What’s It Like?
Dreamdo is a project-based learning (PBL) platform that’s available on the web as well as iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. It’s designed to allow teachers and students to create and contribute to projects, sharing learning and experiences with their classmates, and, potentially, the world. It’s free and easy to use, and teachers can get started by completing a quick registration process. Once an account is set up, teachers can review the project gallery, create their own projects, and invite students to join using an automatically generated code.
Pros: Easy to use with extensive support materials and access to global education network.
Cons: Quality of projects is uneven; teachers need to be mindful of sharing pictures of students.
Bottom line: An excellent tool for project-based learning; plan, create, and share learning around the world.
