The Villains of the Classroom

Aug 11, 2014

As a teacher in South Africa today we’re sure you’ve encountered these villains:

Major Withdrawn – AKA: Lack of engagement.
He causes boredom, fear of participation, shortened attention spans and decreased motivation.

The Administrator – AKA: Admin Overload.
He is responsible for you spending far too much time at your desk bogged down by marking, report writing, attendance registers and much more.

The Data Drainer – AKA: Admin overload.
She creates chaos with spoiled tests, lost data, missing responses, inaccurate data and complicated technologies.

Enter the superheroes, clickers in the classroom…

Captain Click and Respond-a-girl

Together, they combat the villains to increase engagement and motivation, fighting fear and smashing your administration overload. They now allow for engaging and interactive presentations, real-time feedback and data collection, instant assessments and detailed reports.

The statistics speak for themselves!
