The Inspiration behind Rolljak
Rolljak is a gamified engagement tool that embodies the 4 Cs of 21st-century learning: Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, and Critical Thinking.
What started as a simple brainstorming activity has now evolved into a multi-faceted digital platform to provide dynamic quizzing activities which increase engagement, creativity, and collaboration in today's classrooms and offices.
Our tongue-in-cheek name was inspired by the local Singaporean dish, Rojak: a mixture of seemingly clashing ingredients, but prepared all-in-one. Just like the dish, Rolljak enables diverse ideas to be heard and come together in any classroom.
Our first few challenges were inspired by Chindogu, the Japanese art of creating silly and wacky solutions to everyday problems. We wanted a warm-up activity to get the creative juices flowing and get everyone comfortable with creating! Soon enough, we started to explore other ways of fostering creative problem solving and collaboration in classrooms, which lead us to where we are now: a gamified platform with a strong focus on open-ended engagement, collaboration, and peer assessment.
Over the past 3 years, our team has worked on creating and developing Rolljak to share our vision of bridging collaboration and innovation to create a game-changing audience engagement platform.
