Education App Increases Student Access to Feedback Technology
Chicago, IL May 16th, 2016 — Classkick, a leading education technology provider, has launched a free web-based version of their popular iPad app. Their feedback platform is now available to any student with a Chromebook, desktop or laptop computer.
With this release, Classkick dramatically increases student access to their technology by supporting affordable, web-enabled devices like Chromebooks. In 2016, Chromebooks surged past Apple and Microsoft to become the most popular device in K-12 schools*. Furthermore, due to the relatively low cost of Chromebooks, more under-resourced districts and students are able to benefit from this technology.
“Classkick was founded on the premise that good teaching and technology can close the achievement gap. We have a lot more work to do, but we’re very excited to support affordable and equitable learning tools for all students.” says Andrew Rowland, CEO of Classkick.
Web Launch Details
Students can now use Classkick free, in two ways:
Teachers must use Classkick’s iPad app to create assignments and give feedback, but a web version for teachers will also be available soon.
Used in over 80 countries, Classkick raised $1.7M to revolutionize how students and teachers give feedback. Built by alums from Teach for America and engineers from leading tech companies like Google, Classkick allows students to work on activities at their own pace while teachers monitor the entire class in real-time. With Classkick, students receive timely, high quality feedback from their teachers and peers — whether they are in class or at home.
