Ready, Set...

VOXPOP

Voices together in learning.

VOXPOP brings civics and history to life in the classroom through media-rich, collaborative, role-playing experiences. VOXPOP's software is easy to deploy and intuitive to use.  Teachers spend less time on planning and set-up and more time fostering active learning. VOXPOP's immersive, live-action role-plays give students a chance to explore different perspectives and work together to navigate defining moments in American History. 

VOXPOP GIVES YOU THE MECHANICS TO

1

Integrate the power of

role-play into your classroom through a new and easy-to-use digital experience.

2

Give every student a voice to support productive dialogue and shared learning. 

3

Make civics lessons relevant, engaging and unifying.

TRY VOXPOP IN YOUR CLASSROOM

Our team at Gigantic Mechanic developed VOXPOP through a 2019 ED/IES SBIR Award.

The concept was based on our belief that in today's world, it is critical for kids to be able to build better relationships through communication, compromise, and shared learning. VOXPOP gives students the opportunity to practice these civic skills while learning common core content. 

We are currently developing a library of role-plays and we could use your help to make them even better. We are looking for teachers to playtest VOXPOP throughout the 2020/2021 school year. If you are interested, we'd love to hear from you. See Frequently Asked Questions to learn more.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Students were engaged and had smiles on while they were learning – it was a dynamic day in the classroom and I can't wait for more of these.” 

—  Dave Cannon, Social Studies Dept. Co-Chair

As part of the Social Studies Innovation Network, VOXPOP is proud to be part of a new guide created to help teachers find innovative content to teach social studies in their physical (and digital!)  K-12 classrooms.


These programs are backed by research demonstrating their feasibility for implementation and promise for supporting student learning. They were funded by the American people through federal grants. The guide features 13 distance-learning resources covering a broad range of topics.
