Talk Factory is a simple online tool and related apps which support learning by helping students understand how to engage in productive, supportive discussion in primary and secondary schools. It helps to develop an inclusive classroom where ideas can be explored as described in the English National Curriculum (2014):

We suggest pupils first are helped to understand why it is helpful to have a set of rules to support productive discussion and then their discussion can be coded to evaluate their success. An interactive whiteboard can support whole class discussion, laptops and tablets can support group work.p>
