Giving Students Voice and Choice with ProConIt


I've just discovered this tool for voting called ProConit and wonder what you think on 2 levels.

First, do you think students should have input into where they sit and/or who they sit with? If you have an opinion, feel free to vote and try out this tool ProConit!

Second, though I haven't read the TOS in detail, and am not sure if this would work with younger students, but it could definitely be a useful tool for high school/college students, or even preservice teachers. In fact, parents could even vote if there was an issue requiring their opinion.

As I said, I'm just learning how this tool works, so in case you can't vote in the embedded widget below, feel free to visit the link and vote!

Thanks for taking the time to write about ProConIt and check us out. PCI was created with the idea of improving critical thinking in a collective way, so it's great for education and students, and we hope it will be used in that manner. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out - support@proconit.com. Cheers!

This could work with students if it were similar to Today's Meet where the participant can just enter their name. I would be really interested in this feature.

That said, I like this tool and will consider it to possibly monitor opinions of parents and community on school initiatives.

Students surely need to be given voice and free will that we were all once gifted. I see that you have based your observation and opinion on the book about encouraging student and I consider this a very smart choice. And it is a very smart decision to make your kids decide for themselves. This way they develop independence in studying and can choose any technique of learning they are comfortable with. Using the app you are suggesting they can easily discuss the pros and cons of to buy essay online and whether it is beneficial for them. Thanks for food for thought.
