Would any teachers in 1:1 classrooms like to use an app for their kids that facilitates peer tutoring within their own classroom? For example, a student needing help would notify the class and any peer feeling confident in that subject can accept the chance to tutor him/her. The teacher can monitor activity on a teacher dashboard.

I don't have a specific app that I use, however we do have a google doc in my classroom where students can sign up to be "teacher leaders". As students individually master certain topics or concepts if they are interested they sign up and advertise what material they are proficient in then when students are needing help they can go on and see who their go-to peers are. I would definitely be interested in an app that allowed this to occur as well.
