‘Lumio’ (formerly known as SMART Learning Suite Online), is a digital learning tool for today’s changing teaching environments. This web-based software helps create engaging lessons that students can interact with in class, remotely or on their own time all on their own devices.
Now we can once again book devices in the classroom, we can use Lumio to create engaging and interactive lessons. All lessons can be enhanced using the customisable components including games, collaborative workspaces and much more. The customised activities and games provide automatic feedback to keep learning on track. These can then be delivered to student devices quickly and easily, all from a browser. Using Lumio, students can take ownership of their learning independently and the game-based activities, keeping students motivated and actively learning through interactive content on their own devices.
All learning is visible to the teacher and the class with a dashboard master view of each student’s work.
The example shows an interactive activity ‘Rank Order’ where the students are ordering decimals interactively from smallest to largest. Immediate feedback supports learning. Pupils can then work through other pages at their own pace so that no time is wasted.
I particular enjoy the ‘Monster Quiz’ where students work together to answer mathematical questions. This activity tests students’ knowledge on a topic of your choice. The quiz format is great for reviewing material, and collaborative game play reinforces the value of teamwork.
