ClassFlow ... The Newest from Promethean
We have previously discussed student response systems like Kahoot, Socrative, InfuseLearning, and PollEverywhere. The newest kid on the block with a twist is ClassFlow. As of January 2014 teachers are able to sign up for a complimentary ClassFlow account. The website states that with ClassFlow, teachers can build and access interactive lessons from any web browser, share lessons with other peers, and collaborate using the latest mobile and student response technology. Not only will ClassFlow help teachers save time at the planning and setup stages of lesson development, but it can also facilitate a more connected classroom. They got my attention with the ability to use my 5 iPads, 6 netbooks, 12 students with Smartphones, 12 ActivExpressions, and 3 laptops all within the same lesson in ClassFlow. The ability to send graphs and images to the students (similar to InfuseLearning), have them complete a task, and send it back also gained my attention.
Ron Clark says ClassFlow really makes lessons more engaging. The kids get feedback on their work and everyone collaborates together. ClassFlow really connects us all.
