Discussions are a silver bullet.

Student-driven discussions are a holistic way to achieve many of the most important goals of the modern education system.

When educators actively integrate student-driven discussions into their instruction, they create learning experiences that prepare students for the future. 

“Parlay really nails the steps that students need to take to deepen their learning and become complex thinkers.”

“I cannot express how much I am in love with Parlay. Such a great platform for students discussing and expressing opinions in a safe, academic, and anonymous manner!”

"Parlay promotes listening in my students. Tap ins like "build on" and "challenge" require that students understood what the person prior to them said. That is one of the hallmarks of great discussions."
