Make every course engaging with a suite of pedagogical tools that enrich Microsoft Teams and LMSs
FeedbackFruits originated out of a desire to stimulate interaction between students and teachers, transforming the traditional lectures that offer little opportunity for student engagement. Overcoming this obstacle is central to our mission: helping teachers build engaging learning activities. To achieve this, we developed a pedagogical tool suite that integrates into Microsoft Teams and learning management systems that engage students in multiple ways rather than just one as it is usually the case with other education technologies.
The tool suite supports learning activities related to pedagogical themes such as:
- Peer Feedback tools structure and streamline the process of students reviewing skills or work from peers. The teacher specifies criteria by which students evaluate peers through a rubric or scale rating which helps students to give meaningful feedback to each other. The entire process of peer allocation is automated, and the instructor has the option to set the activity up as a formative or summative assessment.
- Interactive Study Material tools enhance the process of students consuming study content such as articles, videos, or podcasts. The problem is that students are often only passively consuming content. These tools add interactivity and foster social learning to enhance the study experience.
- Online discussion tools have the purpose of encouraging critical and reflective thinking and generating dialogue with peers. This is done by providing explicit instructions and facilitating a step-by-step meaningful dialogue.
- Interactive classrooms tools are built to foster engagement in class. They allow you to add interactive questions to existing PowerPoint slides or create engaging quizzes that test students' knowledge. Low-barrier solutions that prevent students from passively attending your lectures.
