Freeform & Early Years

Since my last post on Freeform, I have been quite busy experimenting further with Freeform to support Early Learners. I wrote previously about the fact that this amazing app can house a variety of file types in one place, a single source of truth for students to access resources. This got me thinking about our youngest learners. Why couldn't we do something similar for them. With new units underway, I thought this would be the perfect time to create and launch collaborative Freeform boards for our 2-4 year olds, who are currently exploring all about animals from different parts of the world. In these boards students had access to images of animals, sounds of animals, and AR files to view the animals in the classroom. Not only were the children thoroughly engaged in the sights and sounds, but the teachers were amazed at the level of autonomy and independence that Freeform was providing. The students chose to move from sound to sound, animal to animal, making their own choices confidently. Take a look at the samples below!
