The use of Padlet has become essential to our virtual math classes, as classroom instructions are given to students and resources are shared through the Northbridge Padlet platform. Moreover, Padlet has enabled our students to upload classwork and homework and teachers are able to provide additional feedback to support their learning.
Finally, with ongoing virtual lessons it is important to gamify the classroom, which is a way to make lessons more engaging and to foster collaboration amongst students who can be isolated in their homes. In math lessons teachers, have incorporated Kahoot, which is an online platform that quizzes students in a competition layout.
Students compete with one another in a series of multiple-choice questions either individually on in teams. Kahoot has enabled Math classes to become more engaging and interactive for students and allowed teachers to formally assess their students. This form of assessment has been essential in learning which mathematical skills students have obtained and which skills need to be further reinforced.
