  • interactive slides
  • gathers student responses in a teacher dashboard
  • a bank of pre-made lessons for popular topics


Is it free? NO, but FDR has a school-wide subscription! This allows you to grab any of the pre-made lessons as well as create your own.


What information can I collect from students?

  • In between any your content slides add questions, quizzes, polls, or drawing tasks
  • As students answer, their responses go into the teacher view. You can then share back “best” responses or simply see what students are understanding.


How do I start?

  • Email Sarah to get your school account!



Use “Preview” to see the lessons AND log into the sessions with the PIN code to see the student view.
