Knowledge is best acquired through investigation, critical thinking and real-world application. Although this can be done in class, many students may be intimidated to voice their opinions before researching them or because they are uncertain of them and don't want to share them. The platform lets students work out their opinions before they voice them. It is a safe-zone for students who may also have very different opinions than the teacher or most of the classroom. It democratizes who participates and rewards the ability to fomulate an argument and not only the ability to ask a question in class. Overall, the quieter students and the ones who are not comfortable sharing can be better included and heard through this platform than in regular classroom discussions.
