What is collaborative learning?

UCL Research

A white paper from London research university, UCL, found that collaborative learning, formative assessment and technology integration have a significant impact in the classroom and how students learn.

- Collaborative learning
- Formative assessment
- Technology integration

To read the white paper, visit:

Spiral have based their 3 apps - Quickfire, Discuss and Team Up around these concepts.


Quickfire allows students to:

- answer questions which are then posted anonymously on the white board
- annotate and label images using the canvas feature

Quickfire also allows teachers to carry out a quick analysis on how much students have learnt and any knowledge gaps that there may be

Team Up

Team Up allows students to:

- be assigned to groups and collaborate
- share ideas and present their work to the rest of the class
- comment on each other's work


Discuss allows students to:
- interact with presentations while engaging in discussions
- respond to each other's answers and collaboratively come to conclusions

Discuss: Practice activity

Lesson data

Teachers can:

- all lesson interactions and data is saved
- carry out formative assessment
- monitor student progress
- quickly identify knowledge gaps.
