Make your classroom more Efficient!
Bracket Fun with Brackify!
Creating a Bracket
Adding Entries and Setting up Matchups
Customizing the look and sharing your bracket
An additional aspect of Brackify that's really cool is the ability to completely customize the look of your bracket. When you click on the "Styles & Fonts" banner at the top, you are able to personalize the bracket in several ways, such as: Bracket font and color, background color, alignment, and even a round by round color differentiation. In order to share this with your students, you can simply share the link with them, or you even have the ability to embed this into a class website. Or, you can even post a link (with an image of your choice) on a school Facebook account or a classroom Twitter.

Brackify in the Classroom
Science: Create brackets to determine which elements reigns supreme in your class, or even which scientist students felt made the biggest impact
Language Arts: Determine which novel read throughout the year was a favorite, or an in-depth study of which character was the favorite in a given story
Social Studies: Students could determine which country has the better flag or even stronger government, or they could select which leader they felt was the most effective in Ancient Rome or Ancient Greece
Math: Look in-depth at famous mathematicians and determine which one made the greatest contributions, or take a look at formulas covered throughout the year in class and see which ones were the easiest to understand or most challenging
Art: Offer several pieces of famous artwork to determine which is the class favorite, or analyze all of the projects completed throughout the year to determine which one was enjoyed the most
Music: Of course you could look at famous composers, but choosing a theme would be a fun way to gather data: favorite current pop song, determine the best song of all time according to your students, or the best song of the past decade.
