With distance education, teachers seek to effectively transmit instructions and resources to their students in order to support them in their learning. This is where the Genially site comes in, which allows you to create interactive presentations in which you can group everything you want to send home in one place.

A picture is worth 1000 words

Using one of the presentation tools offered by Genially, or just an interactive image, the teacher can quickly create a dynamic work plan that will grab the attention of students. In a single image, where everything is clickable, the teacher can share instructions in text form, directly embed videos and insert links to documents, websites or a platform such as Google Classroom or FlipGrid. Many customizable templates with various themes are available free of charge to make work easier.

In addition to the worktops, Genially allows information to be transmitted to families. The teacher can prepare a virtual meeting of parents, for example for the start of the school year or when a teacher changes during the year. Parents can browse the image at their own pace to find information on the topics of interest to them, in addition to being able to refer to it later in the year.

More than a presentation tool

Genially reserves other functions for its users to boost teaching, in class or remotely, such as the personalization of board games, including Monopoly, or the creation of study cards.

The section Learning Experience* offers quiz templates. We can create activities where the student must classify elements in chronological order, associate elements between them, make an image appear, in addition to models of traditional questions such as the choice of answers or true or false. 

Fans of educational escape games will be happy to discover that models for doing so are available in the “Gamification - Escape Game” section. Five worlds with interactive images, virtual padlocks and objects to operate are currently available for free to serve as a game base for your content.

The possibilities of creation and use are therefore almost endless with Genially, all you have to do is find out what will give more to your teaching.

* Although some section titles have not yet been translated, all of the site's tools are available in French.
