Top Hat is the best and most easy to use classroom app that helps you create an active learning classroom and use innovative teaching techniques to engage students, before, during and after the class.
It’s hard for teachers to lecture to a class full of students who aren’t paying attention. As instructors move to incorporate different active learning teaching strategies like blended learning and flipped classrooms in their learning environments, the need for technology in education grows. Fortunately, there has been a great deal innovation in the educational technology sector recently. Top Hat’s higher education classroom app, among the top apps for education on the market, transforms any smartphone, laptop or tablet into an audience response system, enabling professors to teach in an engaging learning environment.
Unlike older edtech such as traditional clickers, Top Hat’s 21st century active learning software syncs directly with the devices students already own and use, such as tablets including iPads, phones and laptops. There’s no need for students to purchase additional hardware. Simply download our classroom app and away you go. We also integrate with popular learning management systems, including Moodle, Blackboard, and Desire2Learn (D2L).
Interactive teaching and learning come together in a synchronous experience when you use Top Hat’s classroom app. Instructors can sync their lecture slides with students’ technology devices so they can follow along in real-time. Students are unable to move ahead of the instructor, so their attention remains focused on what’s being presented. You can share student responses and correct answers to questions posed in class using visual graphs, word clouds and heat maps.
