empowering teachers, engaging students, enhancing learning MISSION: To become the world’s online platform for all things education.
Introducing zondle zondle is a free web and mobile platform that empowers teachers to engage students and enhance learning. • zondle empowers teachers: enabling them to create and share educational content to meet the specific learning needs of individual students. • zondle engages students: motivating them and giving them ownership of their learning, through their choice of web and mobile games. • zondle enhances learning: consolidating classroom work, preparing for highstakes tests, all without any marking.
Zondle empowers teachers ! Teachers can (for example): • Create questions (any language, any subject, any level) or mash together any of the 1.4 million questions created by other users, to meet individual or group needs; • teach using our unique whole-class teaching game; • set questions for students to play in games or as summative assessment (no marking!); • monitor progress (in the zondle grade book); • connect with other teachers worldwide.
Zondle engages students ! Students can (for example): • play questions set by their teacher in any of 60+ games, online or mobile; • create, play and practice their own questions; • monitor their progress; • collect points and badges; • compete on leaderboards; • create their own reward games.
Zondle enhances learning ! zondle: • is grounded in education, psychology and neuroscience research (from the universities of Oxford and Bristol); • creates heightened moments of engagement (increased synaptic dopamine), which teachers can exploit for learning; • encourages students to engage with the learning content, to encode into long-term memory and automatize; • enables students to consolidate classroom learning, or prepare for high-stakes testing.
