Classkick

Classkick is a free app designed to support teachers in increasing student outcomes. We are a company that believes in improving student outcomes through individualizing and increasing the frequency of feedback loops. As many former teachers ourselves, we understand the difficulty of creating classroom environments where students receive personalized and immediate feedback. This is why our co-founders developed the app! We would love to meet with current teachers who have access to technology (Chromebooks, iPads, computers, etc.) and are interested in improving student learning through the use of our app.

Please email cailie@classkick.com if you are interested in setting up a meeting or time to hear more about Classkick. www.classkick.com
