Without teachers there is no learning, without learning, no change, and without change, no future.

Our mission is to build a community of the very best teachers to create our study questions, so we are asking for your support to pay enough teachers to complete at least one great ThinkAgain course. Committed teachers will join our Phlashmob community not only because they’re paid, but because they’re passionate about kids studying and learning.

About Phlashmob: Teachers are the lifeblood of learning and education and we wanted to find a way to include teachers across the U.S. in building our exceptional ThinkAgain study courses. Content that comes directly from actual teachers better reflects classroom realities, and it also provides students a learning experience created by educators.

We’ve already made the substantial investment to build Phlashmob, our online content engine, and develop ThinkAgain, our study app especially designed to help students improve critical thinking. 

Submitting content to Phlashmob is easy using our detailed course outlines and question templates to create the highest quality questions with built-in ThinkAgain "learning moments." Teachers and category experts wishing to join our Phlashmob educational community do so because they are genuinely passionate about learning and want to help ensure that all students are given the opportunity to discover their own love of learning. 

About the ThinkAgain App: The ThinkAgain app is a remarkably efficient, fun way to study. Each study course has a built-in outline so that students can easily pick the topic that they wish to study. ThinkAgain then generates a study session containing questions that are uniquely designed to create a learning opportunity by providing the student with additional information (a "reveal") to consider. The ThinkAgain reveal can be an explanation of how to approach solving the problem, a hint that connects the question to the underlying subject or an image that helps the student visualize the answer. 

Study Mode:  Study Mode gives students an opportunity to reconsider their answer not once, but twice, as ThinkAgain moves the student towards a better understanding of the subject. Each study session is recorded, and a dashboard allows students to easily see where they have been, and where they need to go. They will always have—at the end of a week, a semester or forever—a record of all they have done to ThinkAgain.

Test Conditions Mode:  Test Conditions Mode allows students to assess how they would perform on an actual exam by removing the ThinkAgain features. At the end of a test session, students know exactly how they did. An infinite number of test sessions can be generated in preparation for an actual classroom quiz or test. Plus, just like in Study Mode, the ThinkAgain dashboard captures everything so that students can refer back to the topics that had been more difficult when it comes time for a quiz, test or final. Start out in Study Mode to learn the material, and then switch to Test Conditions to see how well you can do. What could be easier than to ThinkAgain en route to better performance, better outcomes, and better opportunities?

Risks and challenges

Any new project includes risks and challenges, but because we have already built the content development site and created the ThinkAgain apps before launching our Kickstarter, our risks are few and easily addressed. Our biggest challenge is not knowing how many teachers will join our mission to create exceptional ThinkAgain study courses.

Our overarching objective is to create as many ThinkAgain study courses as possible.
