When a teacher registers a school for the first time on GoBubble, they receive a 6 digit code for the school. They share this code with colleagues, students and parents. Everyone at the school joins with the same code. The system then builds out year groups automatically - so there's no child or staff lists to upload.

It’s a fantastic platform - it really prepares pupils for a life they will inevitably lead online.

Marie-Clare Kelly found GoBubble:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Pupils can work together as a class, groups, or even globally - projects such as the Digital Worlds Fair really enhance this. It is safe social networking, so the collaboration opportunities are endless.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    The fact that kindness is rewarded means that pupils are more inclined to think carefully about their responses before posting them. Rewarding positive interactions makes a real difference.
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    Working collaboratively on a task in class in a digital platform that the pupils are knowledgable about means that teachers need to intervene far less frequently. They know it better than I do!

Used GoBubble for 18 months

Jul 2020

There is so much in GoBubble worth exploring. It’s ease of use across any device, it’s safety, it’s ability to connect students and teachers from around the globe, and the fact that it is free helps bridge the equity and access gap. Any program that provides a space for student voice, local and global collaboration, digital citizenship, creative problem solving and fun gets a 10 in my book.

M. Drezek found GoBubble:
  • Significantly increases student collaboration
    Students not only have access to the ideas, creations, and questions from those in their school but from those around the world. GoBubble provides a gateway to safe global collaboration. From Channels, to challenges/contests, there are various ways to spark collaboration in an online space that lends itself to this.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    GoBubble is built with a focus on wellbeing. Naturally, this helps behavior. The tool is available during school hours only (unless expanded upon with parent/guardian permission) to place an emphasis on balance and screen time. There are also rewards for the likes you give over the likes you get. This helps students value using technology to lift others up. The AI built in to catch negative behaviors helps students to reflect on how they are using GoBubble while also protecting other users from any inappropriate content.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload
    GoBubble doesn’t necessarily reduce teacher workload but it also doesn’t add to teacher workload. This tool is an investment of time because of what it can do for students and for social emotional learning. It’s worth the effort because when students feel their voice is heard and have a safe space to share, they are more likely to be engaged in their other academics. They also can bring those academic conversations into GoBubble.
  • Significantly saves school money
    As a free tool, this is one less program a school needs to add to their school budget. With what you are saving from GoBubble, you can invest funds into other critical resources like mental health, infrastructure and staff needs.
  • Moderately improves behaviour or wellbeing
    GoBubble is a community. When educators find community, especially a supportive and positive one like GoBubble educators, their wellbeing improves. With all of the demands on educators today, there is no easy fix to teacher wellbeing but community is key. GoBubble brings people together.
