What Makes Classkick Unique?

At Classkick, we believe that students should control their own pace and have the opportunity to demonstrate mastery on their own terms. 

As former teachers, we recognized our students learned and performed at very different speeds; we had our speed racers and our slowpokes and everyone in between. We like Classkick because it doesn't hold any student back from going to the next question while still giving the kids who need the extra time and support all the scaffolds they need to be successful. (And teachers can view where every student is and what they need help with in real time, whether they are across the room or sitting at home.)

With Classkick, the whole class is engaged because students are constantly challenged to answer the next question that they can, rather than waiting on a teacher to advance them or feeling list as the class moves on without them. Collaboration and interactivity come in the form of students helping each other and providing one another with feedback.

Note: We are always looking for feedback from great students and teachers, so if there is something you would like to see added to the Classkick experience, please don't hesitate to say hi@classkick.com!
