21st century ela classroom

The 4 Cs of 21st-century learning (critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity) should be the backbone of all lessons in today’s classrooms. Often, finding a tool that is able to address all of those areas is difficult. However, Awwapp has created just that.

Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication and Creativity in ELA Classroom

Recently, my 6th graders used Awwapp to analyze the traits of a character from the memoir we are reading. They needed to use critical thinking to support their claim and collaborate with their partner to ensure that all aspects of the assignment were covered. Also, they had to communicate effectively to demonstrate their learning. Lastly, they had to use their creativity to develop a visually appealing piece that encompassed the evidence needed to support their claim.

Awwapp provides a platform with which incorporating these 4 Cs is a cinch. My favorite part is the messaging feature. Students are able to communicate within Awwapp itself. Hence, this is a skill that they need to develop through practice. By implementing Awwapp into my classroom, I have been able to provide students with more opportunities to communicate via messaging. Sometimes, their partners are within the classroom, but at other times, they are in another classroom. Therefore, the messaging feature comes in very handy.

These opportunities for exercising their creativity through collaboration and effective communication is a breeze with Awwapp. AWW app is truly adaptable for use in all content areas. Moreover, the ease of its use is a major plus.
