Every teacher tries to make his/her class as engaging, interactive and interesting as possible. However, many just can’t or are not able to make this happen.
Captivating the learners is one of the greatest challenges for almost every teacher across the world. No matter how much they try to, most teachers just can’t captivate the students enough to make his/her class as lively and engaging as he/she likes to. On the other hand, at times, certain students are simply not interested or get bored and can’t concentrate in the class. Well, all these classroom issues are going to be a thing of the past now, all thanks to technology.
While many schools/colleges around the world don’t allow students to bring or use mobile phones in the class/school, a company has turned smartphones into an exceptional learning tool. Wooclap has developed an interactive platform to boost class interactions and measure the understanding of students, in real-time, through the use of smartphones. Yes, you read that right!

How Wooclap works to make learning awesome for students?
To learn, one has to be attentive. However, students’ attention drops drastically when they passively listen in class. So, teachers use Wooclap to get the students to actively participate in the class, by asking them to answer questions from time to time.
Wooclap uses simple ways to make learning awesome for students. It allows teachers to create interactive questions (polls, rating, fill in the blanks, matching, sorting, guess a number, prioritization, word cloud, find on image, open questions, multiple choice questions, .... more than 14 types of interactive questions). Students answer these questions via their smartphones, tablets or computer. The results are then displayed live on the presentation screen of the teacher. This way, the platform helps boost student engagement in the class.
