Xorro-Q for free: BYOD participation, assessment & gamification

NZ EdTech developer Xorro Solutions has released free access for school educators to its gamification and real-time assessment solution, Xorro-Q.

Xorro-Q enables educators in BYOD classrooms and lecture theaters to ensure the active participation of every single student in instant challenges. Challenges can be prepared ahead of time, or better, created in-class around existing resources and activities such as slide shows, videos etc.

Free Algebra Question Banks

Chatting with a customer before Christmas, he enthused on how useful it would be to have large banks of maths practice questions appropriate to his college classes. These could easily be included in contests and games which motivate students to have fun practicing algebra through the term.

Here at Xorro, from concept to reality can take a day or two… This week we uploaded 2800 linear equations problems (in five levels of difficulty) and 2095 problems around factorising and expanding quadratic equations (in 7 levels of difficulty). These resources are shared globally in your Q-Bank. It’s free for any educator to use.

Here are some great ways to use this resource:
