Popular K-12 Use Cases

Swivl is used for a range of activities in over 40,000 schools around the world.

Self Reflection

Teachers can focus the video recording on their students or on themselves. Then they can review the video, add personal notes at specific moments, switch audio channels to listen to different students, and summarize the main points to improve the next day.

Peer feedback

The next step after self reflection is peer feedback, either from a trusted colleague or within a PLC. Other teachers can provide contextual help and support using a custom Rubric based specific to the teacher who shared the video.


By collaborating over teacher recorded video, coaches can spend more time focused on coaching and less time traveling between classrooms.

Easy and effective
We cannot see or hear everything. With Swivl, you have a much clearer picture of what your students are doing, and most importantly, what they are ‘getting.’

I am convinced that videos are productive tools to enhance teachers’ professional development and students’ achievement.  The Swivl robot’s ability to navigate with the teacher’s movement make it easy to get the full picture of what is happening in the classroom.
Keysha McIntyreMath Program SpecialistFulton County Schools, GA
As a special education teacher who has students reflect on elements of their presentations such as body language and clarity of speech, Swivl allows my students to receive feedback immediately by reviewing their presentations. Swivl is helping our students develop 21st century learning skills that are essential for success.
Kristina HolzweissLibrary Media SpecialistBay Shore Middle School, NY
