Developed with Dr Paul Howard-Jones, one of the UK’s leading educational neuroscientists, zondle team play enables teachers to use the power of zondle games-based learning for whole-class teaching.
Zondle team play is a highly engaging teacher-led FREE interactive whiteboard app, which can be used to support the teaching of any class topic, and to consolidate learning through competitive play.
Zondle’s unique approach draws on some key neuroscience research, that competitive play can boost motivation to learn and that uncertain rewards can help reinforce the learning.
There are three steps to teaching with zondle team play.
- Teachers teach part of a class topic using their preferred teaching methods, but supported by slides imported into zondle team play and shown on an interactive whiteboard.
- Using zondle team play the students are then asked questions taken from the class topic and, working in teams, they choose their answers.
- Finally, the teams decide whether or not they wish to game their score: whether they are prepared for their scores to be doubled or zeroed on the turn of the zondle team play wheel of chance.
For those of you familiar with zondle, zondle team play uses standard zondle topics (multiple choice questions only), with the addition of references (images or text) and learning materials (slides exported from PowerPoint).
Zondle team play is still in beta, which means there are likely to be some changes over the coming weeks. In the meantime, here are some videos to get you started:
As always, we are very keen to have your feedback, to help us ensure that zondle team play is easy to play and useful in your classroom.
So please do tell us what you think!
