The App Trick to Smarter Learning

Teacher Insights

Quite an interesting app, this! Australia has come up with a fully customizable app that allows teachers in schools and universities to pass on quizzes based on students’ course study directly to their tech devices. This innovative study app is meant to motivate students, whip up an interest in their course content and keep up a spirit of healthy competition. The app is mostly based on game elements. Researchers found that the app was well received and students performed better on app-based tasks.
