SKIES is a collaborative learning app developed by Cal Tech grads. Thanks to SKIES sponsorship, RuckusRoots was able to utilize new technology and online learning techniques that took student learning to new heights in the Larchmont Charter School Chimes for Change program.
SKIES is an easy-to-browse “class tree” which everyone can add to together. Teachers can create lessons with embedded multimedia and assessments, and students can post and answer each other’s questions; attach web resources, drawings, pictures, video, and data; and add concept maps and mini-lessons in groups. SKIES helps the classroom become a more supportive and engaging environment, with full participation from all learners.
