Webuzz is a democratic learning system geared toward middle school students. The system lives primarily on the iPad which corresponds directly with two speculative platforms; an interactive classroom smart board for the teacher and a large scale interactive hub for student debates and team building activities. The overall goal of WeBuzz is to form a democracy within the classroom, utilize collaborative learning and promote a community. Students have the opportunity to choose how they want to learn and the class makes decisions as a whole, with the teacher acting as a moderator.
The Student Council component of Webuzz teaches students about different roles in a democracy. Students can create campaigns and vote for their classmates for class roles. An in-app survey helps the teacher determine the best candidates for each role and also pairs students with candidates who share similar views on class topics.
Smartboard & Class Voting
The interactive classroom Smartboard is the perfect place for class discussions and votes. Students can voice their opinions on topics by typing in real time comments which appear on the board. During class votes, students can yell their choice and the Webuzz Smartboard recognizes their voice and submits their vote.
