Why Discussions?

Since Antiquity, we have understood the power of discussions in education.

Today, research shows that discussions double student learning outcomes, and teach transferrable skills like communication, critical thinking and collaboration.

Discussions also encourage open-mindedness, foster empathy for different perspectives, and help students develop interpersonal relationship skills.

Tech + Humans = 📈

Parlay is a unique combination of software tools, curriculum content, and support services. We make it easy for teachers to bring student-driven discussions to the forefront of the classroom experience. 

How It Works

Bringing your classroom to life

All great discussions start with great questions. The Parlay Universe is a library of discussion prompts that connect your classroom to the events and ideas shaping our world.
