Bridge International Schools has developed a free interactive mobile quiz tool that allows children to easily access learning for their grades on WhatsApp.
The quizzes improve learning by helping children test and practice. The Bridge WhatsApp quizzes complement other [email protected] learning products which include Bridge online, self-study activity packs, digital story books and learning guides.
The Bridge mobile interactive quizzes are accessed on WhatsApp number +256 3232 00615. Once you are in the chatroom, you begin interaction by typing zero (0) to get started. The quizzes are free and available to all parents and pupils in Uganda.
Speaking during the launch of the free interactive mobile quizzes, Christine Apiot, the acting Country Director Bridge Schools Uganda said that the quizzes are an effective strategy for helping children practice learning at home and retain what they have learned.
“Parents and caregivers can select quizzes for their children’s grade and preferred subject. They can then sit back and enjoy as their children test their knowledge. They take 3 – 10 minutes to complete, and help children stay on a path to academic excellence. After the quiz, users can choose to take the quiz again, try a different subject, or be done,” said Ms. Apiot.
The hundreds of grade-appropriate quizzes in multiple subjects provide pupils an opportunity to practice a wide range of skills, from using vocabulary to solving math equations. Pupils receive instant feedback on their success.
Nasikawa Carol is a parent at Bridge School Mbiko. She is one of the parents who are already using [email protected] quizzes to help her daughter learn at home.
“I am using the quizzes to help my daughter learn how to trace, speak English, and identify numbers. The quizzes are very simple to use and friendly. They couldn’t have come at a better time than now when schools are closed,” remarks Nasikawa.
Bridge International Academies is working hard every day to ensure that children continue to learn at home to reduce learning loss when schools in Uganda are reopened post Covid-19.
