LessonApp is for teachers and trainers for the purpose of designing quality lessons for better learning. At this point, it is not a learning platform for interaction between teachers and their students.
LessonApp's pedagogy is based on the latest scientific research and inspired by Finnish teachers. The focus is on designing lessons which motivate students’ learning and improve their 21st century skills. Lessons are usually student-centred rather than teacher-led. This way of teaching has been proven to be very profound and effective in terms of learning outcomes and students’ wellbeing.
