Teaching and learning strategies
classroom.cloud supports a range of teaching and learning strategies, including direct instruction, metacognition, self-regulation, feedback, and formative assessment – to name just a few!
classroom.cloud reinforces learners’ metacognitive regulation with its supportive features, including help request and sharing of learning objectives or a list of approved sites for the lesson. It also helps learners to make informed choices, speeds up time in finding appropriate resources, and avoids distractions that increase cognitive load. It also supports learners practising and selecting appropriate metacognitive approaches by shepherding them to make useful choices about their technology approaches to tasks, such as through web, app and Teams chat monitoring.
classroom.cloud’s sharing and monitoring features mean you can easily guide learners through worked examples and gradually increase their independence as their confidence (and correctness) increase. Plus, it enables easy formal, informal and formative assessment throughout the learning process.
classroom.cloud’s app and web monitoring support self-regulated learning activities in the classroom by keeping learners only on the sites and tools they need to complete their tasks. Meanwhile, its screen blocking automatically diverts learners’ attention where it’s needed – most often on the teacher at the front of the class – without waiting and without fuss.
Feedback and formative assessment
Teachers can easily see where learners are struggling. They can quickly intervene and address misconceptions as they’re happening by seeing every learner’s screen and what tools and sites they’re using. It also facilitates ‘in the moment feedback’ on their progress via low-stakes polling, quizzing, and reward badges. Plus, using whiteboards is part of a normal classroom routine; using digital tools as their whiteboards, classroom.cloud is perfect to support this formative assessment activity whilst viewing student screens.
