Scoodle Jam is a creation and collaboration tool on the iPad with built-in CCSS-aligned content for students in grades K-8. It includes tools for students to draw, type unlimited text and create with pre-made and DIY backgrounds and stickers. Students can work on their own, in teams or paired one-on-one with synced canvases.
Scoodle Jam comes with two classroom-ready project-based learning modules, nine graphic organizers, functional backgrounds like graph paper, and open-ended templates that invite students to create what they want.
Additionally, older students ages 13 and up can video chat and sync their iPad screens using Scoodle Jam’s Facebook connect feature to work together remotely on the same image or project from their own devices. The company is working on a new education friendly option for students under 13.
Teachers use the product to assist in delivering curriculum across subjects. For math, teachers have their students show and share their solutions using stickers as digital manipulatives, or illustrate and graph equations. For ELA and social studies, teachers use the graphic organizer templates to help students construct persuasive opinions, compare and contrast points of view, and summarize stories.
After piloting in elementary schools across the country for a year, the company launched Scoodle Jam to educators in April 2014. Since then, it was featured in Best New Apps for iPad, for Education and Productivity, and for Middle School.
