ABOUT

 

Once in a while something special comes along in the math classroom that uses educational technology in a way in which teachers only once dreamed about. This is a zone on Hoffkids called 'Classkick' (app.classkick.com).

Classkick is a one-of-a-kind interactive helping experience where the student writes their math work on their Chromebook screen at their desk, and Mr. Hoffman can see each student's actual screen, their writing, their thinking, process, and help them in real time, from his computer at his desk.

Classkick is a formative assessment tool. Students work at their own pace and the teacher observes and helps them individually while giving immediate feedback.

This break-through technology allows  students in a 1:1 Chromebook environment in our classroom to draw their math answers and explanations and show their thinking, and to get help through real time feedback in order to promote maximum learning and math growth.

GRAPHIC WRITING TABLETS and CHROMEBOOKS

 

iPads are being replaced with quicker more affordable Chromebooks. All Chromebooks in the world (except more expensive touchscreens with pens) do not allow separate graphic writing tablets. These tablets are needed so the students can write directly in web based applications like Classkick.

 

Mr. Hoffman's class has figured out 2 ways to make this happen.  Game changer.

HIGHLITED CLASSKICK FEATURES

  • Students can answer questions and get immediate private feedback if they are right or wrong from the teacher.

 

  • Students can "show their math work" by drawing, typing, adding images, audio recording, and links on the screen, and Mr. Hoffman can see "live" math computations and give feedback instantly via comments, stickers, scores, and audio.

 

  • Mr. Hoffman sees the student's work instantly and facilitate more feedback than ever. Everyone learns better together.

 

  • Students can start at school, finish at home, and still get Mr. Hoffman's feedback to learn.

 

  • The notebook and taking rushed notes may be gone as we know it.
