The focus of the session ended up being on “Planning for Year 2” with Alludo. It was a great conversation with a lot of ideas on how best to drive engagement and - my favourite part - lots of actionable tips you can use today. The session also included a guest appearance from Luna!
One of our most popular features is Twitter sharing, which allows districts to share player achievements on Twitter. In the past, you had to apply for a Twitter developer account, which gives users access keys that we copy into Alludo to start sending tweets automatically/in the background. This is a great way to share with your teacher PLNs, drive engagement, and in general, is something that we really support.
Collaboration has become a serious buzzword in education over the past few years. Teachers are encouraged to collaborate with one another, and foster collaboration among their students. Project-based learning, collaborative classroom environments, and collaborative tech tools are becoming increasingly popular. Is this intense focus on collaboration just edu-jargon? The research says no.
