VOXPOP MAKES RUNNING CLASSROOM ROLE-PLAYS EASY
Role-plays offer students an engaging way to explore history and ideas. They encourage critical thinking, perspective-taking and collaboration. But creating and facilitating can be time-consuming and difficult. VOXPOP fixes that. Our software makes setting up and facilitating a role-play simple and intuitive.
CREATE MEMORABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCES
"When you put kids in a position where they have to adopt a scenario and be somebody else, it’s what they remember. Their regular boring days in class they don’t remember."
- Richard Kermond, U.S. History teacher
"It reminds you that people like you can push laws into place...not only that it’s controlled by the government, but it also can be controlled by the people."
- Student, after playing VOXPOP
“VOXPOP really gets to the heart of the issue, that there’s multiple perspectives, and the only way to see it is to play it out."
- A.P. U.S. History Teacher
WHAT TEACHERS SAY
"Over the past year, even amidst the COVID Pandemic, I used several of the VOXPOP activities with my high school students, with impressive results. As a thirty year veteran educator, I have used a number of interactive activities, none matching the level of engagement I observed in my students. Most importantly, the VOXPOP activities reinforce Deep Learning as outlined by the global partnership, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL). Through these activities, students have the opportunity to develop the Six Global Competencies of Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical thinking in a way that they find enjoyable - a teacher's dream!"
