The interactive content can be used to practise but also examine the teaching material through quizzes or games. It can help teachers to deepen their understanding of the teaching material by engaging with it through problem-solving or creating their own projects. Moreover, it gives the ability to let learners work together on creations or projects.

Considerations and potential concern of using the tool

  • Familiarise yourself with the tool before using it in class.

  • To be able to use all assets of your creation, a stable internet connection is needed as Genially runs entirely in the web browser. Implemented links in your creation to external tools or sites such as YouTube need an internet connection as well. 

  • More features are unlocked when upgraded to a paid subscription.

  • Make sure to think of what you want to achieve with your creation, as not all templates will include the features you want, or have unnecessary features that make the creation unclear. Too many features in your creation may distract the students from the main message.
