Monkey swing

ProConnect tool

Purpose

  • Creating interaction
  • Linking devices to each other
  • Collaborative learning (add and subtract)
  • Stimulating engagement

Start ProConnect and let students log in with the group code. 

Open the media library, select 'Tools' and then ProConnect. Open Monkey swing by clicking on it. 

A window pops up in which you can enter the numbers, calculations in which some parts are covered by stains and the total amount of calculations.

Once you press 'Start', the calculations appear on the devices of the participants. In Presenter, the participants are presented as monkeys. Participants who answer questions correctly, see their monkey climb higher in Presenter. The participant who answers all the questions correctly, sees his or her monkey finish first. Participants see their position in the race at the bottom on their own device.

The Monkey swing stops once all monkeys have finished or when the teacher presses the stop button. The top three is revealed in Presenter. Click on 'Full list' to reveal the positions of all participants in Presenter.

Close the ProConnect session by clicking the 'x' in the green toolbar.
