A real life classroom hero, Jen is the co-founder and lead program developer for Calliope Global where she works with schools, universities, and organizations from around the world as a transformational leader in education. Working with such diverse audiences makes for lots of fun, especially when she’s able to instantly engage all of them with Kahoot!
Digital collaboration for educational benefit
Last summer Jen sent us an incredible case study that she created with Eoin Lenihan, a lecturer of Pedagogy at the University of Augsburg, Germany. They met via twitter from running in similar educational circles, and soon decided they wanted to develop a lecture for Eoin’s students to demonstrate the importance of global connectedness through the creative uses of tech! Sign. Us. Up.
Not only were we intrigued by their superb use of digital collaboration for educational benefit (which is spot on, if you ask us) – but how effective it was at responding to real challenges teachers face.
With self motivated learning and intellectual curiosity never being more paramount, Eoin and his students joined Jen via screensharing to discuss how tech is redefining the learning experience.
After the lecture was over, Eoin’s class found Kahoot! to be a force of nature that prioritized the best parts of learning: collaboration and engagement!
