A Space for Students: SpacesEDU

As a teacher, you are always on the lookout for tools that can help you create a more engaging and effective learning environment for your students. That’s why you should consider using SpacesEDU, a platform that provides a range of features designed specifically for educators. Here are some of the key benefits of using SpacesEDU:

  • Communicate with students in real-time
  • Provide feedback to students on a project
  • Capture learning through a variety of media
  • Document and manage evidence of student learning 
  • Prompt your students to reflect on their work
  • Create a digital space for your class to share progress
A Space for Students starts with students having a variety of ways to share their learning. Teachers can then use this to provide feedback, have students reflect, and to see a portrait of the students as they grow over time.

Growth Over Grades

I just love this concept. Especially as we have returned back to our classrooms after Covid that we would consider growth rather than focusing on deficit. Attaching standards to the interactions in SpacesEDU allows you to go beyond grades when considering how much a student has learned.

Portfolio Space

To really evaluate a student on growth you need to be able to see how they have grown. SpacesEDU helps you to do this. Have students add their work samples and reflect on their work. Over time you can see how they have improved.

A Space for Students

Digital learning spaces help to provide all students a voice. The key advantage to including SpacesEDU as part of your digital environment is that students can use a variety of multi-media tools to reflect on their learning.

Reflection is an essential part of the learning process. But how does this happen?

Many LMS’s are a place for students to turn in work. Students can add that same work to a space in SpacesEDU to reflect on their work and receive better feedback. Over time this work and feedback develops to show a better picture of the whole student.

Integrate Peer Feedback

Peer feedback can be a critical thinking task. It can also help students to learn even more than they would from simply submitting their assignments for points. Reviewing and providing high quality feedback of each others work is a great way to get students to think more about a topic.

Create a collaborative space in SpacesEDU.

SpacesEDU allows you to create different spaces for different purposes. This allows you to have more flexibility with how you want students to share their work and reflections.

Give Guardians Access to Student Growth

What comes home in my son’s backpack hardly captures the amazing activities and learning that happens all day in the classroom. Using SpacesEDU as your platform to show student growth guardians are able to be part of the learning adventure.

When you are ready to provide guardians with insight into their students growth invite them to sign up for a guardian account.

An App to Grow on the Go

You and your students can use the SpacesEDU app. Create learning opportunities, review student reflections. Students are able to upload work samples and reflect.
