appear.in for education

Learning how to communicate is one of the core things we learn in school. Whether it's reading words written by others, writing our own opinions, presenting our work or collaborating in a group, students develop their communication skills every day. With new technology, the way we communicate also changes.

appear.in lets you communicate in the most natural way; seeing the person you're talking to, hearing their voice and taking in all their body language. 

Why use appear.in for education? 

When we launched appear.in in 2013, one of the first communities we saw started using it was teachers. Some of the things we have seen it used for: 

  • Talking to students in another country in language class
  • Allowing students to call into class when they're not able to get to school (because of illness, disabilities, snow, security threaths etc.)
  • Tutoring students when they're home
  • Meeting with students and parents
  • Communicating with students during group tasks or projects, where students work in different rooms around school
