Collaborative Learning Platform for Teachers

Collaborative Learning Platform for Teachers | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Kiddom is the easiest way to plan, assess, and analyze learning. With Kiddom, teachers use one collaborative learning platform for assessment, curriculum development, messaging, and reports.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Great learning platform.

Juan Camilo Largo's curator insight, September 1, 12:45 PM
Kiddom is a website recommended by Nik Peachey for several reasons. First, it enhances the planning and performance of classes by putting all your materials in the same place, which works similar to a cloud. It also allows you to create a class environment online. Therefore, you are able to adjust the setting for the class you want to create and adapt it to the courses you will add to the platform. It has the option to select the subject, grade, and students when you are creating the class. In addition to it, Kiddom offers you the possibility to analize your students' learning process through easy diagrams and statistics. Those are some of the great features that we can take advantage of when using Kiddom.

Such amazing tool to take advantage of technology :) Tools like this ones are excellent to enhance the development of  la guage skills while taking advantage of technology. As it not only enables students to use their devices to learn, it also promotes speaking skill. It is a shame that it is only available for iOS. 
It would be great if the application could be used in different platforms.

Fog Stone Isle Game

Fog Stone Isle Game | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

Each student is assigned a unique virtual world that allows them to use their own ideas and creativity while crafting their environment. For example, students are immersed in creating buildings, farm plots and corrals while adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. The math is meaningful to the tasks they are doing. Work is done independently and/or collaboratively as students make sense of their ideas. They enthusiastically share their virtual worlds in class while explaining their thinking.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a great 3D game to get students interacting collaborating and developing their language & maths skills while they build a virtual village.

Lost on Babel | The Language RPG

Lost on Babel | The Language RPG | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

One thing that makes our game so different is that you play by talking. This is hard for people to imagine because the games they are accustomed to usually involve shooting zombies, cars that can jump, or blocks that disappear after changing colors. As we design this game and plan future additions, we have found that this conversation-based gameplay opens many, many possibilities. The types of adventures, the strategic mini-games, the storyline & side-plots, the depth & breadth of players’ social interactions… all of these aspects of our game have given us at WordUp Games plenty to work with.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This looks like a really interesting game to help develop languages.
