Spring is already upon us, bringing with it good weather... and final exams! This is often a challenging time for students and teachers alike. To make it easier for you and your students to prepare, here are the 5 best tools from Alloprof.
If there is one effective resource that your students will love, it is the MiniRecups. These are online tutorials that last less than 30 minutes. Each one provides a review of prior concepts, features an interactive video to validate understanding, and challenges the student with exercises. MiniRecaps can even be presented in class or offered as homework to allow students to validate their understanding. There are already 150 MiniRecups available on the site, so the concept your students need to study is probably there!
Of course, you can't be available all the time to answer students' questions, and those questions often become more numerous on the eve of exams. There is now a tool that can help them seven days a week: the Mutual aid zone.
The Help Zone is a collaborative space where students can ask questions and receive explanations from their peers, verified by the Alloprof team. A fast and reliable resource! In addition, your students can also help their peers, which is not only good for their self-confidence, but also for their own understanding of the concepts before the exams.
There is a lot to review and your students don't know where to start or how to structure their study? The top notions for the primary level and for secondary schools are perfect to help them. For each level and each subject, a dozen central and essential concepts have been selected based on the recommendations of the Association des Orthopédagogues du Québec and educational researchers. Each of these concepts is accompanied by the best resources to facilitate its learning.
If Alloprof's pedagogical sheets are a reference for finding a written explanation, the videos offer short, clear and dynamic explanations on the academic concepts that pose the most difficulties for students. The Alloprof's YouTube channel offers hundreds of videos on a variety of topics ranging from short conceptual explanations (2 to 3 minutes) to CyberReviews (1 to 2 hours), webinars covering all the preparation for some of the ministry's exams.
Who says studying is boring? More and more, educational researchers are looking at the benefits of play and gamification on learning and motivation, and the results are quite positive! Whether it's for have fun (while learning!) in class or at home, games help to diversify the routine and energize the review. Here are some examples of Alloprof games :
- End Rabbit 3 for mathematical operations
- Vegetable garden in danger to recognize word classes
- Grimoire for reading comprehension and fluency
- Lonely reaction for balancing chemical equations (secondary 4 and 5)
