“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."
