Phlashmob Launches ThinkAgain™ App Kickstarter Campaign
Phlashmob, based on Scottsdale, AZ, produces high-quality study courses for academic, vocational and career training subjects.
Phlashmob developed ThinkAgain™, an engaging study app for students fueled by high quality content acquired from teachers to improve educational outcomes. The ThinkAgain™ app is designed to deliver study questions, each of which includes an engaging learning moment, in which an additional bit of information is revealed, giving learners a chance to “Think Again.”
ThinkAgain™ has both a Study mode and a Test Conditions mode where each question is presented in standard test fashion without the ThinkAgain™ learning options. The Test Conditions mode also includes conventional assessment metrics of number and percent correct.
ThinkAgain™ helps students control and manage how and when they study, from a few minutes waiting for a bus to a longer study period. All activity is tracked and recorded on the student dashboard. Each ThinkAgain™ course has a detailed outline allowing students to easily personalize the study process to meet their own academic or vocational needs.
Phlashmob's mission is to build a community of the very best teachers to create study questions. To achieve this, Phlashmob created the ThinkAgain™ App Kickstarter Campaign to help pay teachers to complete at least one great ThinkAgain™ course. Teachers can benefit from extra income as well as being instrumental in kids studying and learning. To learn more or pledge, visit the ThinkAgain™ Kickstarter Campaign (https://www.kickstarter.com/
