    • 3. zondle 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.

    • 5. monitoring progress
    • 6. zondle engages students Students can (for example): • play questions set by their teacher in any of 60+ games, online or mobile; • create, play and practice their own questions; • monitor their progress; • collect points and badges; • compete on leaderboards; • create their own reward games.
    • 7. web and mobile games(some examples)
    • 8. zondle 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.
    • 9. games-based teaching
    • 10. games-based teaching
    • 11. zondle topics • Supports any subject, any level and any language. • More than 1.4 million questions have been created on zondle (by teachers and students). • Questions are in a wide range of formats (including, multiple choice, cloze procedure, label the picture...) • Represents at least 10,000 hours of work freely given by teachers. • Started to add some partner- and teacher-created premium content.

WHERE WHAT TIME Classroom Discussion: What makes a good quality revision/review question? 5 Using a previous topic studied in class (teacher’s choice!), each student creates one good quality question. 5 Students feedback to class. 5 Using the same class topic, each student creates a total of five good quality questions. 15 Computer room Students log onto zondle, create a zondle topic and enter their five questions. 20 Students play their zondle topic in any zondle game. 5 Students play a friend’s topic in any zondle game, and give votes for the topics. 5 Computer room Students create a zondle game. 20 Students play their topic in their zondle game. 5 Students play their topic in their friends’ zondle games, and give votes for the games. 5 possible zondle lesson plan
    • 23. testimonials “I can’t 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.
