Instructional Coaches in the district mentioned Classkick and she was instantly hooked!
