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 high-stakes tests, all without any marking.2zondle 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.3monitoring progress

7zondle 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.8games-based teaching

Teachers create, choose, customise or mash together questions to meet specific learning needs.Teachers set the questions to their students (to consolidate learning, for formative or summative assessment, or to prepare for high-stakes tests). Students play and practise the questions in any of zondles games (on the web or a mobile device).Teachers monitor student progress in the zondle gradebook (no marking!)17using zondle topics and games

I cant praise you highly enough for your efforts with zondle, it reaches students that I teach EVERY day. Mr Branchflower (Australia) zondle has changed the way I look at teaching. An amazing tool and a vision of education that totally resonates with how I feel. Mr Giotto (USA) OMG I only recently found zondle and all I can say is WOW!! I teach HS biology to at risk students. Using zondle has added that extra spark they needed to prepare for our state test in 2 weeks. Some of my kids have even come during my planning period to play more games so they can be the zondle dollar leader in their class. Unbelieveable. I now dream in zondle!!! Mrs Goshert (USA) Thank you so much for your help and dedication to the current (and future!) students and teachers using your wonderful zondle program! You and your team are pioneers of a program that is bringing lots of fun in learning to all ages. :) A small team making a big difference! Ms Tadsen (USA) I am in awe of you and the platform you have created. I am so amazed: I feel it's a dream. Pinch me. Wonderful a teachers dream :) Orlanda Cline (USA) 23
